Unity Power Alliance To Present Advancement In Clean Coal Technology At "Cutting Edge Coal Utilization Showcase" In Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert Marrs, Managing Director of the Unity Power Alliance (UPA) will present the benefits of pressurized oxy-combustion (POXC) technology on June 20 at the 2012 "Cutting Edge Coal Utilization Showcase" sponsored by  the Coal Utilization Research Council (CURC) for members, congressional staff, and invited energy industry guests.

Unity Power Alliance is a partnership between ThermoEnergy Corporation (OTCBB: TMEN) ( of Worcester, MA and ITEA S.p.A. of Gallarate, Italy.

"UPA is working to accelerate the development of clean coal power plants utilizing POXC, which offers significant cost and efficiency advantages over alternative technologies, allowing coal to burn cleaner and more efficiently, with dramatically higher heat transfer rates," Marrs said.  Enel S.p.A., one of the world's largest utilities, has contributed significant support to the advancement of the technology.

Additional benefits include the ability to capture CO2 under pressure with virtually zero emissions, provide net efficiencies greater than 35%, the ability to retrofit brownfield facilities, deliver a net water neutral water solution, and eliminate the hazardous elements of fly ash, Marrs noted.

UPA will be able to utilize ITEA of Italy's patented flameless ISOTHERM Pwr technology that has been proven at both a 5MWth facility in Italy and a 15MWth facility in Singapore, Marrs said.  The combination of ThermoEnergy's high pressure oxy-combustion patents with ITEA's lower pressure oxy-combustion technology and know-how will facilitate the rapid implementation of a nominal 50MWth pilot, followed by a 320MWe facility, Marrs added.

POXC captures nearly 100% of the CO2 under pressure, as well all of the SOx, NOx, Hg and PM associated with conventional coal power plants.  Notably, the system does not require extensive Flue Gas Recycling (FGR) treatment associated with atmospheric oxy-combustion systems, thereby eliminating significant CAPEX and OPEX costs, Marrs said.
