Unity Power Alliance Receives U.S. DOE Award Of $1 Million To Advance Company's Pressurized Oxy-Combustion Technology





WORCESTER, Mass., Oct. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Unity Power Alliance (UPA), a joint venture between ThermoEnergy Corporation (OTCBB: TMEN) and ITEA, S.p.A., announced today that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has provided final approval on an award of $1 Million to advance the company's  pressurized oxy-combustion technology for clean, coal-fired power generation.

The Unity Power Alliance (UPA) award team includes ThermoEnergy of Massachusetts, ITEA S.p.A., Massachusetts Institute of Technology ( MIT), and Georgia Tech.  The first key part of UPA's program is a techno-economic modeling optimization to be conducted by MIT. The new Carbon Neutral Energy Solutions (CNES) laboratory at Georgia Tech will host the second major part of the project which is testing ITEA's "flameless" reactor over a wide range of pressures.  The results will then be analyzed in conjunction with the techno-economic modeling conducted by MIT. ThermoEnergy will build the bench-scale testing unit.

"The core of the technology that the UPA will optimize involves a "flameless" combustion system that was developed by ENEL SpA and ITEA and is already successfully operating at a 5MWth plant in Italy," said Unity Power Alliance Managing Director, Robert Marrs. We are confident that the team can achieve even greater efficiencies given the opportunity to test the reactor at a variety of higher pressures within the scope of our combined UPA patents."

After successful completion of the first phase of the program, it is anticipated that a much larger Phase 2 will occur with DOE/NETL awards in the $10-20 million range toward the construction of a pilot scale project.
