The Unity Power Alliance, a joint venture between ThermoEnergy Corporation and ITEA, S.p.A., recently announced that it received a $1 Million Phase 1 award from the U.S. Department of Energy to help fund the project under a special DOE program to advance technologies for efficient, clean coal power and carbon capture. After successful completion of the first phase of the program, it is anticipated that a much larger Phase 2 will occur, with DOE awards in the $10-20 million range applied toward the construction of a pilot scale plant.

Construction of the bench scale unit will begin in late in Q4, 2012 at ThermoEnergy's 48,000 sq ft, manufacturing facility in Worcester, Massachusetts. Fabrication and assembly is expected to be completed in Q1 2013. Testing will take place at the new Carbon Neutral Energy Solutions (CNES) laboratory at Georgia Tech, and will be based on techno-economic models provided by MIT.
