BP Biofuels Executive Joins Primus Green Energy As Chief Infrastructure Officer

HILLSBOROUGH, N.J., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In a move that accelerates commercialization of its STG+ gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology, Primus Green Energy Inc., an alternative fuel company based in Hillsborough, N.J., today announced the addition of John Doyle as Chief Infrastructure Officer. Doyle joins Primus from BP Biofuels, where he was the Head of Applied Engineering, in charge of developing and maintaining the core commercial process design of BP Biofuels' large-scale commercial build program.

Doyle will lead project management and operations of Primus' designed, owned and operated and licensed commercial plants. While at BP Biofuels, Doyle created the Applied Engineering Group to work closely with research and development and outside organizations to identify the best new technologies and drive them through to commercial application. Doyle has also held executive positions at Verenium, and subsequently, at its joint venture with BP, Vercipia Biofuels. He has held senior management and engineering positions at GE Environmental Services and Booz, Allen and Hamilton.

"With our demonstration plant nearing completion, Primus is moving steadily toward commercialization. John, one of the industry's top project managers, brings with him over two decades of experience, which will be critical as he leads these efforts," said Robert Johnsen, CEO of Primus Green Energy. "As a result of a career bringing the best conventional and alternative fuel technologies to commercialization, he understands what is required to build and operate a first-of-a-kind commercial plant."

Primus is nearing completion of its demonstration plant, which is expected to reach mechanical completion at the end of Q1 2013, and expects to break ground on its first commercial plant in late 2013. Primus' STG+ technology converts syngas derived from natural gas and/or biomass into drop-in high-octane gasoline and jet fuel with industry leading process efficiencies. The fuels produced from the Primus STG+ technology are very low in sulfur and benzene compared to fuels produced from petroleum, and they can be used directly in vehicle engines as a component of standard fuel formulas and transported via the existing fuel delivery infrastructure.
