FuelCell Energy Announces Contract To Convert Landfill Gas To Ultra-Clean Electricity, Heat And Renewable Hydrogen

Stocks in this article: FCEL

DANBURY, Conn., Feb. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FuelCell Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq:FCEL) a global leader in the design, manufacture, operation and service of ultra-clean, efficient and reliable fuel cell power plants, today announced a contract to demonstrate a tri-generation stationary fuel cell power plant near Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, utilizing landfill gas as the fuel source. The landfill gas clean-up will be performed by Quadrogen Power Systems, Inc., the prime contractor, and the cleaned landfill gas will be used by the fuel cell power plant to generate multiple revenue streams, including ultra-clean electricity, usable high quality heat and renewable hydrogen. The heat in the form of hot water will be supplied to Village Farms, a leading hydroponic greenhouse operator in North America. Renewable hydrogen will also be exported for vehicle fueling or industrial applications.

"Part of our corporate strategy is to be highly sustainable and responsible steward of natural resources," said Jonathan Bos, Development Director, Village Farms International, Inc. "We are excited to be participants in the fuel cell landfill gas project to ascertain its benefits both to our business by converting harmful waste gas into food grade carbon dioxide, as well as other business opportunities coming out of other value streams from the landfill waste gas."

"This technology will help greenhouse operators improve their competitiveness by making their operations more environmentally and economically sustainable through the use of biogas," said Canadian Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz. "We are proud to be a partner in these types of innovative energy solutions that increase the profitability of the agriculture sector."

"Partnering with FuelCell Energy combines our gas clean-up expertise with the tri-generation power output of the stationary fuel cells as we convert a harmful byproduct of landfills into multiple revenue streams," said Alakh Prasad, President & CEO, Quadrogen Power Systems, Inc. "Cleaning landfill gas before it is used by the fuel cells represents unique challenges of removing impurities that can impact fuel cell performance as well as removing harmful organic chemicals which do not affect the fuel cells but can't be released to the atmosphere."
