XI'AN, China, Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Recycling Energy Corp. (NASDAQ: CREG), a leading developer of waste energy recycling projects for power generation in China, today announced its wholly-owned subsidiary Xi'an TCH Energy Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Xi'an TCH") entered into a contract with Hebei Tangshan Rongfeng Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. (Tangshan Rongfeng) to construct a coke gas (CDQ waste heat) power generation project in the mode of BOT (build-operate- transfer).
Tangshan Rongfeng is a coking and steel rolling integrated enterprise and can produce 1.4 million tons of coke each year. Based on Rongfeng's existing production line, Xi'an TCH will construct CDQ (Coke Dry Quenching) facilities and 20MW power station to generate electricity by using waste heat from production process and reduce the emission of carbon dioxide at the same time. All electricity generated in this project will be purchased and used by Tangshan Rongfeng, Xi'an TCH is to collect energy-saving service fees according to the electricity generated.
In accordance with the contract, Xi'an TCH will invest USD 24.5 million ( RMB 150 million) to construct CDQ facilities and waste heat power station. In addition to financial investment, Xi'an TCH will be responsible for construction, procurement, operation and management of power station. The operation period of this project will be 20 years during which Xi'an TCH will collect energy-saving service fees at RMB 0.582/kWh for the first ten years and RMB0.432/kWh for the second ten years; it is estimated that the annual net earnings will exceed USD 5.9 million ( RMB 36 million) and total investment may be recovered within 5 years.
Mr. Ku Guohua, CREG's chairman and CEO commented, "We are excited to sign this large project after the Zhongtai waste heat power generation project we signed early this month. CDQ power generation is an innovative technology in coking industry to have waste heat reused to save energy and reduce air pollution. In recent years, the Chinese government has vigorously promoted new technology and energy-saving techniques. Coke dry quenching will replace coke wet quenching, which causes heavy pollution and is out of date. This project will expand our market share in CDQ power generation industry and increase our profit. At the same time, it will help reduce fog and haze and make more contributions to China's environmental protection."About China Recycling Energy Corp. China Recycling Energy Corp. (NASDAQ: CREG or "the Company") is a leading developer of waste energy recycling projects for industrial applications in China. Our waste energy recycling projects allow customers who use substantial amounts of electricity to recapture previously wasted pressure, heat, and gas from their manufacturing processes to generate electricity. We currently offer waste energy recycling systems to companies for use in iron and steel, nonferrous metal, cement, coal and petrochemical plants. We construct our projects at our customer's facility and the electricity produced is used on-site by the customer. We provide an energy-efficient solution aimed at reducing the air pollution and energy shortage problems in China. Our projects capture industrial waste energy to produce low-cost electricity, enabling industrial manufacturers to reduce their energy costs, lower their operating costs and extend the life of primary manufacturing equipment. The Chinese government has adopted policies to encourage the use of recycling technologies to optimize resource allocation and reduce pollution. Currently, recycled energy represents only an estimated 1 percent of total energy consumption and this renewable energy resource is viewed as a growth market due to intensified environmental concerns and rising energy costs as the Chinese economy continues to expand. Our management and engineering teams have over 20 years of experience in industrial energy recovery in China. For more information about CREG, please visit http://www.creg-cn.com.
