Active Energy Group PLC (LON:AEG) has received a letter of support from the Governor's Office of Energy Development in Utah for its CoalSwitch alternative fuel.

The group’s first five-tonne-per-hour biomass fuel plant in Utah will be completed next month and will provide proof-of-concept testing for a roll-out in power stations as an alternative to coal.

This plant will operate for a temporary period to create process algorithms, validate system performance and create products for Rocky Mountain Power to utilise in a commercial scale test.  

This test supports the STEP Grant approved by the Utah Legislature in 2016, seeking an alternative coal supplement material to be tested at the Hunter Power Plant located in Castle Dale, Utah, in early 2018. 

This temporary ABS plant will produce approximately 450 tonnes of material to be used for this STEP Grant test and additional material to be analysed by industry. If ABS' test is successful, OED anticipates continued investment by installing a permanent plant in Utah.

“The environmental credentials are being recognised across the board and we are extremely excited about the future, especially as we expect to deliver our first commercial quantities to partners, including Rocky Mountain Power, in the near future."
