ENrG Receives NYSERDA Contract (posted 9/21/07)

ENrG Inc. has been awarded a $250,000 contract by NYSERDA to develop a ceramic component for removing CO2 from exhaust gases created by coal-burning power plants.

ENrG Inc. has been awarded a $250,000 contract by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to develop a ceramic component for removing carbon dioxide from exhaust gases created by coal-burning power plants. The award is in support of a $4.7 million Department of Energy contract awarded to Praxair, Inc. to develop a system for removing carbon dioxide emissions at such plants.

“NYSERDA’s contract with ENrG Inc. holds great promise for promoting environmentally safe, economical energy production technologies,” said Paul D. Tonko, president and chief executive officer of NYSERDA. “The capture of carbon dioxide is a significant challenge to our ability to meet the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and Governor Spitzer’s ‘15 by 15’ emissions reduction targets. Having ENrG Inc. and Praxair, two Buffalo-area companies, working together on this effort is great news for New York’s economy and our efforts to attract high-tech, clean energy business and development to the Empire State.”

ENrG Inc. plans to incorporate the production process for this new technology into its current membrane fabrication facility, where it will further advance processes and manufacturing techniques, and provide low-cost production. Previous NYSERDA and National Institute of Standards and Technology Advanced Technology Program investments at ENrG established the potential for large stationary system fuel cell products and transportation system markets. This latest effort will leverage and expand ENrG’s membrane development and manufacturing capabilities.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to work with Praxair on this leading-edge technology, and thank NYSERDA for recognizing its potential with funding support,” said John A. Olenick, president of ENrG. “Ultimately, this program will lead to the creation of high-technology engineering and manufacturing jobs at ENrG and in Western New York. ENrG Inc. is excited to be part of the development of a clean coal corridor.”
