Alliance BioEnergy Plus, Inc. Completes FEL 1 Engineering Stage For Construction of First Commercial Plant
The Company anticipates that its central Georgia licensee, RRDA, will break ground on the first commercial plant in the 4th quarter of 2015 and be ready for operations sometime in early summer of 2016.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Aug. 11, 2015 -- Alliance BioEnergy Plus, Inc. (OTCQB:ALLM) (the "Company") announced today the completion of FEL 1, the first of four engineering stages that are required to complete construction of the first commercial CTS plant to be located in central Georgia and expected to break ground this fall.
Working together with Process Engineering Associates, LLC in Alabama and DCR Engineering Services of Tampa, Fl the Company completed this first critical phase weeks ahead of schedule and under budget, which allowed the team to proceed immediately with FEL 2 and start focusing more on the site-specific components of the process.
The engineering process for building a plant, that can convert a 1,000 mt a day of cellulose biomass, using the CTS patented system is a four-stage process; Front-End-Loading known as FEL 1 thru 3 and Detail. FEL 1, which is now complete, focused on magnitude. This includes the general layout of the plant, project scope, design and execution strategy, as well as capacity, raw material handling and storage needs. FEL 1 also started to look at major equipment size and sources, local civil engineering requirements and local utilities and infrastructure. FEL 2, which is now underway, starts to get much more specific on these and many other components of the build including; site specific needs, PFD's with heat and material balances as well as product purity, piping and electrical layouts. FEL 2 is expected to be complete in early Q4 2015.
The Company anticipates that its central Georgia licensee, RRDA, will break ground on the first commercial plant in the 4th quarter of 2015 and be ready for operations sometime in early summer of 2016. "We are extremely pleased with the progress of the plant engineering and how well this team works together." Said Jim Brown, President of the Company's subsidiary AMG Energy Group who is tasked with overseeing this project. He went on to say, "We are ahead of schedule, under budget and the scientific team under Dr. Blair really has a grasp on the science, which has made this entire process so much simpler, what else can you ask for."
Once the critical Process Engineering (FEL 1 & 2) is complete in Q4 2015 and the focus turns to local site prep the Company can start to collect on its signed $25 million territory license agreement and would expect to start collecting royalties form multiple licensees by mid summer 2016.
