The Kittyhawk project is a 2.5MW biomass fueled power generating facility, with additional bio-fuel production from recovered water and CO2. The facility design was permitted and built in the middle of a commercial business park. Kittyhawk sets the stage for many additional environmentally friendly facilities to be developed and financed.

Anthony Arand, founder, chairman and CEO of Envirepel Energy, said: “By ensuring that the facility doesn’t give off any significant amounts of pollution, EEI has shown that we can obtain very difficult permits where others cannot. I’m very happy to announce that we plan to have our team back to work by the middle of next month, so that we can complete commercial operations of the power plant and the initial bio-fuel production by the 4th quarter of this year.

“If our CO2 recovery and bio-fuel production technology is successful, then potentially 5% or more of the nation’s energy needs could be produced with our process from our country’s post recycled landfill waste supply.”

Over the past six years, EEI has designed, developed, manufactured and built the low emission combustion system. This low combustion system consumes urban waste that will normally go in a landfill, and has also the capacity to consume sulfur coal, tires, animal waste and many other biomass feed stocks.

The company has over 300MW of projects in various stages of development in San Diego and Imperial counties. These project sites include business parks, rural agricultural areas and metropolitan landfill sites.
