National Clean Fuels (NACF) has signed a term sheet with the Center for Environment, Commerce & Energy (CECE) to jointly build a biomass-to-electricity (BTE) plant in Port Gibson, Mississippi.

CECE, a private interest group that promotes and develops efficient use of natural resources, will assist NACF in the planning and implementation of the BTE project, which calls for the new plant to generate electricity by gasifying sawdust and woodchips to power a turbine.

National Clean Fuels will provide CECE with monthly payments in exchange for a percentage of the BTE project’s net profits for a duration that will be over several years from the date the biomass power generator becomes operational.

Currently, NACF and CECE are working to finalize an interconnection agreement with local providers that will allow the BTE generation facility to redistribute energy along the Port Gibson-area power grid.
