Minto-Grand Lake Complex
Start Date: 2010-03-12
End Date: 2011-03-12
The project is to deploy the technology of mild coal gasification at the Grand Lake Generating Station of the New Brunswick Power Corporation, located at Minto, New Brunswick. The process utilizes the proprietary technology of ESI Ecosystem International Ltd. (“ESI”), which combines gasification of coal for use as a fuel in a combustion turbine with the production of clean char that can be used directly to enrich the coal fuel in the existing power plant. A significant benefit of the utilization of coal in this way is the substantial reduction of atmospheric emissions that results. In this way, ESI seeks to enhance upon the naturally occurring coal resources, the infrastructure currently in place, and the availability of appropriately skilled and experienced personnel of the Minto-Chipman area of New Brunswick, and at the same time contribution towards the Province’s continuing efforts to reduce atmospheric contaminants including Green House Gas (“GHG”) emissions.
