Refill Energy, Inc. acquires International Green N-ergy and Commercial Downdraft Gasifier

22 February 2010 - Refill Energy, Inc. said it has completed the acquisition of International Green N-ergy Corporation (IGNC) of Salt Lake City, Utah. As a result of the acquisition, Refill Energy acquired IGNC's Downdraft Gasification Module fabricated by Petersen Inc. of Ogden Utah.

Refill Energy's patented Downdraft Gasification technology is designed to convert carbon-based feedstock either solid or liquid, such as municipal solid waste (MSW), coal, sewage sludge, agriculture waste and carcasses to a flexible combination of electricity, steam, ethanol, fuels, chemicals and hydrogen. For each ton of Feedstock, the Refill Energy technologies have the potential to produce approximately 1+ MWh of electricity, or 100 Gallons (+/-) of useable fuels.

Refill Energy's unique Gasifier produces a Synthesis gas made up primarily of Hydrogen and Carbon Monoxide. The Syn-Gas may be used in an Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) to create electricity or be converted by a Catalytic Slurry Cyclone Reactor into liquid fuels (Dimethyl Ether, Ethanol, Gasoline, Jet Fuel or Diesel Fuel). The Dimethyl Ether (DME) like Syn-gas can be converted to several different products, depending on the catalyst used.
