Refill Energy, Navajo Nation meet to address cleaner power from coal

Source: Refill Energy, Inc.

Refill Energy, Inc. (Pink Sheets: REFG), a Salt Lake City-based green energy technology firm that converts bio-mass into synthesis gas, announced that in September, 2010, Refill Energy, met with Navajo Nation Council members at tribal headquarters in Window Rock, Arizona, to discuss Refill's patented gasification technology and its potential for generating "clean electricity" from Navajo Reservation coal deposits. 

The Navajo Nation has immediate need of a cleaner coal-to-electricity conversion method – one that meets updated customer requirements for environmental quality. Presently, the Navajo Nation produces electricity from local coal reserves for sale to the State of California. Current coal conversion processes failed to meet California's high environmental standards and now threaten substantial income loss for the Navajo Nation. Refill Energy offers the Navajo energy program a high-tech solution. Refill's proprietary downdraft gasification technology provides a cleaner solution – producing electricity from coal without the harmful emissions and ecological issues routinely associated with coal-conversion. Refill Energy's gasification technology exceeds California's stringent environmental laws for air and water quality and is now under review by Navajo leadership. 

Refill Energy representatives have scheduled an October 4th meeting with Petersen, Inc., manufacturer of the Refill gasification modules, to discuss Navajo production of electricity and fuels into the coming century. Petersen, Inc. has extensive experience in the coal industry.
