Reactors Successfully Delivered to Lumberton Site in the U.S.


Active Energy, the London quoted renewable energy and forestry management company focussed on biomass, is pleased to announce that following the Company's announcement of 4 June 2019, its reactors have been successfully delivered to its industrial site in Lumberton, Robeson County, North Carolina ('Lumberton' or 'the Project'). 


Lumberton is being developed to be the Company's first permanent production facility for CoalSwitch™, its proprietary technology that transforms low-cost biomass material into high-value green fuels, and to serve as the primary base for all its biomass fuel operations in the U.S. 


The Company is now making rapid progress advancing construction of its new CoalSwitch™ operation at Lumberton, with construction of the 5 tonne per hour plant to commence and engineering crews arriving within the month.

Further Details

Lumberton is strategically located close to AEG's joint venture partner Georgia Renewable Power LLC ("GRP") and is also in the heart of the lumber production region in North America. The fully permitted facility includes up to 415,000 sq ft of covered factory space, circa 151 acres of surrounding land, as well as ancillary facilities, such as water treatment, an analysis lab, offices and IT hardware.  Lumberton is also located close to the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, which the Directors believe will be advantageous for the Company as it seeks to generate regular sales of its products to Western Europe and South East Asia.


The Directors believe that the size of Lumberton will ensure significant scope for the expansion of the initial CoalSwitch™ plant via the addition of extra CoalSwitch™ production facilities targeting capacity of up to 500,000 tonnes per annum during 2021. Furthermore, the Directors expect that AEG will benefit from complementary biomass, saw logging and other commercial revenue opportunities in the Lumberton area.
