Novera Energy Ltd

Defra contract signed

Novera Energy Ltd
15 November 2005

                                                            ASX/AIM ANNOUNCEMENT

16 November 2005

         Planning Application submitted for Sustainable Energy Facility
                             DEFRA contract signed

Novera Energy Limited (ASX: NVE; AIM: NVE) announces that it has submitted the
planning application for its East London Sustainable Energy Facility.

Novera Energy is proposing a new process to generate renewable energy using fuel
made from household waste left after recycling. The project is part of the
Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs ('DEFRA') New Technology
Demonstrator Programme, which seeks innovative ways of reducing the amount of
biodegradable waste sent to landfill.

The project, proposed to be sited on land at Ford Motor Company Limited's
complex at Dagenham, East London, is expected to generate sufficient renewable
electricity to supply the equivalent of over 10,000 homes, using the Enerkem
process developed in Canada for which Novera is the exclusive licensee in the

Novera Energy and DEFRA have also completed negotiations and signed the
development agreement under which DEFRA will purchase a £5m demonstration period
(covering permitting, commissioning and operation) investigating the performance
of the Sustainable Energy Facility for diverting biodegradable municipal solid
waste from landfill.   After the demonstration period Novera will continue to
operate the Facility on commercial terms.

Novera Energy Project Manager, John Howson, said:

'Our project seeks to address the key environmental and technological challenges
of reducing landfill and generating more renewable energy.'

Mr Howson also said this was just the start of the process, with Havering
Council now considering the complete Environmental Statement prepared by Novera
and submitted along with the planning application.

'The planning process is complex and the London Borough of Havering will
undertake its own formal consultation on the proposals.    We expect the
application to be fully scrutinised before a decision is made.'

If planning permission is granted, Novera aims to achieve financial close mid
2006 and begin production 18-24 months thereafter.


Notes for Editors:

  • More information on the proposal can be found by clicking on
  • Novera will submit an Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC)
    application to the Environment Agency shortly.

  • A site has been identified and discussions with Ford Motor Company Limited 
    are underway to secure the site.  Novera Energy and Ford are also in
    discussion about the Sustainable Energy Facility supplying renewable energy 
    to Ford.

  • Defra's New Technology Demonstrator Programme is providing £30m funding to
    a range of projects to support the development of technologies which will
    help to divert biodegradable waste away from landfill. The programme will
    demonstrate the technical, commercial and social viability of particular
    technologies, providing impartial environmental, economic and technical
    information to stakeholders and decision makers.

  • The Sustainable Energy Facility will be supplied with around 13 tonnes per
    hour of biomass fuel, equating to around 70,000-90,000 tonnes a year.

  • The Sustainable Energy Facility will use gasification technology, a
    process by which a biomass fuel (in this case produced from household 
    organic waste) is treated at a controlled temperature (to around 800 
    degrees Celsius) to produce a synthetic gas which is then cleaned and used 
    to fuel a standard steam-cycle turbine electricity generator.  The gas is 
    cleaned to a similar standard as natural gas.

  • The Sustainable Energy Facility will be capable of generating around
    10MW of sustainable energy (64% of which is classified as renewable).

  • The objectives of the Defra demonstration project are to demonstrate at a 
    commercial and economic scale the ability to gasify solid residues from
    municipal waste in order to:

      o  divert biodegradable municipal solid waste away from landfill in
         accordance with UK commitments to Article 5 of the EU Landfill 

      o  provide DEFRA with the basis for a full publicised research and
         development project on this particular technology and to assess its 
         potential for replication within other local authority waste management 

      o  produce clean renewable energy; and

      o  increase resource recovery from waste
