Reached financial close
The project is in the construction phase
Site update - July 2021: The first of three planned batches of EQTEC equipment has been manufactured, shipped and received on site, on time, with the remaining two shipments on track. The feedstock line is expected to be commissioned and operational this month
Background information: With a 3,800 metric tonnes capacity per year, this gasification plant will take a mix of waste by-products from regional farmers during three harvest seasons of corn, wheat and cotton. Currently these materials are either incinerated or taken to landfill but once this project is commissioned, the waste will be formed into pellets, processed through EQTEC’s gasifier and converted into electricity which will be sold to the country’s grid system by the owner-operator, Agrigas Energy. This project will be Greece’s first ever advanced gasification plant and is one of a number of potential opportunities across Greece that have been identified with our joint venture partners, ewerGy, who are the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) partner at Agrigas 1.
