Fluor awarded renewable fuel plant contract by Joule

IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation announced that it was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management contract by Joule to design and build a renewable fuel production facility in New Mexico. The facility is intended to test and scale up a process for the commercial production of liquid fuels via Joule’s novel technology, which uses sunlight to convert industrial waste carbon dioxide into liquid hydrocarbons, ethanol or chemical products.

“We look forward for completion and start-up of this facility as the first phase of our commercialization efforts. We fully expect to demonstrate the high efficiencies and commercial viability of our process, which, due to its modularity, can readily scale without the cost of feedstock constraints of biofuels, and ultimately lead to sustainable, localized fuel production around the world,” said William J Sims, President and CEO, Joule.
