IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation announced that it was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) contract by Joule Unlimited Inc, to design and build a biofuel demonstration facility in New Mexico. The facility is intended to scale up a pilot process currently producing liquid fuels via Joule’s novel technology, which uses sunlight to convert proprietary organisms and carbon dioxide into liquid hydrocarbons and ethanol. “We fully expect to demonstrate the high efficiencies and commercial viability of our process, which will further enhance Joule’s leadership position in the biofuel industry,” said Bill Sims, President and CEO, Joule Unlimited.
