·     CITRA will be responsible for obtaining the permits, licences and authorisations ("PLA"), Power Purchase Agreements ("PPA") and Feedstock Agreements for the 12 MWe Project

·     CITRA intends to contract EQTEC to execute the works in accordance with a quotation which EQTEC has supplied to CITRA which is to be finalised immediately after the PPA has been obtained by CITRA. The scope of supply of EQTEC will include two complete gasification lines with 4,5 tons per hour feeding rate each, four GE Jenbacher syngas engines, ancillary equipment as well as commissioning and start-up services.

CITRA is working towards obtaining the licences, permits and concessions for a 12MWe Integrated Gasification to IC Engines Power Plant ("IWGPP"), which will use biochar briquettes as feedstock ("the Project").  Biochar is a solid material which will be produced by CITRA from municipal solid waste. In addition, feedstock agreements will incorporate EQTEC's specification for refuse derived fuel ("RDF"). RDF is a fuel produced from various types of wastes such as MSW, industrial wastes or commercial wastes and is the primary feedstock for EQTEC's UK project pipeline.


Luis Sanchez, CEO of EQTEC plc, commented: "We are delighted that our technology has been selected, on an exclusive basis, by CITRA for its 12MWe power plant. The MOU formalizes the first step towards what can become a fruitful relationship with CITRA and ties in with our strategy of looking for opportunities to utilise EQTEC Gasifier Technology, directly or through EPC contractors, in the UK and across the globe. We look forward to working together on this exciting project which has the potential to deliver significant benefits to both CITRA and EQTEC."
