EnerTech Environmental, Inc. announced today that it has signed an Expression of Interest to build a SlurryCarb™ demonstration facility at Masdar City in Abu Dhabi. Masdar City will be the world's first zero-carbon, zero-waste, car-free city, completely powered by renewable energy.

EnerTech's SlurryCarb™ demonstration facility will process biosolids (sewage sludge) produced from the permanent buildings erected during Masdar City's first phase as well as from the accommodation for the several thousand workers building Masdar City between 2008 and 2016. Biosolids from the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, the workers' accommodation, and the headquarters of Masdar will be converted into renewable E-fuel, a fossil fuel replacement. The demonstration facility is the first step towards installing a permanent SlurryCarb™ facility in the city.

"This is an opportunity to showcase the SlurryCarb™ process to the Middle East and work with the international community to build a city that truly embodies sustainable living and working," said Kevin Bolin, EnerTech CEO. "It showcases the SlurryCarb™ process as the best available biosolids technology when it comes to sustainability, renewable energy, and the reduction of greenhouse gases."

Masdar is Abu Dhabi's multi-faceted, multi-billion dollar investment in the development and commercialization of advanced and innovative technologies in renewable, alternative and sustainable energies as well as green design. By applying scale and leveraging Abu Dhabi's low-cost, tax-free manufacturing base, businesses will enjoy significant competitive advantages, allowing them to compete internationally and provide significant diversification to the Abu Dhabi economy. On February 9, 2008, Masdar broke ground for Masdar City.

The city will serve as a global model for designing and constructing environmentally sustainable real estate development. A city for the future, Masdar City will leverage the most innovative technologies around the world in beneficial reuse, sustainable practices, and energy efficiency. The city is being built in the heart of Abu Dhabi.

EnerTech Environmental is part of a select group of leading global companies that have been invested in by Masdar through the Masdar Clean Tech Fund. The Clean Tech Fund focuses on the development and commercialization of technologies in renewable energy, energy efficiency, carbon management and monetization, water usage, and desalination.

One of the key objectives of the Fund is to accelerate the adoption and development of renewable and alternative energy technologies.

"Investing in EnerTech Environmental is a key part of the overall Masdar ambition," said Alex O'Cinneide, Partner at Masdar Clean Tech Fund. "Their innovative technology is the kind of smart clean technology that has the potential to alter the way developers consider future projects."
