Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) September 27, 2013
Toyo Thai-USA Corporation (TTUS) will start construction next week on the largest commercial carbon capture and utilization plant in the U.S. Toyo Thai-USA, the Denver-based American subsidiary of international EPC specialist, Toyo-Thai Corporation Public Company Limited (TTCL), will construct the Capitol SkyMine® plant for Skyonic Corporation at a cement factory in San Antonio, Texas. This unique plant will capture carbon dioxide, acid gases and heavy metals from flue gas at the cement plant, before converting them into solid products, such as baking soda, hydrochloric acid and bleach, which can be sold.
This is TTUS’s first project in the U.S. as a full EPC provider. “We are excited to be showcasing our expertise in the international energy arena by providing EPC services to the SkyMine plant,” said Toyo-Thai Corporation PCL President & CEO, Hironobu Iriya. “We look forward to ramping up our presence in the United States in the months and years ahead and we are particularly interested in securing partners who share our embrace of new environmental technologies and cutting-edge renewable energy.”
Iriya said that SkyMine technology has huge implications for clean energy in lieu of the U.S. government’s recent announcement that it would press ahead with enacting the first federal carbon limits on the nation’s power companies. “We are particularly determined to show that this plant can be built on time and under budget, and that the SkyMine technology works, on a commercial scale, the way it is designed to,” he added.
Iriya is a guest of Skyonic Corporation President & CEO, Joe Jones, who is hosting a groundbreaking ceremony for the SkyMine facility September 30 in San Antonio.
In addition to providing EPC services, Toyo-Thai has also invested $1 million in Skyonic to support the project.
