California, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] BlueFire Ethanol Fuels, Inc. has retained Brinderson as its engineering, procurement and construction contractor for BlueFire’s Lancaster biorefinery in Los Angeles County, California. The 3.1 million gallon per year cellulosic ethanol facility will be built in a joint effort with MECS and Brinderson.
Brinderson will provide the detailed engineering and construction, while MECS will provide the front-end engineering, design package and expertise in the sulfuric acid industry. The Lancaster biorefinery will be the first commercial scale roll-out of BlueFire Ethanol’s concentrated acid hydrolysis process.
“BlueFire has assessed the design and construction industry for a suitable partner to integrate into our deployment plan for our biorefineries,” said Arnold Klann, President and CEO of BlueFire. ”It was obvious that Brinderson complements the capabilities of MECS and brings final engineering and construction services to our team.”
