Cirque Energy to Develop Biomass Waste to Energy Unit in Texas

Cirque Energy Inc. has an agreement to develop a 2.5-megawatt biomass gasification power plant in Midland, Texas.

The Detroit-based Cirque said in a news release it signed an agreement for the project, which will be developed in conjunction with ReCom Operating Partners, a Midland urban wood waste recovery and recycling operation.

Cirque Energy will install, operate and maintain the plant, which it expects to be operational by the end of the 2015 first quarter.

The facility, the Midland Biomass Energy Station, will sell the renewable energy through the utility market under a multi-year power purchase agreement.

Cirque Energy is partnering with Northrop Grumman Corp. to develop a deployable gasification unit that can use solid waste to provide fuel or supplement traditional fuels used to generate combined heat and power.
