Environmental Clean Technologies (ASX:ESI) has commissioned and completed the upgrade to its Bacchus Marsh high volume test facility.
Environmental Clean Technologies completes facility upgrade
Shares in Environmental Clean Technologies are up 50% over the past six months.

The activities at the test facility are linked to preparations for a demonstration plant in India.

The company is developing a unique, low-cost method to dewater brown coal and transform this abundant, but widely unusable, resource into a black coal equivalent.

Based on research initially conducted by CRA and University of Melbourne in the early 1980s, the technology – Coldry – is a patented process that changes the naturally porous form of brown coal.

The mechanically simple Coldry process produces a feedstock in the form of densified pellets that are stable, easily stored, can be transported and are of similar energy value to many black coals, whilst significantly reducing emissions compared to its original brown coal form.

The now completed Coldry pilot plant upgrade delivers high volume test capability of up to 15,000 tonnes per annum and improved operation range, capability and flexibility for research and development purposes.

The increase doubles previous capacity and reduces the cost of running tests to the extent that product can be sold into the Victorian market.

The ensuing test program will focus on the assessment and validation of various new parameters enabled by the upgrade.

Shares in Environmental Clean Technologies are trading up 50% over the past six months, currently priced at $0.017.
