TSX - NRG

OTCQX - ANRGF

CALGARY, Nov. 23, 2011 /CNW/ - Alter NRG Corp.  ("Alter NRG" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received notification  of  a proposed agreement (the "Agreement") to be finalized by the middle of December for Alter to be the selected provider for the engineering, fabrication and construction of a plasma gasifier for installation at the proposed Tees Valley Renewable Energy Facility (the "Project") in Northeast England.

The Agreement, when finalized, will include standard cancellation provisions that can be triggered if the project owner chooses to cancel the proposed project at any time during the term of the contract.

Under the proposed Agreement, Alter NRG will provide a G65 gasifier and related engineering and project management services for a fixed price of approximately $22 million.  Alter NRG expects to realize about 90% of the revenue within fifteen months of the Agreement being signed.  Once the proposed Agreement is signed, Alter NRG will commence immediately the final engineering and fabrication of the plasma gasifier and related equipment.

Kevin Bolin, Chairman of Alter NRG, states, "Signing this contract will be a watershed moment for Alter NRG.  This agreement represents the first sale of our largest plasma gasifier, the G65.  Having a prestigious customer choose our technology provides further credibility to our product offerings.  As well, the Tees Valley plant would provide Alter NRG a fifth reference plant and our first in Europe."
