Four Rivers (Operating as Verta Energy) Provides Details of its Integrated Waste-to-Energy Strategy

LONDON, Feb. 9 /CNW/ - Four Rivers BioEnergy Inc. (OCTBB: FRBE & OTCQB: FRBE) Issued a letter to shareholders earlier this week from its Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Padgett, providing a quarterly update report on progress around the Company's UK Waste-to-Energy project, which is entering into the final stages of pre-production development.

Highlights of the letter are included below and the letter in its entirety has been posted to the Company's web-site under the Corporate Presentations section (

In his letter, Mr. Padgett sets out, in more detail than hitherto, some key areas of the Company's strategy and encourages readers to visit the Company's web site where a new updated Corporate Presentation has been posted.

He explains that a key part of this strategy is to vertically integrate into the waste liquid biomass supply chain and he summarises the multiple strategies that are being pursued here, including potential merger with or acquisition of existing feedstock handling companies.

He goes on to explain how Verta will expand its capability in pre-processing this waste biomass to make it suitable as a viable feedstock. An important aspect of the Company's UK plant is its expertise, capability and capacity for handling, pre-treating, blending and storing waste liquid biomass.

The letter also summarises progress being made towards generating renewable electricity at the Company's UK site. It also sets out the Company's strategy to create optionality in revenue generation, through being able to produce a choice of (a) renewable electricity to be sold directly into the grid via sub-stations already on the site and/or (b) renewable bio-diesel (which it would sell through its off-take contract with BP), both from the processed waste liquid biomass feedstock.
