Silverado Green Fuel contracts with architectural engineering firm Pickering for design of lignite coal-water fuel plant in Mississippi


    FAIRBANKS, AK and VANCOUVER, Aug. 16 /CNW/ - Silverado announced today
that it has contracted with Pickering, Inc. of Jackson, Mississippi, to
provide complete architectural and engineering plans for construction of
Silverado's lignite water fuel (LWF) demonstration facility. The facility will
be located on a 14-acre site already designated in the Red Hills Ecoplex
outside Ackerman, MS.
    "We're excited about this opportunity," said Pickering principal and
senior project manager Thomas R. McConnell. "It's not every day that we design
a coal-water fuel facility. When the demonstration plant is operational, we
hope also to be involved when Silverado scales up to a full production
    Pickering will provide detailed architectural and engineering
construction plans for the building, including electrical, mechanical and
structural designs for the LWF production and boiler test facility. In
addition to the demonstration plant, plans will be conceived and delivered for
the laboratory center and offices, storage tanks and the coal loading
facility. Pickering, under previous agreement, provided Silverado the
conceptual design for the LWF facility and laboratory.
    "We have been working with Pickering since the conception of this project
and are delighted to take this next step with them," said Silverado Green Fuel
president Garry Anselmo. "This will be the first plant in North America
entirely dedicated to producing lignite water fuel as a petroleum fuel
substitute, and this is the first step."
