Abengoa Gets $200 Million From Fulcrum for Waste-to-Fuel Plant

(Bloomberg) — Abengoa SA, the Spanish renewable-energy
developer, won a $200 million contract from Fulcrum BioEnergy
Inc. to build a waste-to-fuel refinery in Nevada.

The plant, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) east of Reno,
will use gasification technology to convert municipal solid
waste into synthetic crude that’s used in jet fuel, Seville,
Spain-based Abengoa said Tuesday in a statement.

The plant will be designed to produce more than 10 million
gallons (38 million liters) of biofuel annually and will be the
first of its kind in the U.S., according to the statement.
