W2 Energy Through Its European JV Partner W2H Luxembourg Holdings SA And EGM World LLC Sign Agreement For Joint Venture With BCL Limited Joint Venture To Develop The Petrochemical Industry In Botswana For African Market
GUELPH, Ontario, June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- W2 Energy, Inc. (OTC: WTWO) is pleased to announce that its Joint Venture Partner W2H Luxembourg Holdings SA and EGM World LLC has signed an Agreement with BCL Limited (BCL) based in Botswana, Africa.
The Agreement calls for a Joint Venture (JV) between the parties in order to develop the legal, financial, technical framework, and feasibility studies for the exclusive development of a Petrochemical Industry in Botswana, Africa.
The Agreement also calls for the immediate development and implementation of a Coal/Waste to Liquid (CTL) prototype plant capable of producing 10ton/day coal/waste synthetic fuel production in Selebi-Phikwe.
Upon the completion of the CTL technology project and a feasibility study made on the prototype plant, plans are for the successful development of a comprehensive marketing plan that will encompass all forms of energy produced from a full scale petrochemical plant in Africa.
Additionally, after the formation of the JV Company, the partners will begin with EGM fuel tests on the BCL fleet. The test goal is to reduce BCL fuel purchases from wholesalers by up to 50% utilizing EGM's "Enhanced Fuel Refinery System" developed in Germany and funded by the Royal Group of Abu Dhabi and the Matt Lamb Foundation. This technology employs a proprietary "Vortex Systems" within an ultrasonic cavitation chamber to perform molecular bounding in order to produce a high quality/ultra-low emission fuel. Upon the successful completion of the tests, the partners plan to market and sell fuel on a wholesale basis through long term contracts in Botswana and the rest of Africa, which will justify financing for a full scale petroleum plant.
Under terms of the Agreement, BCL has granted W2H and EGM the exclusive rights in the outlined territory for the business and has agreed to sign a Power/Fuel Purchase Agreement for power and fuel produced by the prototype plant.
BCL shall also supply coal, waste water and other raw materials to the CTL project.
Karl Neubacher, Chairman of W2H Luxembourg SA, stated, "BCL is the biggest employer in Botswana with close to 5000 employees. They are also the highest energy consumer in the country. The Botswana Government currently owns a 93% stake in BCL and has the best educated engineers in the region." He also stated, "BCL has all the resources needed for the successful completion in establishing a successful Petrochemical Industry in Botswana with 8 Million Liters of Fuel production per day. We are very happy that BCL decided to choose our CTL technology over the well established CTL technology from SASOL in South Africa."
