Joule Unlimited awards EPCM contract to Fluor for solar fuels demo plant

Fluor Corporation was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract by Joule Unlimited, Inc., to design and build a biofuels demonstration facility in New Mexico. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the fourth quarter of 2011.

The facility is intended to scale up a pilot process currently producing liquid fuels via Joule’s novel technology, which leverages highly engineered photosynthetic organisms to catalyze the conversion of sunlight and CO2 to fuels and chemicals.

Fluor’s Greenville, S.C. office is leading the EPCM services project. Engineering, procurement and site mobilization is currently under way.
