Collaboration with Anaergia Inc. for EPC and O&M at Southport Project

EQTEC plc (AIM: EQT), a world-leading technology innovation company enabling the Net Zero Future through advanced solutions for hydrogen, biofuels, SNG and other energy production , is pleased to announce that, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Southport WTV Limited, and its partners Rotunda Group Limited ("Rotunda") and Rotunda's subsidiary, Shankley Biogas Limited (the "Project SPV"), the Project SPV has entered into a co-operation agreement (the "Agreement") with Anaergia Inc. ("Anaergia") for construction and operation of a multi-technology, waste-to-energy facility at Southport Hybrid Energy Park, Merseyside, UK (the "Plant").

The Plant includes an Anaergia waste processing facility that will accept 80,000 tonnes of pre-processed municipal solid waste ("MSW") waste per year to both recover organics produce refused-derived fuel ("RDF") as well as an Anaergia anaerobic digestion facility that is designed to convert the recovered organics into six million cubic metres of biomethane per year, to be injected into the national gas transmission system. Through combined heat and power ("CHP") engines, the Plant will also pull gas from the grid to generate 9MWe for export to the national electricity transmission system. The Plant design also includes a 2MW battery storage facility.

Under the Agreement, Anaergia are to undertake a full Engineering, Procurement & Construction ("EPC") role for the Plant based on a fixed price, lump sum contract for the capital works scope as well as a separate, minimum five-year contract to Operate & Maintain ("O&M") the Plant. The establishment of these two key relationships-for the EPC for the Project and for the O&M for the Plant-is critical for completing development and moving into the next phase of the Project.

The Company, which is leading development of the Plant, intends in a future phase of work, subject to planning, to add EQTEC Advanced Gasification Technology that could convert 25,000 tonnes of RDF per year, supplied by the Plant's waste processing facility, into an estimated 2.5 - 3.0MWe of clean electricity. The Company is further exploring the option of producing clean hydrogen at the Plant, by applying its own synthesis gas ("syngas") technology together with syngas-to-hydrogen technology provided by a technology partner.

Together, the full Plant facilities are expected to export to the grid the equivalent of 20% or more of Southport's energy requirement.

David Palumbo, CEO, EQTEC, commented:

"Anaergia has been a great partner at our Deeside project, and we are very happy to be co-developing Southport with them as well. We are even happier they are bringing their EPC and O&M capabilities to the Project, to complement their world-class technologies. The future of renewable energy beyond fossil fuels will be a mixed economy, and the Deeside and Southport plants will demonstrate that. These projects are at the cutting edge of clean, waste-to-energy and hydrogen innovation in the UK. We look forward to these and future opportunities with Anaergia to demonstrate successful, sustainable cleantech in practice."

Simon Christian, MD of Anaergia UK, commented:

"Anaergia are excited to be involved in another opportunity to combine Anaergia's industry-leading organics recovery capabilities with EQTEC's advanced gasification expertise on the Southport project. The MSW "Fines" (or "Trommel Fines") that this facility will process are a huge challenge to the UK waste industry, but Anaergia's unique processing technologies - particularly the OREX(TM) extrusion press - mean organics can be recovered from this difficult material and converted into useful resources."

Further information about the Project

EQTEC is co-developer and gasification technology provider to the Project, working in partnership with Rotunda Group and its subsidiary Shankley Biogas at Watts Industrial Estate, Southport Hybrid Energy Park, Crowland Street, Southport, Merseyside, UK. In September 2021, the Company entered into a conditional Share Purchase Agreement to acquire full ownership of Shankley Biogas and the Project from Rotunda.

A forthcoming, additional permission would create the potential for development of an enhanced waste-to-energy solution applying EQTEC Advanced Gasification Technology to the Project. Further, and as announced on 01 February 2022, the Company and Rotunda are assessing the potential for a third phase to the Project, that would deploy an additional, and potentially larger gasification facility near the current Southport site.

EQTEC expects to act as the Project developer for all aspects of the Southport project, providing the design and core Advanced Gasification Technology and retaining a portion of the O&M contract upon commissioning. As the Project matures toward financial close, the Company intends to sell a majority equity position on the Project SPV and invoice that SPV for development services provided.

The Project will directly address the challenges of waste reduction and the need for clean energy, while also creating local jobs.

This announcement contains inside information as defined in Article 7 of the EU Market Abuse Regulation No 596/2014, as it forms part of United Kingdom domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, as amended, and has been announced in accordance with the Company's obligations under Article 17 of that Regulation.
