MINNEAPOLIS, February 16, 2011 – Bixby Energy Systems, a company developing and commercializing clean coal technologies, has shipped its second coal-to-gas devolitization system to China. 

This second unit is bound for a central China province, where it will produce natural gas and carbon for sale to the market.  The system, which should be operational by the end of March, will also serve as a demonstration facility to educate additional prospects and customers throughout China and Mongolia about Bixby’s technology and will allow them to see it operating firsthand. 

“Shipping and establishing this unit as a showpiece will support Global Partners United in its work to identify additional customers in China,” said Robert Walker, chairman, CEO and president of Bixby Energy Systems.  “Equally as important, this milestone also represents significant strategic value both inside China and in the rest of the world in terms of demonstrating our technology’s utility and further establishing our credibility in the market.”

The first customer that the new unit will supply is an industrial facility located nearby the facility. Bixby is the innovator of the Bixby Process™, a  revolutionary method of  efficiently converting coal into clean-burning energy.
 
About The Bixby Process
The Bixby Process currently features a system called devolitization that superheats coal without burning it in a sealed environment which prevents carbon emissions from being emitted into the air. This separates the coal into clean synthetic natural gas and semi-activated carbon without the heavy carbon emissions normally associated with current coal burning or other gasification technologies.  The technology does not consume water (although it does use it), and creates no effluent or waste byproducts as a result of the process other than natural gas and semi-activated carbon.
