Sierra Energy Update

Sierra Energy is working diligently to commercialize our waste gasification technology. During the past six months we have expanded our team hiring a financial analyst, a chemical engineer, a marketing director, and working with several consultants. Plus we are actively building professional and technical partnerships to increase our expertise and technical capabilities.
 
In August, Sierra Energy’s president Mike Hart was recognized by the White House as a “Champion of Change” and featured Sierra Energy on the White House blog. The U.S. Small Business Administration website also made a nice mention of Sierra Energy in their blog post “Mentoring Green Startups and Creating Jobs“.
 
Sierra Energy’s development team is busy optimizing and preparing our Mk4 demonstration gasifier for crucial testing campaigns, planned for completion by the end of 2011. The development team has licensed Chemstation’s ChemCAD software for complex chemical process modeling of the gasifier, downstream processes, and ‘balance-of-plant’. The team has also licensed AzeoTech’s DAQFactory to gather precise measurement data in real time.
