HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 12/02/13 -- Global Clean Energy, Inc. (OTC PINK: GCEI) believes that Halifax Nova Scotia may well be the first location for the company's Waste Plastics to Fuel Plant. This facility, in addition to GCE's planned PGM metal recovery in the Northeast US and Anaerobic Digestion in upstate NY, will make up 3 of the 4 planned sites in 2014.
This comes after spending time in Halifax meeting with a number of government representatives and private sector recyclers, when Brian Levine COO of Global Clean Energy stated, "We were well received by many arms of the government." He then added, "In addition to finding the correct industry partners in Nova ReNew Inc., throughout our stay it became clear that the effective landfill diversion practices of the province, the city and its citizens, have afforded the GCE and Nova ReNew excellent conditions for implementation of a Plastics to Fuel system."
Buoyed by the new Nova Scotia Government's Throne Speech on Thursday, wherein Premier Stephen MacNeil spoke words of encouragement to our venture, saying, "Beyond transparency, our government is working to create a competitive economic environment focused on growing good, sustainable jobs."
Levine said, "Nova Scotia is ready to move up another step in the waste recovery supply chain because of its practices... it has effectively facilitated feedstock opportunities which present another good reason to set up a showcase system with Nova ReNew in Nova Scotia on a proper site."
Wayne Adams, Director of Nova ReNew Inc and former Environment Minister stated, "We believe the timing for this industry in Nova Scotia is right for several reasons." He says, "One good reason is the 'Green Fence Policy' of China where that national government is limiting waste imports after being a global buyer of waste plastics for years. In addition, Nova Scotians expect their recycling discipline, amongst the best in North America to benefit their own communities. Some of that feedstock can stay home and be diverted to the Plastics to Fuel facility being developed as it is an environmentally clean operation and together with the Province's Solid Waste Management Policies, can move us closer to an Environmental Centre of Excellence."
In addition to their Halifax visit, the Global Clean Energy team completed a 5 day 6 stop trip to the UK and Italy. The trip was to confirm agreements and verify technologies in advance of ordering systems. Steven Mann, Chief Development Officer of the Company, stated, "Europe was a huge success and completely supported our revenue and development objectives. The European recovery market is a decade ahead of North America. Technology groups constantly remarked how strategic the GCE approach is for North America and in particular our feedstock and site control. Partnering with technology and operations groups, while always controlling sites and feedstock, was heralded by European industry experts as the only way to go."
