LAKE MARY, Fla., May 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Renewable fuels provider New Generation Biofuels Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: NGBF) today announced that it has signed a contract with the City of Baltimore, Maryland,("the City") to provide its renewable biofuel in an evaluation program for boiler applications in the heart of Baltimore. This is the first time the City of Baltimore has evaluated a non fossil fuel in its industrial boilers.
In this program, New Generation Biofuels will sell the City biofuel for evaluation in various city municipal buildings. The outcome of the evaluation is expected to further validate New Generation Biofuels' product as a renewable biofuel which uniquely offers NOx and SO2 reductions as compared to traditional distillate products and provide a platform for the City of Baltimore to expand its RFP definitions to include alternative technology biofuels such as New Generation Biofuels in future tender submissions.
"We are enthusiastic to be working with the City of Baltimore on this evaluation program," said New Generation Biofuels' Chief Executive Officer, Cary Claiborne. "The City of Baltimore understands the importance of a sustainable biofuel to reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions and the importance of using a clean, efficient fuel." Mr. Claiborne continued, "In addition, our biofuel can be used as a 100 percent fuel switch with minimal modification to a customer's equipment."
Department of Public Works (DPW) Energy Advisor Ted Atwood stated, "The Energy Office is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to reduce and save on energy costs in sustainable ways that will benefit our City now and into the future. To that end, I am eager to start the evaluation phase."
