In the first quarter of 2009 GreatPoint Energy finished construction of a dedicated $40 million feedstock testing facility, the Mayflower Clean Energy Center, in Somerset, Massachusetts. The purpose of the facility is to enable the screening of a wide range of potential feedstock and to continue the investigation of process improvement opportunities.
Through construction, commissioning, and operations, the safety of our people, of our community and of the environment is our top priority. GreatPoint Energy worked closely with state and local officials to site and permit the facility and will continue to work in a collaborative and constructive manner with officials, regulators and community leaders. We are committed to contributing positively to the health and well-being of the community of which we are a part and look forward to helping to grow and enrich the Somerset area.
