Their engineering and operations resources will support this facility through planning, permitting, startup, operations and maintaining operations.  Their connections to the Biomass Energy market are substantial, and they have leveraged their network to bring us customer interest from the United States and Europe, as well as working to negotiate and secure these customer agreements for our future production capacity.
