Fluor to Design New Mexico Renewable Fuel Plant - top government contractors - best government contracting eventFluor Corp. won a contract with energy technology producer Joule Unlimited to design a renewable fuel production facility in New Mexico.

The Irving, Texas-based construction firm said Saturday it will design and build the plant under an engineering, procurement and construction management services contract.

The facility is intended to test and scale up liquid fuel production processes with energy conversion technology.

The Cambridge, Mass.-based firm’s technology uses sunlight to convert waste carbon dioxide into chemical products including liquid hydrocarbons and ethanol.

Fluor said its Greenville, S.C. office will head the services project.

The Navy is in the process of purchasing $12 million worth of biofuels made from cooking oil and non-food-grade animal fats.

The Navy, the departments of Agriculture and Energy and the private sector formed a three-year partnership in August to study biofuels.
