Lipten to Increase Efficiency of 63 MW Cogeneration Facility

Lipten announced today that it has secured an engineering, procurement and construction contract for efficiency upgrades at a 63MW cogeneration facility. The project involves installing a new condensing economizer to recover flue gas heat at the outlet of an existing Once Through Steam Generator (OTSG). The OTSG generates steam utilizing the exhaust gas from a 38 MW GE Frame 6B gas turbine. The cogeneration facility is owned and operated by Primary Energy Recycling Corporation (TSX: PRI). The CHP facility supplies 100% of the thermal energy needs and a significant portion of the electrical energy needs of Primary Energy’s host portside steel mill.

"This may be the first application in the world to utilize both a steam generator and condensing economizer on 38 MW GE Frame 6B Gas Turbine," said James Spencer, president and CEO of Lipten, “Lipten’s experience with custom engineering of energy systems will be extremely valuable in the success of this important project.” John Ingraham, Proposal Development Manager at Lipten Company, added, “The heat recovery from this project will offset up to 70,000 lbs/hr of steam generation. This means less fuel is used for steam generation equating to significantly reduced operating costs and lower emissions. This project represents an excellent example of Lipten’s core focus of creating value for our customers and helping them deliver on their commitments to shareholders.”

About Primary Energy Recycling Corporation:
Primary Energy Recycling Corporation owns a majority interest in Primary Energy Recycling Holdings LLC ("PERH"). PERH, headquartered in Oak Brook, Illinois, indirectly owns and operates four recycled energy projects and a 50 percent interest in a pulverized coal facility (collectively, the "Projects").
