Grön Fuels’ $9.2 Billion Carbon Negative Renewable Fuel Complex Achieves Major Milestone with Air Permit Approval

BATON ROUGE, La., April 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Fidelis Infrastructure, LP and the Baton Rouge Area Chamber are pleased to announce on Earth Day 2021 a major milestone in the development of a $9.2 billion carbon negative renewable fuel complex at the Port of Greater Baton Rouge: Fidelis’ portfolio company, Grön Fuels, LLC, has received its Minor Source Air Permit from the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality.

The first phase of the multiphase, multiyear program is the 63,000-barrel-per-day Grön Fuels production facility that Fidelis expects will achieve final investment decision in 2021. The total complex is projected to result in more than 5,000 direct and indirect quality jobs and be implemented over an approximate ten-year period. The facility will produce green hydrogen, renewable diesel, arctic spec renewable diesel, sustainable aviation fuels and bio-plastic feedstocks. Through Capio Sequestration, LLC, another Fidelis portfolio company, tens of millions of tons of biogenic CO2will be captured and sequestered over the life of the plant to create a carbon negative enterprise, which has the net impact of removing CO2 from the atmosphere – reversing climate change, rather than simply slowing it.

“We are grateful to the state and local leadership, our partners, customers and service providers for the positive support as we achieve this major milestone,” said Bengt Jarlsjo, COO, partner, president and co-founder of Fidelis Infrastructure, LP. 

Dan Shapiro, CEO, managing partner and co-founder of Fidelis, added, “Receiving the Minor Source Air Permit from the DEQ as we celebrate Earth Day 2021 and successfully rise above the pandemic is symbolic and meaningful for all involved in what is designed to be a fully integrated carbon-negative enterprise.”

Situated strategically at the crossroads of rail, deep water ports, the Mississippi River and national pipeline connectivity, the Grön Fuels complex will leverage a strong local workforce as global markets continue to increase demand for low carbon energy, materials and consumer goods.

“This world-class facility will establish Baton Rouge as a leader in renewable energy, and today, we are one step closer to making it a reality,” said Adam Knapp, president and CEO of the Baton Rouge Area Chamber. “Combining positive environmental impact with transformative economic growth, the Grön Fuels investment will put our region on the map as a model for sustainability and innovation in the energy industry.”

About Fidelis Infrastructure, LP: Fidelis Infrastructure, LP is a Houston-based independent infrastructure fund management firm focused on investments in high demand renewable, transitioning energy, sustainability, and digital infrastructure sectors in North America.  The Fidelis management team has extensive experience in structuring, developing and delivering new-build infrastructure in its core sectors.  The team’s experience includes project and corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, project development, engineering, construction, and project management. www.fidelisinfra.com

1 Biogenic CO2, as opposed to fossil-based CO2, is CO2 produced from biogenic sources that recently captured atmospheric CO2 through the process of photosynthesis and are used to produce bio-based fuels and products.  The capture and sequestration of Biogenic CO2 in the production of renewable fuels and materials therefore is equivalent to the capture and sequestration of atmospheric CO2.  The removal of CO2 present in the atmosphere through a combination of photosynthesis, renewable energy production and biogenic carbon capture and sequestration (“BCCS”) therefore has the effect of reversing the primary cause of climate change – the current levels of CO2 in the atmosphere are reduced by removing CO2 from the atmosphere through BCCS.

Auf dem Forum zum China Corporate Brand Building, das am 10. Mai stattfand, erklärte Herr Zhang Yuzhuo in seiner Grundsatzrede, dass Sinopec den Aufbau einer unabhängigen Marke von Weltrang beschleunigen wird, um die qualitativ hochwertige Entwicklung des Unternehmens besser zu unterstützen.

Die Produktionskapazitäten in China wachsen und entwickeln sich weiter, es ist eine starke Vitalität und Kreativität zu beobachten und die Zahl der chinesischen Marken, die ins Ausland expandieren, steigt.

Seit 38 Jahren legt Sinopec den Schwerpunkt auf die Stärkung seiner Marke und verpflichtet sich, seinen Kunden sauberere, hochwertigere und vielfältigere Energie- und Chemieprodukte anzubieten. Sinopec erfüllt seine Markenversprechen mit konkreten Handlungen und Verantwortungsbewusstsein und wird weiterhin die Bedürfnisse der Menschen nach einem besseren Leben erfüllen und den Markenwert, den Ruf und den Einfluss des Unternehmens fördern.

„Sinopec wird den Aufbau einer Weltklasse-Marke vorantreiben und sich dabei an sein Markenversprechen ‘Innovation leads the future of the industry, creating better life with responsibility’ halten sowie den Markenslogan ‘Cleaner Energy, Better Life’ im Bewusstsein seiner Kunden verankern und als verantwortungsbewusstes internationales Unternehmen in Tausende von Haushalten einziehen”, sagte Zhang Yuzhuo, Vorsitzender von Sinopec.

In Zukunft wird Sinopec die Markenstrategie energisch umsetzen und seine Markenaussagen „quality is always one step ahead” („Qualität ist immer einen Schritt voraus”) und „every drop of oil is a promise” („jeder Tropfen Öl ist ein Versprechen”) fest etablieren, um Sinopecs Engagement für Qualität zu unterstreichen und die Vitalität der Marke zu stärken. Geleitet durch eine weltweit führende Entwicklungsstrategie wird Sinopec sein Betriebsmanagement stärken und beschleunigen, um die Popularität der Marke zu erhöhen.

Daher fördert es die Beschleunigung einer grünen und kohlenstoffarmen Entwicklung und saubere fossile Energie. Es skaliert nicht-fossile Energie und kohlenstoffarme Produktionsprozesse, um sicherzustellen, dass es den Höhepunkt seiner Kohlenstoffemissionen schneller als in Chinas Zielvorgaben erreicht und strebt an, bis 2050 kohlenstoffneutral zu werden.

Im Rahmen seiner Unternehmensverantwortung fördert Sinopec Schlüsselprojekte wie die ländliche Revitalisierung, die Olympischen Winterspiele 2022 in Peking, die Initiative zur Gesundheitsförderung, bietet Tage der offenen Tür und kostenloses Tanken für Arbeiter im Gesundheitswesen und mehr. Damit will es den Einfluss der Marke erhöhen, und die Marke Sinopec mit dem Schlüsselwort „Unternehmensverantwortung” assoziieren.

USW Delivers More than 1,150 Petition Signatures Urging HCL to Bargain in Good Faith with Tech Workers at Google Contractor

Avatar

Published

on

PITTSBURGH, May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The United Steelworkers (USW) union today delivered a petition signed by 1,156 individuals to tech contractor HCL America Inc., when the two sides met for negotiations.

An overwhelming majority of bargaining unit members at HCL signed the petition calling for the company to negotiate in good faith for a fair first contract for workers who first voted in favor of joining the USW in 2019.

Among those who signed the petition were also 342 self-identified tech workers; 91 self-identified Google or Alphabet employees; and others who indicated that they work for Apple, Bandcamp, Carnegie Mellon University, Glitch, The University of Pittsburgh, Work Hard Digital and elsewhere.

“HCL’s attempts to drag out this process, outsource our work and break our resolve over the course of this process demonstrates just how much we need union representation and a fair contract,” said Stefan Sidelnick, a senior analyst at HCL for more than five years. “It’s heartening to see so many of our fellow tech workers support us as we continue our push for a voice on the job.”

In October 2020, after nearly a year of negotiations, Region 6 of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a consolidated complaint against HCL, whose employees work side-by-side with those at Google, alleging many unlawful actions.

The NLRB’s complaint outlined HCL’s failure to bargain in good faith with the union representing its employees, including failing to provide information needed for bargaining and unilaterally implementing changes to working conditions.

Most egregiously, the NLRB complaint alleges that HCL has been eroding its Pittsburgh workforce by moving work done here to its facility in Krakow, Poland, to retaliate against workers for exercising their right to choose union representation.

“We appreciate all the community support we’ve received as we work toward a fair contract,” Sidelnick said. “We hope that HCL listens to all these voices and reconsiders its tactics moving forward.”

The USW represents about 850,000 North American workers in a variety of industries such as steel, aluminum and other metals; pulp and paper; tires and rubber; chemicals; energy producing; oil refining; healthcare; the service and public sectors; and a growing number in professional, tech and academic fields.

NEW ORLEANS, May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Entergy Corporation (NYSE: ETR) today announced the creation of a new sustainable planning, development and operations organization under the leadership of Pete Norgeot, currently senior vice president, transformation, to drive greater strategic direction and collaboration in addressing the sustainability expectations of stakeholders and advancing the aspirations of the business. The new organization will realign key internal teams to work collectively to implement strategies to decarbonize Entergy’s portfolio and expand environmentally conscious practices while maintaining affordability and reliability for customers.

“We are excited about the opportunity ahead for this new organization to build on our construction project successes and become a world-class developer of renewable energy and other clean energy solutions for our customers,” said Leo Denault, chairman and CEO of Entergy Corporation. “Pete will work closely with our new customer organization, which will be led by David Ellis, to ensure we deliver a full range of solutions that help our customers achieve their goals.”

In this new leadership role, Norgeot, who will continue to serve as a member of the Office of the Chief Executive, will report to Paul Hinnenkamp, executive vice president and chief operations officer. The new organization will be composed of system planning and operations, led by Jason Reynolds; enterprise planning, led by Elizabeth Adams; and a new power development group to be led by Jonathan Long, which will be responsible for building internal capabilities to establish a robust pipeline of renewable energy projects that will help Entergy achieve its sustainability objectives.

Gary Dickens, currently vice president, project construction, will succeed Long as vice president of capital projects.

Current teams within Norgeot’s former transformation organization including commercial operations, technology and nuclear decommissioning, will now report within the finance organization, led by Drew Marsh, executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Building on the recent announcement of the appointment of Ellis as Entergy’s first chief customer officer, the company also announced the realignment of multiple internal teams to Ellis’ new integrated customer organization.

KeyString Labs, the company’s innovation center that leads efforts to understand customer frictions and bring to market new products and services that meet their needs, will move from the former transformation organization to the new integrated customer organization. Some of KSL’s near-term focus areas include:

  • Electric Mobility (e.g., electric vehicles chargers, EV fleets, electric transportation enablement).
  • Low-Carbon Generation (e.g., extending low-carbon energy generation opportunities to make it possible for our customers, businesses and communities to create energy in a cleaner way, together).
  • Beneficial Electrification (e.g., adding electric options for our customers to simultaneously reach sustainability goals and reduce their operations costs).

Additionally, teams leading efforts to create extraordinary customer experiences in their current daily interactions with the business, which include the customer experience team and utility sales and development services, will move within the new customer organization.

All organizational realignment moves are effective May 16.

Working with our regulators and stakeholders, Entergy is transforming its power generation portfolio in a responsible way that balances reliability, affordability and environmental stewardship.
