Carbon Capture Technology Demonstration to Utilize InVerde e+

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - August 22, 2017) - Tecogen® Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN), a clean energy technology company, is pleased to announce the sale of two InVerde e+ units that will power a demonstration project of an advanced carbon capture technology. The units will provide the necessary electricity and process heat required by the technology. The project will be co-located on the site of a major food and beverage manufacturing company, which will utilize the captured CO2 in its products.

Alton Reich of Streamline Automation, the company that's been hired to develop the project, said, "We are excited to employ Tecogen's InVerde e+ for this project. Tecogen's microgrid technology will enable us to optimize power generation to match the project's varying electricity needs."

"While only a one-off proof-of-concept project for now," said Tecogen Product Manager Stephen Lafaille, "the potential application is substantial. We are excited to work with Alton and his team. The InVerde e+ provides the operational flexibility necessary to make this a success. While this project seeks to capture CO2 directly from the air, the technology has the potential to capture CO2 from anthropogenic sources as well."

Tecogen Co-CEO Benjamin Locke stated, "This is a rare opportunity. While the owners of the core technology are undertaking other tests that are wholly independent of this particular project, we believe Tecogen's highly efficient and compact InVerde e+ units provide an elegant solution to provide the technology with the power and heat it needs to function optimally. It's a win-win. InVerde has exhibited a strong track record of off-grid operation thanks in large part to its exclusive microgrid technology and black-start capability. This opens up enormous potential both in terms of how it can be utilized and where it can be located."
