LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Jan 8, 2013) - Methes Energies International Ltd. (NASDAQ: MEIL), a renewable energy company that offers an array of products and services to biodiesel fuel producers, announces that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Methes Energies Canada Inc., has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with U.S. Energy Initiatives Corp. of Santa Clarita, California (a public company traded under the symbol (PINKSHEETS: USEI)) to initially acquire, among other things, one of our Denami 600 biodiesel processors.
U.S. Energy Initiatives plans to set up its first 1.3 million gallons per year (mgy) production facility in California and use the site as a showcase to market and promote our Denami 600 and Denami 3000 biodiesel processors. Our Denami 600 processors and Denami 3000 processors, respectively, have a maximum rated biodiesel production capacity of 1.3 mgy and 6.5 mgy. The intent is to eventually set up additional facilities in California and across the U.S. as close as possible to feedstock supplies in order to minimize transportation and logistics.
"Our goal is to build a strong biodiesel division using a technology that is already proven and reliable," said U.S. Energy Initiatives CEO, Anthony Miller. "The Methes business model is truly unique and does not only focus on technology, but also on all of the aspects of biodiesel production and distribution, including product quality, compliance, production, marketing and logistics. Methes' experience and track record are two strong assets to us that we intend to make the most of."
Nicholas Ng, President of Methes Energies, said, "We look forward to working with Anthony and his team. They have a comprehensive understanding of biodiesel and a plan to take advantage of the growing demand. With the $1.00 per gallon tax credit back in the U.S., we expect a strong 2013 and beyond."
