First unit construction begins in Denver, Colo.

According to a Friday telephone interview with Nathaniel Energy's CEO Stan Abrams, the first Co-Generation Unit (Heat and Power) should begin construction in 30 days at an undisclosed site in Denver, Colo.

The Co-Generation unit and others like it are supposed to be used at the old helium plant four miles northeast of Keyes.

Abrams ambitious plans include a green house and ethanol plants most of which would be powered by the incineration of old tires.

Asked about where the future plant was in the permitting process, Abrams answered that the permitting was still in the planning stage since the exact process of the plant hadn't been established .“But, we'll probably go after the tire permits pretty quick,” Abrams added.
