BioCube™ field trials commence



The BioCube™ has successfully undergone extensive factory testing at The

Biofuel Partnerships Research and Development Centre and is now being

shipped to Papua New Guinea for field trials.


“We’re delighted with the performance of the machine in our testing facilities,”

said Sandy Kelly, Technical Director and founding father of the BioCube™. 


“After successfully satisfying the stringent Australian Health and Safety

standards we’ve been improving the machine with design modifications that

improve the quality of biodiesel produced, the ease of operation and reliability

as we move towards our manufacturing model. The BioCube™ is now

producing consistently high quality biodiesel at the required volumes.”


Comprehensive field trials will be conducted in a location nearby Lae in Papua

New Guinea over the next 6-10 weeks. 


The site was selected after an extensive review of locations.


“We were looking for a site that could provide us with both coconut and

jatropha feedstock, and that presented a testing challenge for the BioCube

that reflects the reality of the logistical, technical and operational challenges

encountered in most developing markets.”  Mr Kelly continued.


The Biofuel Partnership will have an on-the-ground presence for the

beginning of the field trial and will oversee a daily reporting process on the

performance of the machine.


“Through these trials we will ensure that our manufactured units meet our

demanding reliability and efficiency standards”, said Chairman, John

Edwards.


With field trials due to be completed by the end of the year, first manufactured

units of the BioCube are scheduled for delivery by end Q1 2010.
