GEORGETOWN, SC -- (Marketwire) -- 05/27/11 -- Coastal Capital Acquisition Corp. (PINKSHEETS: CCAJ) announced that it has formed a limited liability company for the purposes of entering into a joint venture agreement with WRW Holdings, LLC. The joint venture will develop an alternative waste-to-energy micro bio-refinery in North Charleston, SC. The refinery is designed to produce approximately 2.0 million gallons of drop-in green diesel per annum along with 200.0k gallons of drop-in green gasoline. The project is projected to cost $9.9 million and will be financed with a traditional lender and an equity infusion by the joint venture partner.
Aventura Equities, Inc.'s (PINKSHEETS: AVNE) subsidiary Renewed World Energies, Inc. will provide the algae bio-reactor component of the refinery. Aventura will also provide the project and operational management of the project. CCAJ is a majority owned subsidiary of Aventura.
"This is the first of several joint ventures we are currently working on in Coastal," stated Rick Armstrong, the new Chief Executive Officer of Coastal Capital. "We believe that we are developing the first near-zero emission micro bio-refinery that produces drop-transportation fuels and is profitable immediately with no government grant assistance necessary." Mr. Armstrong further stated that, "We believe our business model is sound and that we can replicate these waste-to-energy micro refineries and place them in communities across the United States. We have identified the site in North Charleston, the waste feedstock necessary and the ultimate customer of the fuels."
The North Charleston refinery project is expected to employ 50-100 people during its eight month construction period and permanently employ 15-20 people.
