MIAMI, Aug. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of the effort to decarbonize the world economy, the Anglo American Barro Alto industrial complex in Brazil will implement eCombustible Energy's 100% carbon-free fuel and cost-competitive hydrogen energy technology this year with details of the project to be presented at the 2022 Annual Conference of Metallurgists in Montréal, QC August 21-24, 2022.
Daniel Brosig, Paykan Safe, and Matthew Russell of GCT Engineering Inc. will present a paper at the Conference overviewing the implementation of eCombustible's technology to deliver hydrogen-based fuel for thermal applications. eCombustible uses patented technology to generate a customizable hydrogen-based fuel from a process consisting of a water electrolyzer followed by a magnetic reactor. This technology alleviates the need to rely on fossil fuels (specifically Liquified Petroleum Gas at Barro Alto) and dramatically reduces carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in thermal applications.
According to Jorge Arevalo, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of eCombustible, "We are committed to creating a paradigm shift to a more sustainable world and the Barro Alto project is a significant step forward toward that goal. This will be our third project, all under long-term contract, to come online and we are encouraged by Anglo American's interest in additional locations. We applaud them for their extraordinary vision to revolutionize their operations for the well-being of the planet."
Highlights from the paper ? titled Implementation of Novel eCombustible Technology at the Anglo American Barro Alto Smelter ? include:
eCombustible Energy offers a long-term fuel supply solution that is designed to provide the world's most fossil-fuel dependent industries with a fuel that is carbon-free, cost-competitive, and requires little to no modification to existing customer equipment. The efficacy of its hydrogen-based fuel, eCombustible, has been validated through testing and independent assessments by third-party engineering firms.

About the Anglo American Barro Alto industrial complex
Barro Alto is a nickel-producing mine and processing plant, built at a capital cost of $1.9 billion and commissioned in 2011. It is located in the State of Goiás in Brazil, about 170km north-west of Brasilia. At Barro Alto, ore is heated to extremely high temperatures in two 185 metre rotary kilns, a process called calcining, which removes moisture and water crystals from the nickel bearing ore to start the metallurgical process. The Barro Alto nickel ore deposit was discovered in the late 1960s and Anglo American completed its purchase of the deposit for $35 million in 2002. Mining of nickel ore in Barro Alto began in 2004, initially transporting the nickel to the Codemin plant for processing before the Barro Alto plant was built.
