"The North Fork project is such an important one for the local community, for California and for EQTEC. The plant at North Fork will receive forestry waste that could otherwise fuel fires, instead using it as fuel for electricity to the local community and biochar for other local applications, all produced in an efficient and environmentally friendly way. Production of biochar and the benefits of forest and watershed protection, carbon sequestration and soil enrichment will be a first for us, yet one for which we are seeing growing demand. EQTEC is committed to completing this plant and to building more such plants throughout California, with North Fork as a reference. We are encouraged by the State's commitment to clean energy and to technologies such as ours that support wildfire prevention through safe and sustainable elimination of forestry waste. Our priority now is collaborating with our partners and the project delivery team to complete construction and commissioning of the plant at North Fork and then ensure its successful start into live operation."
