EESTECH (EESH.OB) with facilities in Queensland, Australia is set to benefit
from the strategic Licensing Agreement recently signed between HTC Canada,
Doosan Babcock Energy, UK and Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction of South
This agreement will further advance HTC as a world leader in the development and
deployment of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies, increasing the
project development capabilities and opportunities for EESTECH.

by HTC and the University of Regina, together they will jointly advance the
large-scale integration of CO2 Capture with existing, new coal and gas fired
EESTECH owns the Australian developed Hybrid Coalmine Gas Technology (HCGT),
which can be integrated with HTC's 'CCS' technology. A standard EESTECH HCGT
project utilises waste coal and methane to produce cost effective clean coal
energy, significantly reducing the cost of carbon capture and as a result of the
waste to energy process, generates up to 1 million tons of carbon abatement
credits per year.
"This agreement is seen as a significant milestone for EESTECH, bringing both
the world's best CCS technologies from HTC and the engineering/ construction
capabilities of Doosan Babcock, to further enable EESTECH's development of CCS
and HCGT projects,” said Mr Murray Bailey, CEO of EESTECH.
