HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo., Jan. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Advanced Emissions Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADES) (the "Company" or "ADES") today announced that Tinuum Group, LLC ("Tinuum Group"), a joint venture among the Company's subsidiary ADA-ES, Inc., an affiliate of NexGen Resources Corporation, and an affiliate of The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc., has completed a transaction for an additional Refined Coal ("RC") facility. The RC facility is located at a coal plant that has historically burned in excess of 3.5 million tons of coal per year and is royalty bearing to ADES.  With this addition, Tinuum Group has 20 invested facilities in full-time operation.

L. Heath Sampson, President and CEO of ADES, commented, “Our ongoing commitment to support Tinuum, in the effort to secure tax equity investors for the remaining idle RC facilities continues to progress. This closure marks the third monetization of a facility previously entered into the engineering and construction phase, validating Tinuum's strategic decision made last year to take those preemptive steps in anticipation of future closures. We remain committed to helping advance discussions with tax equity investors to both help utilities meet their emissions targets as well as maximize distributable cash flows and shareholder value."
