GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., July 15, 2020 (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 leased an additional Refined Coal ("RC") facility to an existing RC investor. The RC facility is located at a coal plant that has historically burned approximately 2.0 million tons of coal per year. With this addition, Tinuum Group has 21 invested facilities in full-time operation.

Greg Marken, Interim CEO of ADES, commented, "We are pleased to have completed the lease of an RC facility to an existing investor and proud to continue to help power utilities and investors achieve their emission reduction requirements and business goals. While the tonnage burned at this facility is lower than previous invested facilities, this invested facility helps offset reductions in coal burn that have occurred due to reductions in electricity demand. Tinuum, with support from ADES and Tinuum’s other owners, is diligently focused on maximizing business results for the remainder of the refined coal tax credit period."
