The CLEARgen site


The location of the CLEARgen site is in Martinique, oversea territory of France. This territory is part of France and Europe and so it follows of regulation and rules of Europe.

The limited company of the Antilles refinery, abbreviated SARA, is a company that owns a refinery in Martinique, as well as hydrocarbon deposits in Guadeloupe and Guyana: http://www.sara-antilles-guyane.com/energies-nouvelles/ 

The refinery is generating a large amount of by-product hydrogen and is investing in renewable energy projects such as solar, bioethanol, green water and large battery bank.

SARA employs 260 people on Martinique, Guadeloupe and Guyanne and more than 200 of them are located on the site of the refinery.

SARA had just created a new department in charge of new energy projects. Several projects have already been launched as, for example, the solar power plant close to the refinery or reverse osmosis to desalination treatment of the water. The department is led by Henri Roche and Frederic Ferrer who are the contact point for the CLEARgen project.
