Slide1:  June 12th 2006 Renewable Fuels Summit Maurice Hladik, Director of Marketing, Iogen Corporation Who is Iogen?:  Who is Iogen? Headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, Iogen Corporation is a leading industrial biotechnology company specializing in cellulose-based enzyme technology Iogen operates the world’s largest pre-commercial cellulose ethanol facility Production of cellulose ethanol commenced in April 2004 The leading firm in cellulose ethanol :  The leading firm in cellulose ethanol A pioneer in making ethanol from “biomass” Active since the late 1970’s $110+ million spent in development A world leader in the field Two $7 million cellulose ethanol pilot operations World’s largest cellulose ethanol ($30 million) demonstration plant Leading-edge commercial enzyme manufacturing Private and Public Partnerships $20+ million from Petro-Canada $15 million from the Government of Canada January 2006 announcement with Volkswagen for cooperation in Germany April 2006, $26 million investment by Goldman Sachs Major strategic partnership with Shell Shell investment in Iogen:  Shell investment in Iogen Iogen identified as world leader in cellulose ethanol $60 million investment in Iogen announced since May, 2002 Intended to speed development of world’s first commercial plant Offers potential commercial plant investor and ethanol off-take customer Demo plant: Cellulose ethanol production:  Demo plant: Cellulose ethanol production Cellulose ethanol production currently using wheat straw (also designed for corn stover and other agricultural residues/dedicated crops) Continuous operation April 21, 2004: First commercial shipment to Petro-Canada’s Montreal refinery Customers to include: Oil companies Government vehicle fleets Iogen enzyme and cellulose ethanol facility:  Iogen enzyme and cellulose ethanol facility Front end hammermilling of wheat straw :  Front end hammermilling of wheat straw One of two 52,000 gallon enzyme fermenters:  One of two 52,000 gallon enzyme fermenters Overlooking array of 33,000 gallon storage tanks:  Overlooking array of 33,000 gallon storage tanks Lignin separation filter presses:  Lignin separation filter presses Iogen cellulose ethanol fuels G8 leaders’ vehicles Gleneagles, Scotland, July 2005:  Iogen cellulose ethanol fuels G8 leaders’ vehicles Gleneagles, Scotland, July 2005 States capable of supporting a cellulose ethanol industry :  States capable of supporting a cellulose ethanol industry Slide14:  DOE & USDA – Biomass availability Slide15:  DOE & USDA - Resolving energy security From the DOE/USDA April 2005 Billion Ton Study “The purpose of this report is to determine whether the land resources of the United States are capable of producing a sustainable supply of biomass sufficient to displace 30% of the country’s present petroleum consumption (i.e. 60 billion gallons per year) … 1 billion dry tons of biomass feedstock per year The short answer to the question … is yes.” Switchgrass Today:  Switchgrass Today Field yield = 5 tons of dry matter per acre Cellulose ethanol yield = 80 gallons per ton Value of switchgrass in the windrow = $15 per ton (based on straw price) Yield to farmer = $75 per acre in the windrow Switchgrass Future:  Switchgrass Future Field yield = 10 tons of dry matter per acre Cellulose ethanol yield = 100 gallons per ton Value of switchgrass in the windrow = $25 per ton Extra 20 gallon yield returns $0.50 per gallon to the farmer Yield to farmer = $250 per acre in the windrow Resolving energy security:  Resolving energy security “Keeping America competitive requires affordable energy. Here we have a serious problem: America is addicted to oil, which is often imported from unstable parts of the world. We will also fund additional research in cutting-edge methods of producing ethanol, not just from corn but from wood chips, stalks, or switch grass. Our goal is to make this new kind of ethanol practical and competitive within six years. Breakthroughs on this and other new technologies will help us reach another great goal: to replace more than 75 percent of our oil imports from the Middle East by 2025.” President Bush, Jan. 31 State of the Union Address Benefits to agriculture:  Puts $ in farmer’s pockets A billion tons of feedstock would supply one thousand – 80 million gallon plants. Anticipated agriculture revenue per plant is $40 million for a total of $40 billion additional farm income. By comparison, both corn and soybean have a total annual crop value of $20 billion each. Makes agriculture a major energy player. Benefits to agriculture Benefits to rural communities:  Keeps jobs on the farm and in the community Each plant creates 180 direct jobs from skilled labour through technicians to scientists and engineers. Each plant also creates 1,000 construction jobs over two years, and an estimated 450 permanent spin-off jobs. Total increased rural employment is approximately 600,000 permanent jobs, plus one million construction jobs over the next few decades.

Assessment of Net Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from Ethanol-Blended Gasolines in Canada: Lignocellulosic Feedstocks. Estimate computed assuming a 39% reduction in GHG emissions compared to petrol. Slide22:  This private sector driven initiative could place the US ahead of Kyoto signatories on CO2 reduction. Benefits to the environment – The global picture The US Energy Bill has aggressive targets for cellulose ethanol:  The US Energy Bill has aggressive targets for cellulose ethanol A 7.5 billion gallon “renewable fuels standard” with a 2.5:1 trading ratio for cellulose ethanol A 250 million gallon minimum annual required volume of cellulose ethanol beginning in 2013 A one billion gallon per year target for cellulose ethanol production in 2015, backed by: A $1 billion loan guarantee program. 80% non-recourse loan guarantee for first four plants Maximum $250 million per plant GOAL: To move the EP Act/05 authorization forward quickly by partnering with the US government.
