1 Year End Review January, 2015

2 Project Update Columbia Pulp has had an eventful and productive year.
We opened our office on Main Street in September and currently staff it M-F, 9 to 4. We will soon be opening a testing laboratory in Dayton. Learn more at

3 Project Update Employing 135 full time workers, the site is located on 449 acres along the Snake River with natural gas, existing electrical supply and rail capability on State Hwy 261. We expect to have our groundbreaking in early 2015 with the facility start-up approximately a year later.

4 Plant Location / Site Overview
and then, this is what it will look like…. The target site (the top picture is how it looks today) is between the town of Starbuck and the Lyons Ferry Bridge in the center of one of the densest concentration of farming in North America. The Company will draw supply from a 75-mile radius to the site.

5 View of Proposed Plant Looking West

6 Market & Sales Strategy
Pulp Targeting the Pacific Northwest paper producers, Columbia will sell unbleached, semi-bleached and possibly bleached pulp primarily as a replacement for hardwood pulp. Its straw pulp is a unique product with a number of competitive advantages. Derivative Products The company is evaluating several options to create a value-added revenue stream from the remaining materials. Readily available markets which have been identified include animal feed enhancement and refining into mixed glycols. It can also be sold as a petrochemical replacement for end uses such as soil enhancements, energy generation, and as a “green” replacement for petrochemical phenolics.

7 Potential Uses for Columbia Pulp

8 Milestones Columbia Pulp has a multi-phase construction and development plan to minimize risk.
