1 1 An Integrated, Collaborative, Sustainable GREEN RESOURCES COMMUNITY January 2013 Update

2 One Year Later Waste-to-Resource Community to Green Resources Community Enabled through collaboration and collective thinking 3 Phases of Waste-to-Resource have meshed – some aspects in phases have accelerated

3 3 Phase 1 Regulatory Approval – 10 T/d Solid Waste, 4000 L/d Waste Cooking Oil Bio Diesel plant onsite at landfill Gasifier/Generator - 80-90% of equipment required is sourced or procured by vendor Green House - Awarded in Fall Startup Spring 2013 Waste-to-Resource Update

4 4 Waste-to-Resource Economics

5 Waste-to-Resource Relativity April 2011 Bloomberg Article: Waste Management Inc. landfilled 92 million tons of trash in 2011 This tonnage was worth $12.3 billion to landfill it. This same tonnage is worth $40 billion if converted to energy “We don’t think the future, long term, is going to be continuing to put everything in the landfill. Its going to be recovering more value from this material. The customers will demand it, the struggle for resources will demand it, and quite honestly, economically, it’s the thing we should be doing.” Carl Rush, Sr. VP, Waste Management Inc.
