1 Seneca Meadows: The First Landfill Gas-to- Vehicle Fuel Project in New York State Richard M. DiGia President EIF Renewable Energy Holdings Novi, MI - Oakfield, NY The Power of Waste: Renewable Natural Gas for Long Island October 14,

2 Landfill Gas to Energy EIF Renewable Energy Holdings Types of Recovery Projects Facilities in US Re-Emergence of Pipeline Quality Gas or Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) Projects 2

3 EIF Renewable Energy Holdings Own and/or operate one of the largest LFG portfolios in the US 265 MWe of base load renewable energy – 38 Renewable Power Projects – 6 Renewable Natural Gas Projects – 13 projects in New York 4 facilities qualified to produce RNG 3

16 RNG Math Four Facilities – NY, OH, KS, OK Combined Production Capacity – 11,000 MMBtu/Day MMBtu to GGE of CNG = 12.98* 142,780 GGE per day Annually displaces 52 million gallons of gasoline Annual reduction of 124 million tons of CO2 emissions* from gasoline * Based on USEPA conversion factors 16

17 RNG Math Seneca New York Facility Production Capacity – 2,000 MMBtu/Day 25,960 GGE per day The average convenience store sells 4,000 gallons of gasoline per day * 6 ½ average stations to sell output from Seneca based on gasoline sales Access to national pipeline network mandatory to move production to markets * Based on NACS bulletin 17
