1 SamoaFiber Bio Fuel Concepts March 2007

2 Introduction Technology exists and is producing low cost alternative fuels from biomass. Technology exists and is producing low cost alternative fuels from biomass. To create a larger scale success, a low cost rapidly growing raw material is needed to supply this existing technology. To create a larger scale success, a low cost rapidly growing raw material is needed to supply this existing technology. SamoaFiber is the catalyst necessary to transform technical successes into large scale supplies of bio-oil for energy and other uses. SamoaFiber is the catalyst necessary to transform technical successes into large scale supplies of bio-oil for energy and other uses. The combination of SamoaFiber and Fast Pyrolysis produces a bio-oil that can either be used directly as a primary fuel or co-fired alongside coal, natural gas or oil in a power boiler.

3 Introduction Continued $50 million is being sought to ramp-up the production of renewable SamoaFiber BioFuels (SFB). $50 million is being sought to ramp-up the production of renewable SamoaFiber BioFuels (SFB). SFB combines the use of a ligno cellulosic crop with fast pyrolysis processing to create the lowest cost, highest energy yield per hectare cellulosic crude available. SFB combines the use of a ligno cellulosic crop with fast pyrolysis processing to create the lowest cost, highest energy yield per hectare cellulosic crude available. This cellulosic crude can be delivered to the rapidly growing energy, gasification, ethanol and chemical markets anywhere in the world. This cellulosic crude can be delivered to the rapidly growing energy, gasification, ethanol and chemical markets anywhere in the world. Follow on rounds will be used for the installation of additional processing plants and plantations on a global basis to support the growing demand for alternative fuels.

4 SamoaFiber Features SamoaFiber (SF ) ( Gynerium Sagitattum ), a member of the grass family grows in the wild in Peru and can be grown on plantations. SamoaFiber (SF ) ( Gynerium Sagitattum ), a member of the grass family grows in the wild in Peru and can be grown on plantations. SF has the same energy characteristics as wood but SF produces 4 times more per hectare than does the fastest growing wood. SF has the same energy characteristics as wood but SF produces 4 times more per hectare than does the fastest growing wood. SF can produce 5,000 dry metric tons per year per square kilometer, which is up to 12 times more than other energy crops or agricultural waste material. SF can produce 5,000 dry metric tons per year per square kilometer, which is up to 12 times more than other energy crops or agricultural waste material. SF can be harvested year-round eliminating storage issues as is the case with agricultural crops. SF can be harvested year-round eliminating storage issues as is the case with agricultural crops. SF does not require subsidies to be competitive with any other biofuel offerings. SF does not require subsidies to be competitive with any other biofuel offerings.

12 Fast Pyrolysis Background Fast Pyrolysis (FP) is uniquely suited to process very fast growing SF into a low cost cellulosic crude oil to supply the gasification market. Fast Pyrolysis (FP) is uniquely suited to process very fast growing SF into a low cost cellulosic crude oil to supply the gasification market. FP breaks down cellulose into useful carbon containing compounds in a very cost effective manner. FP breaks down cellulose into useful carbon containing compounds in a very cost effective manner. FP is a proven process that will extract a bio-oil from SF that has the same energy content as low grade coal. FP is a proven process that will extract a bio-oil from SF that has the same energy content as low grade coal. Bio-oil has approximately the same consistency as crude oil and is easily transported via tank truck or large tanker ships. Bio-oil has approximately the same consistency as crude oil and is easily transported via tank truck or large tanker ships. FP units are relatively inexpensive and can be installed adjacent to SF plantations. FP units are relatively inexpensive and can be installed adjacent to SF plantations.
