All rights reserved. 4 Edmonton Plant (2010) A Model for Urban Centers 25-year contract between City of Edmonton and Enerkem/GreenField Ethanol 100,000 tons / yr of sorted municipal solid waste will be diverted from landfill. Edmonton will achieve 90% waste diversion rate. Enerkem and GreenField Ethanol will build, own and operate the plant Will initially produce 10.4 million gallons of ethanol per year Phase 1 construction starting in 2009. Operations start-up at the end of 2010.

Confidential © Enerkem 2008. All rights reserved. 8 Types of Biomass: Cost vs Homogeneity High/Medium grade homogeneous biomass: $$$ Forest, plantations, crops Residual biomass: $$ Forest and agricultural residues Residues from process industries Such residues can be chemically quasi- homogeneous (i.e. from a single species) or non-homogeneous (i.e. biomass from mixed species) Urban biomass: -$ RDF from MSW (typically > 50 wt% biomass) Construction / Demolition wood Sludge or wet bio-solids such feedstock is chemically non-homogeneous (obtained from WWT, manures, and meat processing plants)
