1 1 | Golden Field U.S. Department of Energy Overview of DOE Biomass/Biofuels Initiatives

2 2 | Golden Field Sustainable Biofuels, Biopower, and Bioproducts The Biomass Program is working to advance biomass technologies in support of DOE’s mission to strengthen America’s energy security, environmental quality, and economic vitality through: Feedstocks Improving conversion efficiencies and costs Evaluating vehicle emissions, performance, and deployment options Providing a clean, domestic, dispatchable renewable source of power Expanding portfolio beyond cellulosic ethanol to hydrocarbon fuels Developing lower cost feedstock logistics systems Conversion technologies Systematically validating and deploying technology at first-of-a-kind facilities Infrastructure Biopower Advanced biofuels Integrated biorefineries

3 3 | Golden Field Budget Requests

4 4 | Golden Field Budget Breakdown FY 2011 FY 2009 ARRA funding cover TRL 6-7

5 5 | Golden Field Planned Distribution of FY11 Request Technology Readiness Level (TRL) Percentage of requested funding

6 6 | Golden Field Recovery Act Funding and Initiatives $800 Million in Funding to Biomass Program $509M Pilot and Demonstration-Scale Biorefineries Validate technologies for integrated production of advanced biofuels, products, and power to enable financing and replication. In 2009, DOE selected - 12 pilot-scale projects for up to $25M each - 4 demonstration-scale projects for up to $50M - 2 research and development projects for $2.5M each $82MCommercial-Scale Biorefineries Increase in funding for one previously awarded project to expedite construction and accelerate commissioning and start-up $107MFundamental Research $18M: Integrated Process Development Unit $5M: Sustainability research with Office of Science, National Laboratory, university, and USDA partners $35M: National Advanced Biofuels Consortium (NABC) to accelerate demonstration $49M: National Alliance for Advanced Biofuels and BioProducts Consortium (NAABB) to accelerate demonstration (focused on algae)

7 7 | Golden Field NABC Research Strategies Consortium Leads: NREL, PNNL Consortium Partners: Albemarle, Amyris, ANL, BP Products, Catchlight, Colorado School of Mines, Iowa State Univ., LANL, Pall, RTI, Tesoro, UC Davis, UOP, Virent, Washington State Univ. 1 3 2 645 NABC matrix of technology and strategy teams will ensure development of complete integrated processes. Project Objective: Develop cost-effective technologies that supplement petroleum-derived fuels with advanced “drop-in” biofuels that are compatible with today’s transportation infrastructure and are produced in a sustainable manner. ARRA Funded: DOE Funding $33.8M/Cost Share $12.5M over 3 years

8 8 | Golden Field Biofuels Consortia: Algal Biofuels R&D  National Alliance for Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts  Sustainable Algal Biofuels Consortium  Consortium for Algal Biofuels Commercialization  Cellana, LLC Consortium Breaking down critical barriers to the commercialization of algae based biofuels such as aviation fuels, diesel, and gasoline that can be transported and sold using today’s existing fueling infrastructure. ARRA-funded Appropriations funded
