2 SUMMARY The biorefinery concept Proesa Technology Biofuel and Biochemicals 2

3 BIOBASED CHEMICALS FROM BIOMASS: IS IT POSSIBLE? 3

4 The Biorefinery Concept The biorefinery concept is analogous to today's petroleum refinery, which produce multiple fuels and chemicals from petroleum Feedstock Conversion Platform End markets Conversion Platform Feedstock Fuels and energy Chemicals and polymers Advanced carbohydrates (cellulose and hemicellulose) Petrochemical way one raw material Cellulosic Sugars and Lignin Biorefinery way many raw materials 4

5 Sustainability of the Biorefinery: a question of energy The barrel of oil is replaced by the new biomass barrel CELLULOSE CELLULOSE (35 ( %) %) EMICELLULOSE EMICELLULOSE (15 ( %) %) LIGNIN LIGNIN (15 ( %) %) Biofuels Biochemicals Biochemicals (Aromatics) ASHES ASHES (5 ( %) %) Silica Producing multiple products and integrating waste treatment, Biorefineries can maximize the values derived from biomass feedstock and turn biomass processing into real opportunities 5

7 Our R&D Center Rivalta, Italy Rivalta Scrivia, Piedmont Italy Biochemtex research facility is equipped with 4600 m 2 dedicated to fuels chemistry and technology from renewable resources and counts engineers, biotechnologists and chemists dedicated to R&D activities. 7

8 Rivalta R&D our R&D Center Units Activities: R&D on biofuels and renewable resources Operational pilot plants for bio-ethanol and target chemicals from lignocellulosic feedstocks Products applications support 130 people dedicated to R&D activities Fully equipped analytical and fermentation laboratories Pilot Plants 8

9 Technology: A Snapshot More than USD 200M investment into R&D since 2006 Extensive agronomic studies and supply chain logistics investigation A continuous 1t/d biomass pilot facility operational since 2009 A contiuous 60 kg/d LIGNIN Pilot plant for MOGHI Technology A continuous 60 kg/d GREG pilot plant Intellectual Property 44 patent family applications filed, 25 are public, several patent GRANTED. Collaboration with chemical, catalyst and/or Biotech companies Commitment of Mossi Ghisolfi Group / Biochemtex and its partners to continuous development and improvement 9

10 PROESA Technology Step by step Q Scouting of Technologies Generation of key inventions Proof of UNIT OPERATION in the labs Pilot plant construction & start up (June 2009) Pilot Plant operation and data gathering Test of Plant flexibility using multiple biomasses Crescentino Plant Collaboration Agreements with leading synthetic biology companies License Agreements Formation of Beta Renewables Crescentino Plant Start-up 10

11 Cost-effective sugars from biomass Agronomy best energy crops, based on field experiments Biomass pre-treatment and viscosity reduction: continuous process Hydrolysis and fermentation: unique hybrid SSCF process yielding high ethanol concentrations Aggregation: fully integrated process design Biomass Enzymes CO 2 Water Feed Handling Pre-Treatment and Viscosity Reduction Hydrolysis + Fermentation Recovery Ethanol Steam Water Boiler + Generator Steam Power 11

16 The Concept of Biorefinery MG is developing its own technologies for sugars conversion and lignin processing. A biorefinery will produce various products: initially ethanol, then diols, later aromatics.
