1 PROESA TECHNOLOGY Commercial Scale Production of Fermentable Sugars from cellulosic biomass Kota Kinabalu September 7 th, 2015 Pierluigi Picciotti Topics Group Overview: focus on Biochemtex and Beta Renewables The Biorefinery Concept: Biofuels and Biochemicals The Proesa Technology CRESCENTINO & Other Projects 1

2 Polymers One of the top 3 producers worldwide Engineering and R&D 60 years of excellence in process development and commercialization of plants Sustainable Chemistry Proesa : technology leader in biofuels and chemical intermediates from non-food biomass Guido Ghisolfi Our R&D Centers Rivalta, Italy 4500 m 2 dedicated to renewable resources biochemistry and technology with pilot plant (1 ton/hr) for biomass test Biochemtex also operates an R&D center focused on cellulosic sugar chemistry in Bari (Italy) 2

3 Our Approach to a Local Biomass Supply Chain The flexibility of the Proesa Pretreatment enables a locally sourced and flexible supply chain, based on a mix of locally available agricultural residues and energy crops Biochemtex Agro was established to develop the supply chain for Crescentino Through Beta Renewables, Biochemtex Agro supports the analysis and development of the supply chain for Proesa licensees This approach guarantees year-round security of supply Our Business Model Owns the Proesa technology Conducts the continuous process improvement Licenses the technology worldwide Provides performance guarantees Supports licensees on biomass supply chain, off-take Operates the commercial site in Crescentino, Italy Exclusive engineering partner Supplies, at a minimum, a basic engineering and key equipment package Provides mechanical guarantees Qualifies EPC contractors Support in commissioning, start-up and training 3

4 Supporting your 2G Project from Idea to Realization + + Enable Deploy Empower Development Engineering Construction Start-up Operations Project feasibility study and investment estimates Qualify feedstock in pilot plant Optimize process parameters and enzymes for feedstock Support in the development of a biomass supply chain Basic engineering package Qualify EPC contractor Permitting support and procurement of critical equipment Support in the construction of the plant and deployment Start-up and training Support in finding product off-takers Ensure joint performance guarantees hold Provide ongoing customer support Supply of enzymes and yeast Topics Group Overview: focus on Biochemtex and Beta Renewables The Biorefinery Concept: Biofuels and Biochemicals The Proesa Technology CRESCENTINO & Other Projects 4

5 The Biorefinery Concept The biorefinery concept is analogous to today's petroleum refinery, which produces 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) Cellulosic Sugars and Lignin Petroleum Refinery one raw material Biorefinery many raw materials The New Biomass Barrel CELLULOSE (35-50 %) HEMICELLULOSE (15 35 %) Biofuels Biochemicals LIGNIN (15 20 %) Biochemicals (Aromatics) ASH (5 15 %) 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

6 We need green fuels The transport sector is Today and. responsible for about 25% of global CO 2 emissions An advanced biofuel like cellulosic ethanol will reduce GHG emissions by approximately 115% Sources: UN-Energy, International Monetary Fund, US DoE and EPA 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 6

7 The Biorefinery Opportunity - Now a reality through PROESA Today and. Ethanol Biomass PROESA Fermentation Separation Fermentable Sugars Lignin Energy Production Steam & Electricity The Biorefinery Opportunity - a reality through PROESA. Tomorrow Fuel Biomass PROESA Fermentation Separation Fermentable Sugars EtOH, iso-buoh, JetFuel Aromatics Lignin Conversion /Separation Chemicals Fatty Alcohols Polyols n-buoh Chemical & Biological Conversion Platform Materials Lactic acid Acrylic acid Succinic acid Adipic acid BTX PTA Plastics & Polymers Market 7

8 The Concept of Biorefinery M&G is developing its own technologies for sugars conversion and lignin processing. A biorefinery will produce various products: initially ethanol, then diols, and later aromatics. biocatalyst Fermentation/ Separation YEAST Iso Buthanol Fatty Alcohols 1, 4 BDO BIOMASS C5,6 Sugars PROESA Fermentation Separation 2G Ethanol Hydrogen Lignin MOGHI BTX GREG Polyols Hydrogen Catalyst Topics Group Overview: focus on Biochemtex and Beta Renewables The Biorefinery Concept: Biofuels and Biochemicals The Proesa Technology CRESCENTINO & Other Projects 8
