Jatropha: Expanding Feedstock Diversity in Brazil

Top 50 in Bioenergy 2009 & 2010

Feedstock Domestication Project of the Year 2010

Earlier today, we had the privilege of hearing from Dr. Fernando Reinach, a man who, through his leadership in breeding and genomics, played a key role in the development of sugarcane as a bioenergy feedstock in Brazil.Dr. Reinach recently joined our company as a senior advisor for Brazil, and if you ask him, I think hed agree that today Brazil has a similar opportunity to be a global leader in the development of Jatropha as the next great bioenergy feedstock.Much the same way Reinachs CanaVialis and Allelyx adapted sugarcane for growing conditions throughout Brazil, SG Biofuels is using molecular breeding and biotechnology to develop elite hybrid seeds of Jatropha and through our results were attracting interest and investments from global leaders in energy and aviation.

Slide: 3

In Brazil, Jatropha is poised for expansive growth for three main reasons:-- Low production cost compared to other bioenergy feedstocks-- A complete value chain is already in place upstream & downstream, along with a viable market-- Jatropha is the best available crop with which to promote feedstock diversityGrows on marginal land puts millions of hectares of non-arable land back into productive useIdeal for community farming models

But as we all know, the bottom line for the success of any feedstock is economics

Cost per Barrel

Today

Jatropha is cost effective today.We can produce a barrel of CJO for between $58 and $90 per barrelThis compares with $150 per barrel for most competing feedstocksThrough our molecular breeding and biotechnology platform, we have a clear path to lower this cost to $30 per barrelAnd its because of the favorable economics of Jatropha that weve attracted industry leaders as our investors and partners

Partners

Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels

Backed by Koch Industries FHRLife Technologies Corp & Kitano CapitalMajor strategic alliance with Bunge the worlds largest oilseed processor with a strong presence in Brazil

And again, because of the favorable economics and the life cycle sustainability benefits of Jatropha, beyond our own investors and partners we see immense global momentum from leading energy and aviation companies

Jatropha Tested & Validated by Industry Leaders

Biojet Fuel

Biodiesel

Jatropha has been tested and validated as one of the best feedstocks for biodiesel and aviation bio jet fuel by some of the largest energy and aviation companies in the world

Lufthansa, Aeromexico and Interjet are all using Jatropha-based bio jet fuel blends for commercial flights. In Brazil, TAM is pioneering the use of Jatropha-based bio jet fuel blends, flying the first successful flight in Latin America using a Jatropha-based bio jet fuel blend.

So the market is there the key to success with Jatropha comes from developing the highest performing material hybrid varieties that are adapted to local growing conditions while maximizing yields and reducing input costs.

At SG Biofuels were unlocking that tremendous potential

IndiaBharat Renewable Energy Limited (BREL)2nd Largest Petroleum Company in India35,000 HectaresBiodiesel Production

To date, weve sold more than 100,000 hectares of hybrid Jatropha seed worldwide.Earlier this summer we announced our first customer Bharat Renewable Energy (second largest petroleum company in India).Were working with them to develop a 35,000 hectare project for biodiesel production.

And were particularly excited about a major deal we just announced here in Brazil

BrazilJETBIOMulti-Stakeholder Initiative30,000 HectaresCentral-West RegionBiokerosene for jet fuelInitial phases funded by Airbus & IDB

We have partnered with a consortium of aviation leaders including Airbus, TAM, the IDB and Brazilian biofuel project developers on a major effort to scale Jatropha for the production of bio jet fuel.

Were working with our partners on a multi-phased program leading to the deployment of more than 30,000 hectares of intercropped Jatropha plantations in the Central-west region of Brazil using our hybrid seeds. The crude Jatropha oil produced will be converted into biokerosene to supply the local aviation industry.

The favorable growing conditions in Central-west Brazil combined with our hybrid varieties provide the strongest platform to develop a successful Jatropha project.

Through this partnership, we see the full value chain in place

In closing, like sugarcane before it, Jatropha stands poised to become the next great bioenergy crop in Brazil for three key reasons:

Its low production costThe existing of a viable value chain for deploymentAnd its ability to promote feedstock diversity, particular in areas with large amounts of non-arable land not suited for other crops.
