EPA Approves Flint Hills Resources’ Iowa Falls Plant for Cellulosic Ethanol using Edeniq’s Technology

Edeniq, Inc., a leading cellulosic and biorefining technology company
announced today that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”)
has approved Flint Hills Resources’ registration of its 100 million
gallons per year Iowa Falls, Iowa ethanol plant for cellulosic ethanol
production using Edeniq’s technology.

Iowa Falls is the fifth existing ethanol plant to receive approval from
the EPA for cellulosic ethanol production using Edeniq’s Pathway
technology. The four existing ethanol plants that have previously
received this approval are: Pacific Ethanol’s Stockton, CA plant; Flint
Hills Resources’ Shell Rock, IA plant; Little Sioux Corn Processors’
Marcus, IA plant; and, Siouxland Energy Cooperative’s plant located in
Sioux Center, IA.

Edeniq’s registered customers now total 500 MGPY of nameplate ethanol
capacity and are averaging more than one percent cellulosic ethanol.
Customers’ cellulosic ethanol yields have increased on average in 2017,
and Edeniq expects its technology will continue to advance cellulosic
yields for its customers. Significant results are now being shown from
process improvements and tuning, yielding ever-increasing production and
product diversification.

Edeniq’s technology remains the lowest-cost solution for producing and
measuring cellulosic ethanol from corn kernel fiber utilizing existing
fermenters at existing corn ethanol plants, and has already proven
cellulosic ethanol yields of up to 2.5% or higher, as a percentage of
its customers’ total volume output. Once approved by EPA, customers are
eligible to qualify cellulosic gallons with D3 RINs, which are
considered the most valuable on the RIN market. Additional benefits of
Edeniq’s technology include increases in corn oil production and greater
overall ethanol yields, all provided by a zero-capex cellulosic ethanol
production option.

Cam Cast, Edeniq’s Chief Operating Officer, remarked that, “With the
investment, partnership and success of existing corn ethanol plants like
Flint Hills Resources, Edeniq is the clear market leader in its
technology that is enabling—today—millions of gallons of EPA approved
cellulosic ethanol to come online. In turn, these gallons materially
contribute to the profitability of Edeniq’s customer plants and help
achieve the goals of the federal Renewable Fuel Standard. It is a
win-win all around.”

Edeniq’s President and CEO, Brian Thome, further stated, “We are
encouraged by this latest EPA approval, which enables another customer
plant to add significant new value to its existing corn ethanol plant
through our technology. Every ethanol plant in the country has the
ability to bring millions of EPA approved cellulosic ethanol gallons to
market, every year, utilizing our technology. We look forward to working
with our existing and future customers to secure additional EPA
approvals for cellulosic ethanol. We appreciate EPA’s continued diligent
work to process the registration petitions in a timely manner.”
