IDF Award

Woodland Biofuels Awarded $4 Million by Ontario For Revolutionary Cellulosic Ethanol Demonstration Plant.

Burlington, ON, April 9, 2010 - Ontario is investing $4 million through the Innovation Demonstration Fund (IDF) to help Woodland Biofuels Inc. and its partners build a groundbreaking demonstration plant that will efficiently produce cellulosic ethanol from renewable wastes.

The plant will use Woodland's patented technology, which can produce sustainable fuels from virtually any type of biomass, including wood waste and agricultural waste. The technology generates no toxic emissions and eliminates the need to use food, such as corn, to produce ethanol.

The announcement was made today by Ontario Minister Sophia Aggelonitis on the floor of Zeton's construction facility in Burlington, Ontario. Zeton Inc., the world's leading demonstration plant engineering and construction firm, is one of Woodland's partners.
"Thanks to Ontario's support we can build a plant that we anticipate will confirm our ability to successfully produce ethanol from renewable waste with breakthrough efficiency. We expect to be, by a significant margin, the lowest cost producer of automotive fuel in North America," said Greg Nuttall, President and CEO of Woodland. "This will not only put Ontario in the front of the global race to find an alternative to fossil fuels but ultimately will also provide Ontario with significant economic and environmental benefits. We are grateful for the extraordinary level of support provided by the province and are delighted to have Zeton as part of our team."

The plant is expected to be located at the Bioindustrial Innovation Centre, in the University of Western Ontario's Sarnia-Lambton Research Park.
