1 Michael Williams Gasification Technologies Council, 28 th October 2014 Smaller scale Fischer-Tropsch enables biomass-to-liquids

2 Velocys The company at the forefront of smaller scale GTL and BTL Leader in smaller scale gas-to-liquids and biomass-to-liquids technology 15 years and >$300 million invested in technology development Exhaustive global patent protection (>900 patents world-wide) Commercial roll-out underway Solena GreenSky London GTL JV Red Rock Biofuels Well capitalised with strong resources Commercial center in Houston, Texas; technical centers near Columbus, Ohio and Oxford, UK Permanent pilot plant in operation 2

3 The Fischer-Tropsch (FT) process for biomass-toliquids (BTL) Gasification Fischer Tropsch Hydroprocessing Biomass, waste, coal Syngas carbon monoxide + hydrogen Syncrude Synthetic crude oil Clean synthetic fuels diesel, naphtha, jet fuel etc. Velocys microchannel reactor and super-active catalyst 3

4 Velocys Fischer-Tropsch fuels Choose from a range of high value products Drop in replacement for petroleum derived fuels, lubricants and other products Zero (or near zero) sulfur content Can be used as a blend stock for ultra-low sulfur fuels High cetane Meets military specification for aviation fuel FT diesel powered every 24 hour Le Mans winner since 2006 Lower emissions Lower SOx, NOx and particulates compared to petroleum fuels Quieter engine operation 4

5 The historical face of Fischer-Tropsch Mega-scale GTL and CTL projects Conventional Fischer-Tropsch reactor 5

6 Think Smaller TM 6

7 Think Smaller Plant scaled to match MSW or biomass collection logistics Nothing wasted Smaller scale facilities makes the most of the resources available Better options Smaller, low cost plants need less gas or biomass to be profitable Enabling FT to be used for biomass and MSW projects FT plants can now be sized to match the scale of collection logistics A plant of 1,000 barrels per day output (~200,000 tons of waste per year) could be economic, depending on local conditions, including tax regimes Conventional FT reactor Velocys commercial FT reactor 7

8 Smaller scale Improves the economics Our design leverages standardization, unlocking opportunities that were previously uneconomic Our design is specific for smaller scale plants, not just a scaled down large plant Reactor manufacture Our components are standardized, reducing costs Our strategic partnerships allow us to deliver at volume 8

9 Smaller scale Works anywhere Our plants are modular, so they are easier to ship and easier to install Velocys reactors are significantly smaller and lighter than conventional technology 70% of a plant can be factory-built before installation Modular components fit in standard containers for ease of shipping 1,400 bpd FT process unit designed by Ventech Engineers 90 ft L x 46 ft H x ~40 ft W Building is fast, we ve reduced the risk of delays, and plants can even be integrated with existing facilities 9

10 Smaller scale Works for anyone Velocys unlocks more business by working flexibly allowing companies to capitalize on more opportunities Smaller projects means more opportunities, accessible to more companies Ashtabula GTL We have strong partnerships with key players throughout the value chain Velocys can support all aspects of project development and execution 10

11 Commercial roll-out

12 Commercial plant under construction Oklahoma City, USA First of its kind in North America Fully funded by JV between Waste Management (Fortune 500) NRG Energy (Fortune 500) Ventech Engineers Velocys Construction underway Permits received Major contracts signed Mechanical completion end of 2015 Full operation Q1-Q

13 GreenSky London Renewable jet fuel in London Velocys selected by Solena Fuels as FT supplier for commercial 2,500 bpd wastebiomass-to-liquids plant GreenSky London plant in partnership with British Airways Competitive selection process after technology evaluation advised by Fluor BA to provide off-take for jet fuel Pre-Front End Engineering completed Site selection announced April 2014 Site of former Coryton oil refinery in Thurrock, Essex, UK Picture courtesy of British Airways 13

14 Red Rock Biofuels US DoD sponsored BTL Velocys selected for 1,100 bpd biomass-to-liquids (BTL) plant Located in Oregon, USA Using forestry waste feedstock Supported by US Department of Defense and US Department of Energy Received $4.1m phase 1 grant for engineering in July 2013 FEED study complete Received a $70m construction grant in September 2014 Targeting final investment decision H Southwest Airlines to offtake 3 million gal/yr of aviation fuel from the plant 14

15 Supply chain Ready for commercial deployment Commercial FT reactor manufactured Optimized final design for manufacture at volume Catalyst service partner Mourik trained and certified Catalyst loaded in May 2013 Declared as fit for commercial application Commercial reactor Reactor approved as fit for deployment by independent third party Manufacturing ramping up for mass production Catalyst loading 15

16 Summary Smaller scale BTL using FT is now a reality Fischer-Tropsch process now economic at smaller scales Converts low value input into high value liquid fuels & specialties Velocys technology is ideally suited to BTL applications as well as GTL Can be built economically at the appropriate scale Meets the technical demands Velocys technology field demonstrated in a BTL environment Selected for two commercial BTL projects As well as two commercial GTL projects Construction of first commercial plant has begun Supply chain ready for commercial deployment 16

17 Thank you Michael Williams VP, Strategy & Marketing Houston office

20 High performance reactor architecture Microchannels intensify chemical processes Shell-and-tube Microchannel ~ mm Enhanced mass and heat transfer ~ mm Conventional FT reactor Velocys FT reactor 20

21 Velocys microchannel technology Compact, robust, efficient and economic Principles of design and operation FT reactor core Commercial FT reactor Particulate catalyst in small channels High catalyst volume fraction Syngas downflow, products exit bottom Coolant water / steam generation Heat removal by steam generation Strengths High per pass conversion (74-75%) Isothermal behavior thermally stable Robust to upsets Strong economy of mass manufacturing Accommodates high activity catalysts Installed spares relatively cheap High on-stream factor Tail gas recycle only to achieve high conversion Extremely high volumetric productivity Ease of modularization 21

22 Pilot plant and training facility Supporting sales and delivery Integrated GTL pilot plant at the Velocys Ohio, USA site Designed to provide Performance data to support differing client designs Product for client studies Permanent training facility for plant operators Platform for Developing our own field support staff Demonstrating future product generations Add pilot plant photo Pilot plant 22

23 BTL field demonstration - Güssing accomplishments FT technology demonstrated in Güssing, Austria Demonstration conducted on gasified wood Demonstrated that the high performance FT helps overcome some challenges of BTL High conversion of expensive syngas Robust to gasifier upsets 193 syngas interrupts, 32 upsets and 36 shutdowns Steady performance Excellent temperature control Robust to changes in H 2 /CO ratio 23
