1 Biomaterials Innovation at Eastman Business Park

2 million million thousand gallons/day wastewater treatment facility square feet of manufacturing, lab, warehouse and office space acre campus miles thousand partner companies of integrated railroad system tons processed annually, a variety of feedstocks to sugars on site, including many in the clean technology sector UNIQUE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR THE BIOMATERIALS ADVANCED MANUFACTURING CENTER

3 88 reactors 60 thousand from 100 1,000 gallon capacity square feet for the future Bioscience Manufacturing Center of shovel-ready parcels acres million 125 megawatt 24 gallons/day industrial water supply power plant producing electricity, steam and chilled water security, fire department, hazmat, health and emergency services seven Eastman Business Park is the only multi-faceted industrial complex on the continent that unites research and manufacturing space, plus utilities, transportation, water/wastewater treatment, workforce excellence and technological, process and operational superiority all in one place!

4 commercialization of biomass materials to bioproducts at an accelerated pace Eastman Business Park s comprehensive suite of test, validation, prototyping and pilot manufacturing tools are specifically designed to help accelerate innovation beyond the lab from prototyping and proof of concept into commercialization especially in the biomaterials sector. The Bioscience Manufacturing Center is at the heart of Eastman Business Park s fully-integrated innovation ecosystem for biomaterials innovation. This state-of-the-art fermentation center will have high-energy stainless steel tanks ranging from 40K to 250K liters. It will be made available to companies as a toll manufacturing facility to convert 30,000 tons of first and second generation sugars into a wide range of renewable chemicals and biodegradable plastics. This exciting commercialization initiative poses a unique low cap-ex solution for many mid-stage bio-companies, and will create hundreds of new advanced manufacturing jobs.

6 Next generation biomaterials starts with remarkable SUPPORT FROM established science Onsite Kodak facilities, complete with skilled scientists and engineers, are available to help advance biomaterials technology including a specialty chemicals production and pre-manufacturing center for high value molecules, and a solvent recovery operation that can serve as a bio-refinery to process, store and ship biomaterials. Solvent Recovery Kodak s Solvent Recovery Operation has helped dozens of new external partners turn tons of industrial waste streams into profit centers refining and oftentimes reselling high-purity solvent to new customers for reuse in a variety of applications. Or it can process crude stream into purified products, solving technical distillation problems for those producing advanced biofuels, including companies like GEVO, allowing these companies to focus their resources on their main innovation. Kodak s broad chemical processing capability and breadth of experience have enabled us to refine Isobutanol, a versatile chemical for use in a variety of petrochemical value chains, thus providing our customers with a bio-derived alternative to fossil fuels at a price that is competitive and less volatile than petroleum. Greg Roda Chief Commercial Officer, GEVO Specialty Chemicals With 88 reactors ranging from 100 to 1,000 gallons, over 1,500 approved manufacturing processes and a proprietary database of over 100,000 molecules, Kodak Specialty Chemicals has the capacity and expertise to address chemistry scale up, custom synthesis and toll manufacturing needs for biotech companies like Sweetwater Energy and Novomer. Product specialties include heterocycles, complex organic products, functional dyes, photoactive compounds and specialty polymers. Kodak s Specialty Chemicals Group at Eastman Business Park continues to help us leverage our smaller startup staff on the R&D side, not just in interacting with their scientists but also in having access to their labs and equipment. Sweetwater is now building a demonstration-scale system in close proximity to the Specialty Chemicals facility. Kodak s Specialty Chemicals has saved us a lot of money and they continue to deliver exceptional product and support. Arunas Chesonis CEO, Sweetwater Energy Naturally Scientific U.S. Under a joint venture between UK-based Naturally Scientific and BCW Chemicals, a New York-based LLC, Naturally Scientific US (NSUS) has plans to establish operations at Eastman Business Park, where the company will convert concentrated C5 and C6 sugar solutions into highvalue oils for a broad range of industrial applications.

7 Opening the door to economic growth via biomaterials innovation Eastman Business Park is helping some of our nation s best and brightest clean technology companies become profitable, selfsustaining, job-creating enterprises quickly and economically. With over 50 companies employing thousands of workers on site, Eastman Business Park is a critical component of the commercialization solution for biomaterials companies. The combination of world class structure at Eastman Business Park and supportive business environment in New York State, led by Governor Cuomo, made it clear that choosing Eastman Business Park as our US headquarters was in our company s best interest, and in the best interest of the community. Keith Wilson Managing Partner Naturally Scientific U.S. Cerion Energy Cerion Energy invented, and is manufacturing, a diesel fuel catalyst that cuts consumption, reduces costs and lowers emissions in the multibillion dollar diesel fuel business. It is also working on collaborative projects with local partners in the areas of battery technology, biopharmaceuticals and other fuel catalysts. Without Eastman Business Park, we would have had to build our own pilotscale production capability and purchase our own lab equipment, costing considerable investor capital. In addition, we have been able to take full advantage of Kodak s vast knowledge dealing with a sophisticated manufacturing operation, as well as the ability to maneuver through complex environmental and regulatory compliance issues not to mention a unique infrastructure that includes access to utilities, logistics and materials handling support services. Matt Winslow Vice President of Business Development, Cerion Novomer A sustainable materials company, Novomer, Inc. keeps winning international recognition for pioneering the development of a family of high-performance plastics, polymers and other chemicals from renewable feedstocks such as carbon dioxide (CO 2 ). By partnering with Eastman Business Park, we were able to scale-up our new technology innovation with a much smaller degree of risk and investment. We not only gained access to their reactors and analytical tools, Eastman Business Park helped us demonstrate on a small scale; then they helped us map out the next phase from a process, review and validation standpoint. As a result, they helped us scale up production from 25 gallons to 1,100 gallons of product within a shortened time period. ron Valente PhD, Vice President of R&D, Novomer

8 Add it up Invented here = Manufactured here Critical mass Physical assets Technical talent With the new state-of-the-art Bioscience Manufacturing Center, Eastman Business Park is firmly established to play to its historic strengths: the formation of innovation ecosystems for the scale up to commercialization of groundbreaking technologies in the biomaterials space all via access to incredible infrastructure and expertise. Eastman Business Park s assets are a tremendous and ready resource to any company looking to substantially reduce the time and expense it takes to become self-sustaining, to create advanced manufacturing jobs in the innovation economy, and turn a profit.
