Byogy is an advanced biofuel technology company based out of San Jose, California with a division in Sao Paulo Brazil. The company has developed a patent pending proprietary catalytic technology that very efficiently and highly cost effectively, converts any ethanol directly to clean jet fuel, gasoline, and diesel. The renewable fuels produced are100% true drop-in replacements for their petroleum based counterparts and require no changes to infrastructure, jet engines or airframes. Byogy has successfully tested its bio-jet fuel with the US Air Force and other key industry jet fuel specialists.

OUTLINE• Who is Byogy• Byogy Technology• The Aviation Industry – Why Alternative Fuels• ASTM Update• Global Supply Chain
Byogy, Inc. is in the final stages of commercializing a highly efficient, patentpending, proven process for converting regular ethanol into a 100%replacement for renewable jet fuel, gasoline and diesel fuel.• Formed in 2006 in California;• Core IP stems from Texas A&M; Invented over 12 years ago;• Non-Traditional Funding : No VC or PE (No Press Until Ready);• Specialized team with chemical and petroleum experience (not bio-based).
• Byogy is NOT an alcohol/ethanol producer;• Byogy invented a unique process that converts ethanol to a 100% drop-in replacement for petroleum derived fuels;• Byogy’s fuels do NOT require change to ANY infrastructure;• Byogy does not rely on “magic bugs” or special enzymes;• All steps are currently used in commercial scale in the petrochemical industry;• Catalytic process that is capital efficient and scalable;• The process does not require external hydrogen and hydro- processing like FT, HEFA, and competing ATJ butanol producers.

Aviation is the backbone of international trade and businessA key driver of every business, industry, technology, andnational defense. “THE PHYSICAL INTERNET”The raw materials and technologies necessary to makealternative jet fuels at COMPETTITIVE PRICES will ALWAYS be inhigh long-term demand over the production of bio-chemicals,lotions, or plastics.
2 billion passengers fly per year; 32 million jobs associated with aviation sector; 8% World Gross Domestic Product; 2% of Global CO2 emissions (with no choice).• Fuel is the biggest operating cost for the aviation industry;• Refining costs to produce jet fuel from a barrel of oil are exponential;• The fluctuating price of crude makes it difficult to budget;• Biofuels can reduce airline’s exposure to this fuel cost volatility by offering long term stable pricing and alternative sourcing.
