Energy Reinvented Blue Northern Energy Introduction Disclaimer: This document contains forward-looking statements. The Company cannot guarantee the outcome of any investment. This is not a solicitation to sell stock or other form of security. Interested investors should request separate offering documentation.
Blue Northern Energy’s (BNE) business model is designed to maximize the use of innovation within the bio-fuel industry while bringing to bear a unique perspective on how to profitably manage a biodiesel production facility.
This will be achieved by designing and operating new biodiesel facilities and retrofitting existing biodiesel facilities worldwide that are equipped with the STT Biodiesel Production Units.
In addition, BNE will sublicense STT Biodiesel Production Units internationally to third-party facilities in exchange for equity, license fees, and/or royalties.
Background National Trail Biodiesel Group (NTBG) was formed in 2001 as an agricultural coalition in southern Illinois. In 2009, NTBG sold the development work to Blue Northern Energy after NTBG had conducted several feasibility studies and due diligence was completed by equity firms, government organizations, and private investors. Mission
Build a team of industry leaders in the fields of energy, finance and technology to innovate the renewable energy markets worldwide by providing energy solutions for businesses and communities. Through its work BNE will influence and direct the public and industries in the use of renewable fuels ensuring energy security.
Create a sustainable and profitable biodiesel production industry throughout the United States and globally.
By sharing new technology, innovative business practices and finance procedures Blue Northern Energy will empower businesses, communities and nations to establish sustainable, profitable biodiesel production facilities.
Develop the BNE Innovation Center as a model of the next generation biodiesel production process
