  1. 1. Project LIBERTY
  2. 2. Project LIBERTY <ul><li>• Project LIBERTY is the transformation of an existing conventional corn dry mill ethanol facility into an integrated bio-refinery with eco-sustainable and renewable technologies. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Project LIBERTY <ul><li>The result of the transformation will be a commercial-scale biorefinery that integrates advanced corn dry milling and lignocellulosic technologies to produce ethanol from corn fiber and cobs as well as corn grain </li></ul>
  4. 4. Project LIBERTY Benefits <ul><li>Minimizes global warming </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces dependency on foreign oil </li></ul><ul><li>Supports nation’s goal of 35 billion gallons of ethanol by 2017 </li></ul><ul><li>Builds upon the corn-to-ethanol foundation of the industry </li></ul>
  5. 5. U.S. Department of Energy Grant <ul><li>The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded a grant that will fund a portion of the transformation. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Project LIBERTY Investment <ul><li>• Project LIBERTY is an investment of over $200 million with a total site investment of over $300 million. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Project LIBERTY Site POET Biorefining ― Emmetsburg
  8. 8. Project LIBERTY Objectives <ul><li>Validate the technology at commercial scale </li></ul><ul><li>Validate the economics at commercial scale </li></ul><ul><li>Enable replication at other existing dry mills or new grassroots facilities </li></ul>
  9. 9. Project LIBERTY – A Key Requirement <ul><li>Implement a sustainable cob collection, storage and delivery system to provide both feedstock and fuel for the biorefinery </li></ul>
  10. 10. Project LIBERTY Deliverables <ul><li>Maximizes alternative energy production and minimizes energy usage </li></ul><ul><ul><li>11% more bio-fuel from a bushel of corn </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>27% more bio-fuel from an acre of corn </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>83% less renewable energy needed to operate a corn-to-ethanol plant </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>24% less water consumption </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Products of the Biorefinery <ul><li>Once completed, the LIBERTY Bio-refinery will process its feedstocks into a range of products including: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fuel grade ethanol </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Organic acid </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dakota Gold Corn Germ Dehydrated™ for oil extraction or a feed ingredient </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dakota Gold HP™ – a high protein animal feed </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Project LIBERTY Timeline <ul><li>Technology development underway </li></ul><ul><li>Pilot plant is operational </li></ul><ul><li>In negotiations with DOE </li></ul><ul><li>30-month construction schedule </li></ul>
