Fibre procurement and management we have infrastructure

Fibre Procurement and Management – “We Have Infrastructure”

Road &Water Transportation

  • Harvesting Capacity

    • Over 3,000,000 m3 of annual harvest

  • Road Infrastructure

    • Over 10,000 Km of Capital Roads

    • Maintained and Monitored

    Production of clean renewable energy we integrate

    Production of Clean Renewable Energy – “We Integrate”

    Construction of Steam Turbine

    • Biomass Co-Generation Facility

      • Conifex has embarked on a $70 million biomass cogeneration project in Mackenzie BC.

      • Existing boiler Infrastructure will be upgraded in increase steaming rate to 300,000 lbs/hr.

      • Facility will consume 217,000 ODT’s of feedstock annually

      • Process steam will be extracted and integrated with lumber drying and pellet feedstock conditioning.

      • We believe that we have identified tangible synergies between power, pellets, and sawmilling businesses.

    Fuel Delivery

    We have ordered a new 36 MW/h steam turbine and generator to replace our existing 13.8 MW/h turbine.

    Looking for the right pellet partner black or white

    Looking for the “Right” Pellet Partner – “Black or White”

    • World-Scale Pellet Facility(s)

      • Conifex believes in the increasing global demand for wood pellets as a renewable source energy.

      • Conifex is interested in finding and integrating a compatible pellet partner within its existing infrastructure.

      • Conifex believes that 2nd generation pellets will be the pellet of choice, as they have a higher energy density, and are less likely to decompose when exposed to water.

    Traditional

    2nd Generation Steam Exploded

    2nd Generation

    Torrefied

    Our best outcome would be to align ourselves with a pellet consumer that understands the strategic importance of our fibre resources

    Bioenergy feedstock no longer waste products

    “Bioenergy Feedstock” no longer “Waste Products”

    • Production of Large Volumes of Bioenergy Feedstock/Year

    Unlike other operators in the Interior Region of BC, Conifex has not yet entered into any long-term commitments for the biomass feedstock we produce.

    We believe in supplying the most suitable cost effective fibre to the appropriate facility.

    10


    Log lumber and bioenergy feedstock relationships

    Log, Lumber and Bioenergy Feedstock Relationships

    • Residuals typically account for over 50% of sawlog volumes.

    Finding an appropriate partner for conifex

    Finding an Appropriate Partner for Conifex

    Partner Considerations

    • An appreciation of the strong potential Conifex has to be a reliable and cost-effective supplier of bio-energy feedstock.

      • Strong tenure position with environmental certification

      • Large volumes of uncommitted sawmill residuals

    • An appreciation of the synergies available through the integration of second generation pellets with forestry, sawmilling and electric power activities.

    • A deep understanding of the technology and market potential for “second generation” pellets.

    • A willingness to commit key personnel on a priority basis to develop this opportunity to our mutual advantage.

    On behalf of Conifex, our Board of Directors, and our committed employees, we appreciate the opportunity to speak with you today.
