  1. D1 OilsDr. Piet van der Linde Barcelona September 20-21, 2007

  2. Summary • D1 Oils: Vision and Background • Management and Structure • A focused upstream strategy • Jatropha curcas L. • Plant Science and Agronomy

  3. Vision and background • Vision: • To become a global leader in biodiesel supply by building a global supply chain that is sustainable and delivers value “from earth to engine” • Background • AIM (LSE) listed • IPO LSE AIM October 2004 • £40m raised in initial two funding rounds (October 04 and June 05) • Returned to markets December 2006 • £46m raised to take company to cash positive phase • Focus on Agronomy • Joint venture with British Petroleum from October 2007

  4. Structure and Management • 2 core elements • Upstream • D1 Oils Plant Sciences • Plant Science and Agronomy • D1-BP Fuel Plants: • Plantation management • Oil Extraction • Downstream • Refining • Transesterification • Trading • Strong management team • Chairman: Lord Oxburgh former Chairman of Shell • CEO: Elliot Mannis former CFO AWG

  5. Focus of upstream activities • Focus on biodiesel feedstock species that are • Non-edible • Avoid competition oil for food vs fuel. • Sustainable • Environmentally elastic • Avoid competition with valuable ecosystems • Avoid competition with land for food production • Avoid excessive use of (drinking) water • High yielding • Make feedstock economically viable • Social value creation • Job/economy creation in emerging markets • Optimal use of byproducts

  6. Focus of upstream activities • ‘Normal’ biodiesel feedstock options • Rapeseed • Palm • Soybean • Alternative biodiesel feedstock options • Jatropha • Pongamia • Camellina • Crambe

  7. Jatropha curcas L. (jatros = doctor, trophe = food) • Tropical/subtropical shrub • Originates from Central America • Grows 30 degrees latitude north/south • Sustainable • High yield of non-edible oil • Environmentally elastic • Stimulates rural economic development • Biodiesel fit • Oil produces high quality biodiesel

  8. Edible Iodine CFPP Biodiesel fit

  9. Energy balance

  10. By-products value/ha Oil value/ha Phase 4 Genetic Modification Phase 3 Hybridization and Marker Assisted Selection Phase 2 Classical Breeding and Product Placement Germplasm fingerprinting Phase 1 Agronomy research and Accession testing Molecular Marker Platfrom Phase 0 Germplasm collection Crop Domestication Plant Science and Agronomy – D1’s differentiator • Mission: • Create value through the application of state-of-the-art plant science and agronomy on Jatropha curcas L. and other inedible biodiesel feedstock species. • Strategy:

  11. Plant Science and Agronomy – D1’s differentiator • Traditional crop development: • New Crop development 30-50 years What is the retirement age in plant biotechnology these days? 20-25 years

  12. Plant Science and Agronomy – D1’s differentiator • Activities • Breeding and Technology Development • Product Placement and Agronomy Research • Multiplication • Sustainable Oil Supply Program

  13. D1 Oils Plant Science • Key achievements • Selection of high oil / ha yielding accession collection. • Multiplication program of first selected accession. • Launch of Sustainable Oil Supply Programme. • Global, regional and country R&D network implemented. • Cooperation agreement with Keygene on molecular breeding.

  14. Natural variation in oil content in Jatropha

  15. Natural variation in nature

  16. Natural variation in oil composition in Jatropha

  17. Multiplication of Jatropha
