INSEQ Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: INSQ) today announced its execution of an agreement with Ethanol Oil Recovery Systems, LLC (“EORS”), to manufacture proprietary systems to extract crude corn oil from the evaporation area of dry mill ethanol facilities for further refining into biodiesel fuel.
EORS, a green technology development company, is the inventor of a new patent-pending breakthrough technology for the cost-effective conversion of corn oil into biodiesel fuels. EORS is a participant of a development partnership comprised of and managed by ethanol producers and plans to finance and construct a biodiesel production facility that will refine the crude corn oil and convert it into biodiesel fuels.
The EORS process will redirect an internal waste stream in dry mill ethanol facilities through EORS’ proprietary extraction systems where crude corn oil is extracted and then prepared for shipment offsite for further refining. The extraction systems are the essential element of the EORS technology.
Under the terms of INSEQ’s agreement with EORS, EORS has granted INSEQ right of first refusal rights relating to the manufacture of the extraction systems and any other manufacturing needs relating to the extraction systems. INSEQ expects the extraction systems to retail for about $1 million per system and that EORS and its affiliated entities will need in excess of 30 systems over the next 24 months, for total expected revenues of more than $30 million. INSEQ will manufacture the systems at its Ohio based specialty equipment manufacturing facility. The first of these systems are expected to ship during the fourth quarter of 2005.
Kevin Kreisler, INSEQ’s chairman, said that “The EORS technology is an exciting and important advance that is designed to plug right into most ethanol producers’ existing infrastructure. We see the EORS technology as a particularly potent example of how we can and should be using our natural resources better, and how we can be more profitable for it. These systems will generate additional revenue and increase earnings for ethanol producers, as well as for EORS and INSEQ, and they will enable the increased production of cleaner burning green fuels that can be expected to reduce demand for fossil fuels and reduce the generation of greenhouse gases.”
Kreisler added: “GreenShift intends to facilitate profitable interaction between its portfolio companies as appropriate. This agreement is a significant development for both INSEQ and EORS and GreenShift expects to provide INSEQ with financing and any other support it needs as it gears up to meet EORS’ needs over the coming months.”
EORS and INSEQ are respectively 15% and 70% owned by GreenShift Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: GSHF), a business development corporation whose mission is to develop and support companies and technologies that facilitate the efficient use of natural resources and catalyze transformational environmental gains.
