About Alcar Chemicals Group

The Alcar Chemicals Group (OTC: ACMG) represents a significant market opportunity due to a serious worldwide supply shortage of raw materials for polymers, a growing shortage estimated to reach over 6 million tons in 2006 as well as a growing interest in cleaner energy sources.

The market price for the materials in question vary between $1,000 and $3,000 per metric ton and the ACMG developed a patented process and bioreactor which allow production at costs savings of up to 40% when compared to current production methods, translating in gross margins of over 50%. With the planned expansion, the ACMG production process will reach a total capacity of 120,000 tons annually of economical and environmentally friendly materials for polymers.

ACMG has been concentrating on innovative methods for biomass valorisation for the past decade, specifically petroleum-independent fuel and plastics resin production. Its proprietary technology represents today's most economical and advanced manufacturing process for plastic raw materials, ethanol and bio-diesel, significantly improving the offerings of ACMG's customers in plastic manufacturing, energy and transportation sectors.

ACMG is now structured into three divisions: 1) ACG Advanced Materials, which focus has shifted and will now concentrate entirely on manufacturing plastic raw materials; 2) ACG Advanced Energy Systems, dedicated to manufacturing of high-purity non-petroleum-based ethanol and ethanol derived biodiesel; and 3) Alcar technologies, which will remain an R&D division and pursue new innovations on advanced materials and processes.
