Syntec Hits a High of 110 GPT of Fuel Alcohols

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 30, 2008) - Syntec Biofuel Inc. (OTCBB:SYBF), a company developing biomass to fuel conversion technologies, announced today they have, over the past 30 days, consistently achieved over 110 gallons of alcohols (ethanol, methanol, n-butanol and n-propanol) per ton (U.S.) of biomass.

Dr. George Kosanovich, CEO, "We believe the improved results demonstrate that our thermo-chemical catalysts offer a solid commercial route for the highly efficient and environmentally sound conversion of waste biomass into alcohols.

"It is important to note that the laboratory work was carried out to industry accepted standards and the results include an assumption of only 33% of conversion efficiency in the process which we expect to constantly improve," he stated.

Michael Jackson, President and Chairman, said, "The thermo-chemical processing of gasified waste biomass not only has an economic future, but can also address many of the current issues besetting biofuels produced from high-priced food crops.

"Waste biomass, whether it be in the form of corn stover, sugarcane bagasse, MSW or wood chips, provides an enormous, global biofuel feedstock resource that is sustainable, economic, carbon neutral and is, importantly, protective of food production."

The Syntec B2A ('biomass to alcohol') technology, initially developed at the University of British Columbia, is focused on second-generation cellulosic ethanol production.

Syntec's innovative technology uses any renewable waste biomass such as hard or soft wood, sawdust or bark, organic waste, agricultural waste (including sugar cane bagasse and corn stover), and switch-grass to produce syngas. This syngas, comprised of carbon monoxide and hydrogen, is then scrubbed and passed through a fixed bed reactor containing the Syntec catalysts to produce ethanol, methanol and higher order alcohols. The Syntec technology can also produce alcohols from biogas (sourced from anaerobic digestion of manure and effluent), landfill gas or stranded methane.
