 WHAT:  Enerkem Alberta Biofuels, along with the City of Edmonton and the
           Government of Alberta, will host a groundbreaking ceremony for its
           municipal waste-to-biofuels plant. For Enerkem, this symbolizes
           its commitment to providing advanced transportation fuels locally
           and globally. This world's first municipal waste-to-biofuels
           facility will provide Edmonton the opportunity to reduce GHG
           emissions by offering a sustainable alternative to landfilling
           while producing an advanced transportation biofuel. The facility
           will use Enerkem's green technology to convert non-recyclable and
           non-compostable municipal solid waste into methanol and ethanol.

           - The Honourable Ed Stelmach, Premier of Alberta
           - His Worship Stephen Mandel, Mayor of Edmonton
           - Vincent Chornet, President and Chief Executive Officer, Enerkem
