New jet fuel paves the way to green flying – Swedish Biofuels participant in FAA project

6 December, 2011

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (5 Dec, 2011) – Swedish Biofuels AB, the high-tech alternative energy
company from Sweden, announces its participation in a U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA) grant for an Alcohol to Jet Project. The project is aimed at
accelerating the commercial availability of next generation alternative aviation fuel.

The project is primed by Swedish Biofuels partner LanzaTech, which has formed a team also
including Imperium Renewables, Battelle Pacific Northwest Division and Michigan Technological
University. It will combine Swedish Biofuels advanced processes for the conversion of alcohols
into fully synthetic, drop-in jet fuels with LanzaTech’s unique gas fermentation process for
converting waste gas resources to ethanol. The combined result is that Swedish Biofuels and
LanzaTech will produce jet fuel from industrial off gases, a completely new, non-food resource.

Swedish Biofuels Gasoline Patents Maintained in European Patent Court

25 March, 2011

Swedish Biofuels AB is pleased to announce that the Technical Board of Appeal of the European Patent Office has maintained the European Patent No. 1252268, “Method for Reducing the Vapor Pressure of Ethanol-Containing Motor Fuels for Spark Ignition Combustion Engines”.

The original hearing, when the patent was challenged by BP Oil International Ltd, took place on 9 July 2008. The result was in favor of Swedish Biofuels AB and the patent was maintained. BP chose to appeal the decision and during recent proceedings the Technical Board of Appeal maintained the patent, once again, against the appeal by BP.

Introduced in 2001, the method of the patent for reducing vapor pressure in ethanol containing motor fuels for spark ignition, or petrol engines, is highly effective in regulating fuel properties without any changes to standard engines.

With this victory, the Swedish Biofuels AB will also continue to innovate and vigorously prosecute infringements of its even broader intellectual property portfolio in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere.

Swedish Biofuels Diesel and Jet Fuel Patents Maintained in European Patent Court

14 January, 2011

Swedish Biofuels AB is pleased to announce that the Technical Board of Appeal of the European Patent Office has maintained the European Patent No. 1218472, “Motor Fuel for Diesel, Gas-Turbine and Turbojet Engines”.

The original hearing, when the patent was challenged by BP Oil International Ltd, took place on 17 July 2008. The result was in favor of Swedish Biofuels AB and the patent was maintained. BP chose to appeal the decision and during recent proceedings the Technical Board of Appeal maintained the patent, once again, against the appeal by BP.

Introduced in 2001, the method of the patent for mixing oxygen containing components in standard diesel, is highly effective in combining standard diesel together with components from other sources in particular from biomass. The resulting fuel properties do not require any changes to standard engines.

With this victory, the Swedish Biofuels AB will also continue to innovate and vigorously prosecute infringements of its even broader intellectual property portfolio in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere.

Swedish Biofuels Awarded Contract by Sweden’s Försvarets Materialverk, FMV

17 December, 2010

Swedish Biofuels AB is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract by Sweden’s Försvarets Materielverk, FMV, Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, involving its breakthrough jet fuel SB-JP-8.

The program with FMV for demonstration and deployment of the biological jet fuel for Saab Gripen fighter with the participation of Swedish and US Governments in addition to SAAB, Volvo Aero and GE.

Phase 1 of the program calls for fuel delivery planning, coordination, management and risk analysis.

Phase 2 involving the qualification and certification of Swedish Biofuels AB jet fuel for the Gripen is expected to follow on the successful completion of phase 1.
