Vega Biofuels Places Order for Production of Bio-Coal

Company to Start Filling Orders for International Clients

NORCROSS, GA–(Marketwired – Jan 15, 2015) – VEGA BIOFUELS, INC., (OTC PINK: VGPR) announced today that the Company has placed an order for 3,000 tons of Bio-Coal for shipment to an international client.

Manufactured from timber waste using torrefaction technology, Bio-Coal has a high energy density of up to 13,000 BTUs/Lb and is considered a renewable energy fuel that meets the Renewable Portfolio Standards and Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) in the United States.

Vega recently announced that the Company was working with Colorado based, Vencor International, Inc. to test Vencor’s torrefied wood product to see if it met the strict specifications to be used as Bio-Coal. The independent testing was successful and Vega has now issued a Purchase Order to Vencor to produce 3,000 tons of Bio-Coal. Production is scheduled to begin later this month. The deal is valued at approximately $600,000.

“This is a great day for our company,” stated Michael K. Molen, Chairman/CEO of Vega Biofuels, Inc. “We now look forward to filling the orders that we have in hand and generating revenue as we move forward in the new year. We are very impressed with Vencor’s torrefied wood product. It exceeded the required specifications to be called Bio-Coal. They recently increased their production capacity and are now capable of filling our orders and shipping product to our international clients. We anticipate this being the first of many orders of this type. We have been able to secure several deals like this, but production has been the delay. Hopefully, that is now behind us and we can continue to grow our business and bring additional value to our shareholders.”

Vega Biofuels Enters Into Agreement to Increase Bio-Coal Production Capacity to Meet Demand

NORCROSS, GA–(Marketwired – Dec 17, 2014) – Vega Biofuels, Inc. (OTC PINK: VGPR) announced today that the Company has entered into a five year Agreement that will increase the Company’s Bio-Coal production capacity.

Vega recently announced it has entered into a Joint Venture to build and operate a manufacturing plant in Allandale, SC to produce a product called Bio-Coal. When completed, the manufacturing plant will use special torrefaction technology to produce the Company’s green-energy Bio-Coal product from timber waste that will then be sold to power companies around the world. Bio-Coal has a high energy density of up to 13,000 BTUs/Lb and is considered a renewable energy fuel that meets the Renewable Portfolio Standards and Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) in the United States.

The current production capacity for the Company’s Joint Venture facility in Allendale is not sufficient to meet the current demand for Vega’s Bio-Coal. Therefore, the Company entered into an Agreement with Colorado based, Vencor International, Inc. that will provide Vega with the necessary product to meet the exceeding demand for its Bio-Coal. The Agreement will allow Vega to begin filling orders prior to the completion of its Allendale facility. The Agreement will continue to supplement the production capacity of the Allendale plant for the next five years.

“We’ve been very clear that the production capacity at the Allendale plant will not be enough to meet the demand for our Bio-Coal product,” stated Michael K. Molen, Chairman/CEO of Vega Biofuels, Inc. “In time I believe the production capacity at the Allendale plant will be increased and catch up to the demand, but in order to fill the orders that we have in hand and allow us to continue marketing the product, we needed to find a source to supplement our production capacity. We look forward to working with Vencor and anticipate having product to ship after the first of the year. This is a huge development for our Company. Revenue generated from the first order of 3,000 tons will allow us to complete our commitment to the Allendale joint venture.”

Torrefaction is a partial carbonization process that takes place at temperatures between 475 – 575º in a low oxygen environment which makes the physical and energetic properties of the biomass much more comparable to traditional coal. The biomass is then compressed into briquettes called Bio-Coal to be sold to the end user. Torrefaction has the added benefit of reducing or eliminating undesirable volatiles, such as nitrous oxides and sulfur dioxides and is considered carbon neutral to the environment. Existing coal-fired power plants do not need to retrofit their existing plants to accommodate the torrefied Bio-Coal.
