July 28,
2010, Toronto, ON – Core Biofuel Inc., a Canadian company that is working on an
advanced biomass to gasoline production process, has engaged London,
Ontario-based Recat Technologies to complete a pilot of its gasoline production
reactors. The planned pilot activities are for Core to demonstrate the critical
gasoline production steps in its MKS conversion process. The data from the
pilot process will provide the specifications for the catalysts to be used in its
gasoline production process, as well as the design parameters required by
equipment fabricators to design and build the gasoline reactors needed for
commercial production facilities.

Dr. Hugo
de Lasa, president and founder of Recat commented, “Core Biofuels’ initiative
is a unique project of great vision. I am pleased to collaborate with this
Canadian-based company in developing and setting up a technology that will
address the production of bio-gasoline by using wood waste feedstock from pine
beetle damaged trees, forestry slash, and mill residues in British Columbia.”
