June 24, 2011 – Vancouver-based Dynamotive
is increasing its shareholding in Melbourne, Australia-based Renewable Oil
Corporation (ROC) as part of a joint development agreement. The agreement
builds on a range of activities by the parties over several years, and the past
twelve months in particular:

  • Upgrading of Dynamotive’s pyrolysis oil to
    mobile fuels for a range of transport applications. The upgrading process is
    being evaluated by IFP Energies Nouvelles of France and may lead to agreements
    for its development and commercialization. ROC would receive an
    undertaking from Dynamotive that it would receive licenses for industrial
    bio-oil upgrading units on similar commercial terms as other parties.
  • Development of pyrolysis oil as a fuel for
    large diesel engines suitable for marine and power applications.
  • Work by ROC to shortlist sites in Australia
    that offer stable and competitively priced supplies of wood feedstock for
    commercial plants. This includes non-binding memoranda of understanding with
    three feedstock suppliers.
  • Work by ROC with the Future Farm Industries
    CRC, an organization for the promotion of mallee eucalypts as a new tree crop
    on farms across the Australian wheat belt. The two are co-operating to develop
    industrial production of biofuels in Western Australia with a major farm
    forestry program that has the potential to provide sustainable biomass for many
    biofuel plants.
