Major Export Customers Coking Coals Strong demand for premium low ash coking coals, have produced Solid Energy’s core markets in Japan, China, India, South Africa and Brazil. Japan China Japan America India Specialist Coals Special low ash coals from Solid Energy have been used in Activated Carbon and Silicon Metal Industries in Japan, North America and Europe for over 20 years. Japan: 25 Years India Chile RSA Brazil Australia Thermal As a result of new mines, thermal coal supply will continue to increase in conjunction with ongoing growth.
Renewable Energy Business · Solid Energy's Renewable Energy portfolio has three businesses – - Biodiesel - Natures Flame - Switch · Solid Energy’s increasing presence in the bioenergy sector supports national energy objectives of increasing security and affordability by using our indigenous resources while reducing energy-related emissions.
Biodiesel • The aim is 70 million litres pa (50% of New Zealand biofuels target) in three years. Building new production plant near Christchurch. Stage one output = 15 million litres pa. Feedstock oilseed rape and used cooking oil. “Good biodiesel”
Switch · Integrated energy systems for homes and businesses. Nationwide distribution network. Leading distributor of solar hot water heating (Apricus brand) and supplier of biomass central heating systems. Natures Flame · Pellets made from waste wood. Currently developing third plant in Taupo (existing near Christchurch and Rotorua). Largest producer of wood pellets in the Southern Hemisphere. Planning exports.
New Energy Business · Coal seam gas – extract methane from deep coal seams. First project in Waikato, currently appraising potential. Could be as big as Kupe (300 PJ). · Underground coal gasification – gasify deep coal “in situ” and pipe the resulting ‘syngas’ to the surface. Successful projects in Australia, South Africa, former Soviet Union. Access to leading technology. Looking at a pilot in Waikato. Could be enough gas to run one of more generating units the size of Genesis’ e 3 p or Contact’s Otahuhu C stations.
New Energy Business continued · Coal to liquids (Southland lignites) - proceeding with feasibility study. Could replace most of New Zealand’s imported diesel, provide energy security, increase New Zealand’s economic competitiveness and benefit New Zealand’s balance of payments. Many options available to manage the CO 2 footprint from such a plant including purchasing credits, forestry offsets and carbon capture and storage. · CO 2 Emissions Reduction - multiple initiatives in progress including carbon capture and storage by forest sequestration and geosequestration. Involved in New Zealand international activities. Founding partner and owner of demonstration and storage project at Otway, Victoria, Australia.
