OTHER LINKS GIVING BACKGROUND DATA RELATED TO COMPANY PLANS, DIRECTION OF THE MARKET FOR CANOLA OIL, ETC.:
"The oil produced is a COPA Type III which can be sold to food processors for additional refining or because it meets or exceeds specifications required to produce ASTM D6571 standard for retail bio-diesel and is sold at the retail pump located on the premises, or is manufactured into value added retail products on the premises."
REGINA PROCESSING PLANT
The operations of CPOW/General Bio Energy are located within the city limits of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada at 1620 McAra Street. This manufacturing facility comprises a rented building and land on a 1.5 acre corner property with an 8,800 square foot manufacturing plant on site. The facility has a fully certified weigh scale and silo grain storage for more than 100,000 bushels of input storage as well as shed and open-air storage for more than 2000 Metric Tonnes ('MT') of processed oilseed meal.
CPOW/GBE's plant is Western Canada's first retail Bio-Diesel Fueling station and contains all the primary assets of the company.
The manufacturing facility has a rated capacity to generate a total annual production of oil on a current run rate of 150 MT of crushing capacity equal to 19.7 million liters (approximately 18, 250 MT) and approximately 30,000 MT of meal.
The manufacturing facility has the capacity to generate a total annual production of biofuel on current run rates equal to 19.7 million (18,250 MT). Additionally, our Biofuel processors have a capacity to exceed25 million liters of fuel production capability. We estimate future production capacity will reach 450 MT crush capacity (approximately 59.6 million liters of oil / biofuel) and approximately 108,000 MT of meal annually, and biofuel production will be enhanced to match the oil supply capacity.
CPOW/GBE's plant has 150 MT/Day of oil seed crushing capacity based on a proprietary process that utilizes a double crush mechanical process with a "Hydro Jacket Heated Seed Entry" system that maximizes oil extraction to more than 90% and creates an oil seed meal capable of being pelletized, further processed to manufacture pet or other livestock feeds, extract proteins, or shipped raw due to its dry non-compacting properties.
"The oil generated from the crushing process can be further processed using a "waterless" processing method that, through low heat and no pressure, converts Bio Oil to Biodiesel."
"The company has both a prototype and a reengineered second generation biofuel processors on site. The capacity of these two processors when combined is greater than 20 - 30 Million liters per year. The processors are shielded in a firewalled separate location inside the main facility, but are sufficiently portable to be rapidly deployed to other locations."
For most of 2009, the company crushed camelina on a toll basis for Sustainable Oils, who are currently supplying the U.S. Military with camelina based bio-jet fuel.

A design with no moving parts, a unique design
increases efficiency and shear chemicals with
vapour pressure higher than water tend to come out
of solution in the vacuum chamber and directly enter
the vapour within the cavitation bubbles. Bubbles
collapse with minimal damage to equipment.
Vacuum inlet allows for mixing liquids and entraining
Easily scalable (from 40 Litres per min.
to thousands of Litres per min.)
Continuous flow, extremely low capital cost,
high-tech next generation biofuel production
process through Hydraulic cavitation
The GBE system is not reliant on water for
operation, making it a real solution for use
in remote locations or dry climates.
Scalable in design, the plant can be grown
to massive infrastructures or scaled down to
fit onto the back of flat bed trucks
(extending its potential to military, developmental
and recovery applications)
The result of our designs has meant that GBE can protect
its investors and shareholders with some of the best
margins in the industry. Including Canadian Patent 2408551
for Canola Meal Fish Food.
The shareholder owned and patented design can be
installed and processing in 90 days. This means smaller
plants and development projects can provide ROI in
relatively short time frames.
GBE has secured licensed rights to next generation
biomass gasification and biodiesel processing systems.
GBE has established a model unlike
any of our competitors that reflects
a coremargin of +28%
Its financial model is based on a
single input with multiple revenue
