BDR Technologies Inc.

BDR is a clean energy technology company that develops, designs and markets membrane reactor production systems for the global biodiesel market. BDR's technology can improve the economics of biodiesel facilities by significantly reducing oil conversion costs, improving yields and producing biodiesel that exceeds international standards at lower capital and operating costs than conventional technologies.

BDR's highly scalable modular "plug and play" technology can be employed in new biodiesel facilities to reduce CAPEX by 15-30% by eliminating or combining processing steps. It is also compatible with existing processes and can be used to retrofit and expand existing plants with zero or limited increase in plant footprint. The estimated payback period for such a retrofit/expansion is less than one year. By employing BDR's technology, manufacturers of biodiesel can produce extremely high quality glycerine and FAME (fatty acid methyl ether)/biodiesel that exceeds ASTM D6751-2009 and EN 14214 biodiesel product quality standards. As an example of the superb product quality, monoglyceride content in the biodiesel has been demonstrated to be less than EN 14214 maximum specification by a factor of 20 at 0.04% monogylcerides.

BDR will build a new 4 M L/year near commercial-scale market development facility in Ontario. At this facility, BDR's technology will be optimized to manage multiple feedstock types, confirm process economics and establish quality standards for its technology. BDR will offer "pipe-to-pipe" solutions for existing and new facilities by working with customers and engineering firms to help achieve their business goals.
