03/28/2012 - WIT Announces 2011 Results

Claude Carles, President of ‘The Terminal’, announced today that the Company had an after-tax consolidated loss of $246,000 in Fiscal 2011, primarily the result of reduced seeded acres due to significant flooding in most of southeast Saskatchewan last year. The flooding impacted all business units last year, with only 20 to 30% of the normal acres being seeded. Both grain handling and crop input sales were down significantly. While grain volumes will be lower in 2012 until the new crop comes off, expectations are for a strong spring in the crop inputs business, as farmers look to maximize production after two consecutive years of reduced seeded acres. “Our staff worked hard throughout the year to help our customers manage these conditions. The continuing strong support of our customers has allowed Weyburn Inland Terminal to be a profitable, farmer owned and directed Company for many years” said Carles. “This is the first time since 1985 that we have not been profitable, and clearly the weather events last year were insurmountable both for farmers and WIT.” The Company paid dividends of $1,354,000 to shareholders in 2011.

12/30/2011 - GPHH L.P. Sanctions Final Project toward Completion of a Patented Integrated bioRefinery™ in the Fall of 2012

Hairy Hill, AB -- Growing Power Hairy Hill L.P. (“GPHH”) has defied the odds and the current global economic malaise. GPHH is now constructing the final module of its visionary Integrated bioRefinery™. This last project is a long-planned ethanol plant to be built adjacent to the earlier-announced (March, 2010) bioGas facility expansion.
Upon completion, the Integrated bioRefinery™ at Hairy Hill, Alberta, Canada will be the world’s largest such facility, and its output is expected to be the lowest-“carbon footprint” ethanol in the world. The overall capital asset will be a $100+ million facility producing ultra-low carbon fuel ethanol, high quality cattle feed, bioFertilizer (pathogen, weed & disease-free), and green energy (from both agricultural and municipal organic waste).
GPHH’s fuel ethanol will easily exceed the most stringent LCA thresholds, such as California's proposed Low Carbon Fuel Standard or LCFS, as well as emerging European limits on carbon content for liquid fuel. In certain jurisdictions (e.g. USA), this production method would even lead to the highly coveted, highly valuable Advanced BioFuel designation. This is a great achievement given that there is no technology risk because it is creatively combining—in a patented manner—older, proven technologies.
Starting approximately August of 2012, GPHH will be buying 110,000 metric tonnes of grain from local area farmers each and every year. If there is a future expansion of the plant, this number could rise. As well, GPHH will remain open to taking municipal organic waste or byproducts of other processes into its energy-creation process in exchange for a tipping fee. Examples of waste other than feedlot manure are glycerin from the making of biodiesel, or slaughter waste, or beverage manufacturing byproducts, or the contents of municipal green boxes being diverted away from landfills.
