                    Project Background
•   Long standing relationship between WM and UNH.
•   WMNH/TREE currently has two LFG to Electricity plants producing 9
    megawatts of power. Waste Management has over 100 landfill gas to
    energy projects nationwide, and will build 60 more in the next 5 years.
•   Site is currently using approximately 4000 scfm of LFG and producing
    over 8000.
•   WM approached UNH regarding project concept.
•   Contract negotiated in 2006/2007. 10 year contract with options for
    renewal up to 7000 scfm of gas is committed to UNH if available above
    site power plant demands.

                         Project Details
•   12.7 mile, 12 inch HDPE pipeline travels along public roads, turnpike,
    and private rail right of way.
•   Processing plant located at landfill will remove CO2, H2S, and
    Siloxanes. Minimum methane content required is aprox. 82 %.
•   Two 3520 CAT engines will provide parasitic load for processing plant,
    site gas blowers, and site leachate pump station.
•   Plant will be designed, constructed, and operated by SCS Energy as
    contractor for UNH.

                       Project Financials
•   Total Project cost estimate is 44 million dollars
•   Project funded by UNH with WM contributing 1.2 million.
•   UNH pays WM for gas based on BTU’s after processing.
•   Pricing is based on Natural gas and electric indices depending on devise
    using gas.
•   UNH to sell Renewable energy credits from campus and WM from
    3520’s located at landfill.
                  Current Project Status
•   Pipeline was completed last Fall/Winter, by RH White.
•   Directional drilling was used to minimize wetland disturbances.
•   UNH was able to fast track permitting through state agencies and is
    exempt from local permitting.
•   Processing plant construction will begin this month with completion
    scheduled for Jan, 2009.
•   Turnkey has over 300 gas wells and over 200 of them have dedicated
    pneumatic pumps for dewatering into a separate force main.
