					Executive Summary

“Waste to Energy”
Echo Energy Group, LLC, is a company prepared to begin implementation and construction of a controlled Solid Waste
Disposal (SWD) and Waste Tire Disposal conversion to Energy Project.

Echo Energy Group and associates have secured a significant 20 year Waste Tire contract from a major tire retailer. With
this contract in place, there is a planned expansion to replicate sixty (60) additional projects, similar to the above project, at
various locations throughout the U.S.

This Executive Summary outlines the extremely profitable plans on how this venture will operate from the time tires and
Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) are collected to the time the bi-products, including electricity. It also describes and details the
financial and economic elements of the process. Very conservative estimates have been used for all costs and revenues
associated with the Power Project, and Echo Energy Group expects to exceed the projections.

Total costs:       $82,590,000
Leasing            $28,000,000
                   $54,590,000 (includes 5% contingency)

                                                                                            st
To complete final preparations for the Power Project, construct and manage the 1 Phase and conduct the first 18
months of business operations, the Management Team of Echo Energy Group is requesting funding in the total
amount of $54,590,000. It is estimated that Echo Energy will be able to self fund the capital expenditures necessary
                   nd
to implement the 2 Phase of the project.


Introduction
The difficulties within the Gasification industry have been twofold: 1) Technological development has outpaced the regulatory
and financial verifications leading to unknown risks. 2) There has been a supply inconsistency or lack of the most desirable
kinds of waste. As more companies specializing in Gasification began entering the market, technical innovation increased,
providing better verification and predictability of Gasification performance. It is these innovations for which the Echo Energy
Group proprietary technology exploits and converts to profits. Additionally, communities and waste disposal companies have
improved collection, sorting and recycling efforts. The combination has created greatly improved performance of the
gasification industry and the investment opportunity presented in this Executive Summary.

The project developed by Echo Energy Group, will be built in two phases, installing first, a prefab modular “Gasification
Plant”. Two Gasification units will take 14 months to install and placed into operation. At this point in time tipping fee
revenues and electricity sales make the operation profitable on its own.
Echo Energy Group will use a proprietary mix of refuse and tires to provide the heat input necessary to run a steam powered
electrical generation turbine. Electricity sales revenue is guaranteed through a long term Power Purchase Agreement
(PPA), at an amazing $0.20 / kWh with a 2% annual escalation.

How It Works - Gasification is a process that heats and converts carbon-based feedstocks into a combustible fuel
comprised largely of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. In the gasifier, a limited amount of air is used to partially combust a
fraction of the fuel. The heat generated breaks down the remaining feedstock to form a gas, commonly called syngas or
producer gas. This highly combustible gas can be readily burned to provide process heat and steam or produce renewable
electricity.
Echo Energy Group will generate revenues from the following profit centers:
The collection, transportation, and disposal of MSW and tires
Off-take agreements for power produced
There are two aspects of the project that are beneficial for replicating additional plants around the country. The first being the
bi-products that are produced can be tailored to meet specific geographic demands and the second being the modularity and
transportability of the systems support a highly profitable cost efficient growth model for decentralization. The more units
installed the lower the cost per unit.

The opportunity presents itself for several reasons. Utilities are acknowledging under regulatory, operational and economic
constraints that there must be a diversification away from large central power plants to more distributive production closer to
population centers. There are huge costs and energy losses from transmission of electricity promoting a decentralization of
power production. These losses were historically protected by the utility and fossil fuel industries. Add in the aging of the
infrastructure and stresses within the transmission grid, raises significant reliability issues, and the timing is perfect for the
Echo Energy Group technology and projects.

The above described Power Project is the first of many that Echo Energy Group plans to replicate in various locations in the
U.S. and around the world as the conversion of “Waste to Energy” is much needed from an environmental standpoint. The
previously mentioned equipment providers which are stable with solid performance reputations are extremely excited about
partnering with Echo Energy Group and their proprietary model.




Business Description

                                                        The “waste to energy” project being developed and implemented by
                                                        Echo Energy Group is unique in several respects. The waste itself is
                                                        the only fuel/energy necessary to run the Gasification. When fully
                                                        operational, both systems work in synergy to improve cost efficiency. It
                                                        requires no initial or additional energy in any form to begin or maintain
                                                        the project. Secondly, Echo Energy Group long term relationships with
                                                        MSW and used tires feedstock providers will allow Echo Energy Group
                                                        to monopolize the marketplace. Traditionally there has been a lack of
                                                        reliable feedstock, negatively impacting profits. Several plants have
                                                        been shut down due to the lack of reliable feedstock. Also, the further
                                                        the feedstock is away from the processing location, the greater the
                                                        impact on costs. Just as with MSW, collection and sorting efficiency
                                                        and geographic plays a vital role in feedstock conversion or recycling.

                                                        Going forward, Echo Energy Group long term agreements with tire
                                                        recyclers and various landfills, will allow Echo Energy Group to
                                                        profitably open 60 locations throughout the U.S. using its technology.
                                                        Tire recyclers and landfills will actually pay Echo Energy Group for
                                                        their fuel although the tip fees from tire recyclers at $0.60 per tire does
decline each year $0.10 over a 6 year period, yet still provides a very profitable operation. Over the past four years Echo
Energy Group has developed strong relationships with the main technology providers in the industry and is in position to
utilize their proprietary waste to energy model for many years to come.

The Power Project is the first plant to be built. Echo Energy Group prototype model will be replicated in both company owned
plants throughout North America and Joint Venture arrangements throughout the world. Echo Energy Group is currently in
negotiations with two major international firms to co-develop additional projects. Echo Energy Group will provide the
management, engineering, equipment suppliers and consultancy to implement a Joint Venture/Franchise business model
whereby Echo Energy Group will garner 30% of the net revenue of all plants from their international JV partners.

MSW contracts generally run 20 to 30 years. As part of Echo Energy Group ongoing strategy, they believe it will be important
to contractually tie up landfills throughout the United States. Echo Energy Group is currently under negotiations with
numerous landfills facilities.

The process starts with their major tire supplier and various landfills transporting their used tires and refuse. A tire shredder
will be installed on leased property at the initial site. The tires will be unloaded into a bin(s) that feeds onto an incline
conveyor belt that drops the tires into the tire shredder. Once shredded, the tire chips are loaded unpackaged directly into
standard 9’ x 40’ shipping containers and then hauled via tractor trailer on board a transport ship, via a drop down ramp that
allows the driver to drive into the hull of the vessel and out again.

Pre- shredded used tires and MSW will be transported by shipping containers. Once unloaded, the MSW will be sorted and
any unusable metals will be removed. All unloading of refuse and tires will be conducted under sheltered warehouse
conditions and placed into appropriate bins for transport via conveyor belts. The Refuge Derive Fuel (RDF) is than mixed at
proper computerized ratios with the shredded tires, and runs through a modulated gasification machine. This mix will enter
the gasification plant, via conveyor belts, producing a syngas. The Gas is then used to heat a boiler that produces steam to
run the two 18 MW steam turbines, with the electricity to be sold to a Power Company. Echo Energy Group has tentatively
secured a 20 year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Echo Energy Group will receive tipping fees for the removal of refuse
from landfills and tires. Tipping Fees, as they are called, are the fees Echo Energy Group charges to dispose of the waste
products. Echo Energy Group has negotiated these fees and it is part of the profit center for the company. As an example,
Echo Energy Group will receive $97.00 per ton tipping fee from a landfill provider which will produce approximately a $25.00
per ton profit after transport and sorting.


Banking ERC’S (Banking Emission Reduction Credits) Improvements to the Project financials may be realized as a
result of modifications to the Equipment, Carbon Offsets and processing methodology. The technology has the potential to
produce additional products (e.g. manufactured gas and electricity and handle more difficult feedstocks (e.g. e-waste, MSW,
C&D, green waste), producing banking ERC’s / banking Emission Reduction Credits.




Industry and Market Overview
Without explanation, unless we change our course, mankind will be up to our eyeballs in rubbish, refuse, garbage and other
forms of waste materials. Many landfills are no longer accepting waste and those that can are cognizant of the regulatory
guidelines that each year, become more stringent, as humans discover the ill-effects of centralized waste disposal. The good
news is that Echo Energy Group and other technology providers in the market are changing the course by not only changing
technologies but are converting the negative impact from waste disposal into beneficial results.

Although traditional incineration facilities have been greatly improved over the years, they are still considered a “dirty”
technology as any gases and unburned particles are emitted directly into the atmosphere. Recycling, reuse and diversion still
leaves a biodegradable fraction and many waste products have historically been difficult and costly to recycle or discard.

The benefits of projects such as Echo Energy Group “Waste to Energy” Power Project are four fold. The first benefit is the
elimination or reduction of the environmental concerns associated with landfills which have been well publicized. As
presented in this report, eliminating the environmental concerns has the second benefit of creating profits. The third benefit is
a reduced cost to the consumer and waste tire producers while delivering needed bi-products. The final benefit is improved
national security necessary to safeguard our energy needs, and eliminate our dependence on foreign sources. We must
consider the costs of protecting oil producers and transport from the Middle East, South America and other parts of the world
and we must consider the increasing costs of oil itself as oil becomes more difficult to find and/or extract.
The decentralization of power production and transmission is vital to our national security interest and projects such as Echo
Energy Group effectively places these plants geographically closer to the waste collection. With large scale centralized
power production, if one transfer station or nuclear power plant is put out of commission by either natural or manmade
occurrences, its potential economic consequences can be severe. By decentralizing the production of power, it
geographically disperses the production and transmission so that when disastrous events do occur, the potential of
widespread disruptions are localized and economic impact minimized.

The leading technologies in the waste to energy sector produce syngas from a variety of waste feedstocks. The syngas can
be converted into electricity through a steam of gas turbine driven generator and transported to a local grid to provide more
cost efficient and reliable electricity to a community. The syngas can “also” be converted, via a catalyst, to produce liquid
fuel, ethanol, methanol, biodiesel or even jet fuel. This flexibility allows these technologies to meet specific geographic
needs. In a closed loop process, the feedstock is heated in an oxygen deprived chamber to produce a synthetic gas
(syngas). Because of the high heat associated with Gasification, large quantities of steam are produced which can be
converted into electricity. For the Echo Energy Group project, this syngas is used for electrical production and sold to the
grid during Phase 1.

As of 2001, Juniper Consulting in their industry report on gasification noted that there were 110 plants operating in 22
countries, installed by 41 suppliers, processing over 5 million tons of waste per year. By 2007, in the U.S. alone, according to
the EPA, there were 87 projects in operation processing 32 million tons per year. In Europe the number is even higher with
various feedstocks utilized.

Not all plants are profitable without carbon credits and other subsidies that are necessary revenue sources for some plants
throughout the world. For instance, a typical planned strategy of one firm is dedicated to the construction and operation of
nine biomass combined heat and power plants in Europe. The projected cost is estimated a £300 million ($450 million), with
a total generating capacity of only 90MW of electricity ($5 Million per Megawatt). That is enough to supply 140,000 homes,
powered with wood being supplied from local managed forest sources. Different feedstocks produce different levels of Btu
output and the cellulous material wood, as being utilized above does not generate the levels of heat as other forms of waste
materials like tires and plastics do. The profitability of Waste to Energy projects are therefore highly contingent on the
amount of heat energy that can be converted (conversion level) and therefore profitability is contingent on the feedstock(s)
sources being utilized.

Although the number of Municipal Solid waste (MSW) landfills has actually decreased over the past 18 years, from nearly
8,000 in 1988 to 1,754 in 2006, those being built are substantially larger in size and volume. Permitting and location
selection in relation to populations is today, much more difficult, costly and time consuming. Nobody wants the landfill in
their back yard and many cities have no more room. Therefore, many municipalities have to pay to transport their MSW
waste to other landfills and States.

Cities are growing at unprecedented rates. Half the Earth's populations now live in congested, urban regions. A mega city is
defined as a city with an estimated population of more than 10 million people. Currently, there are an estimated 23 mega
cities worldwide. By 2015, the number of mega cities is expected to grow to 36. That’s a lot of garbage that can be converted
into energy and products. The 10 largest mega cities in the world as of 2000 are: 1. Tokyo 26.4 million, 2. Mexico City 18.4
million, 3. Bombay, India 18.1 million, 4. Sao Paulo 17.8 million, 5. Shanghai, China 17.0 million, 6. New York City 16.6
million, 7. Lagos, Nigeria 13.4 million, 8. Los Angeles 13.1 million, 9. Calcutta, India 12.9 million, 10. Buenos Aires, Argentina
12.6 million

According to several sources converting refuse to energy, known as Thermal Conversion, will reduce landfill waste by up to
90% both in weight and volume. Many believe that landfills as we know them today will someday be an archaic remnant of
       th              st
the 20 and early 21 Century. Pacific Northwest National Laboratories (PNNL), a DOE funded laboratory, reviewed the
current state of different conversion technologies for waste to electricity and waste to biofuels. PNNL recommended that for
many types of feedstocks, gasification technology is best suited. The U.S. EPA is fully supporting various projects that
convert waste to energy. They see it as a much better alternative to landfills and acknowledge they emit far less pollutants
than the traditional waste to energy plants. But all gasification technology is not alike.
Many in the industry now understand the key to success is the separation of material waste types, into Refuse Derived Fuels
(RDF). Noncombustible materials such as glass and metals are generally removed prior to making RDF. The residual
material is sold as-is or compressed into pellets, bricks, or logs. RDF processing facilities are typically located near a source
of MSW, while the RDF combustion facility can be located elsewhere. Segregating waste types so the feedstock is thermally
converted to produce the highest Btu’s in the most efficient way while generating the least pollution, is most desirable.
Much of this has and will continue to occur as advancements in technology and collections continue. Waste tires, wood
chips, urban trimmings, C & D Waste, bio-refining residue, various agricultural residue, MSW, waste tires and Paper Sludge
are just a few among the many types of RDF available. Waste to energy, through gasification, has become the desired
method of conversion as it is considered one of the most efficient technologies. Once converted to either electricity or
syngas, it can be utilized in the manner best determined by the consumer and the bi-products can then be reused to better fit
the needs of producers.

Used tires dot the landscape at various locations around our planet. Statistics have shown that in just one year (1996), 80
million tons of scrap tires were disposed of worldwide and this number is increasing, yearly. According to World Wide Tire
Research in Canada, there are at least 30 million waste tires in the U.S. and growing annually. Automotive tires are made
from compounds derived from petroleum. Approximately 2 million auto and truck tires are manufactured every day
worldwide. The old tires are a huge problem; they're dumped, they're buried, they’re openly burned both intentionally and
unintentionally and they're piled into mile-high mountains. Additionally, tire dumps provide excellent breeding grounds for
mosquitoes, increasing the potential incidents of mosquito-borne diseases. According to Scrap Tire Management Council,
the tire recovery rate has increased from 26.2 percent in 2000 to 34.8 percent in 2007. In recent years, the quantity of tires
generated and recovered through various methods of recycling has remained relatively steady. However in 2007, even after
recycling there were still 3.2 million tons of tires that required discarding. The manufacturing of tires has increased from 1.1
million tons in 1960 to 4.9 million tons in 2007 (1.9 percent of total MSW) but since 2000, the production of tires has
remained fairly constant. Almost one third of all waste tires are used as tire derived fuel in the production of concrete and the
leading use of recycled tires is to provide road bed material that is mixed with asphalt or concrete. In California, estimates
are that in 2008, Californians generated 44.8 million waste tires. The beneficial use of 32.44 million tires represented a
recycling rate of 72.4 percent in 2008. However, California provides the highest level of subsidies in the U.S. for recycling
and it has come back to haunt them, since the 2008 economic meltdown, as they were the first State to reach insolvency. Of
course the other 27.6 percent of all waste tires went into tire dumps or other landfills.

Currently there are a number of companies around the world that are converting MSW and waste tires to various products.
                                                                                                                      st
Those that create the best and most efficient systems while minimizing pollutants will lead the way throughout the 21
century and there are significant world markets that provide market pricing and demand for the various bi-products produced.




Gasification Advantages - Thermal Conversion of MSW into Steam,
Cooling,
Electricity or Biofuels
Gasification Advantages –
    Simple Modular Design reduced transport costs
    400 Tons per day with small 12’ x 27’ footprint per unit

        Co‐ generate at local Landfills using syngases

The Problem –
     The high temperature combustion of Alkali metal compounds fouls boilers
               Potassium temps must stay below 1400F to prevent agglomeration
               Sodium temps must stay below 1400F to prevent eutectic formations
     High temperature corrosion is prevalent without expensive prevention if the metallurgy used is capable of
       withstanding corrosive compounds. Large amounts of excess air require expensive, large cleanup equipment and
       increases amount of NOx that is formed in combustor.
     Typical Combustor systems have large footprint

The solution –
     The separation of materials for recycling MSW to RDF
     Gasify the RDF to produce syngas in lieu of Combustion, <1300˚ F vs. 2000˚ +/- F
     Syngas firing with controlled air/oxygen levels
     Heat recovery for steam powered electrical generation
     Inert ash exits bottom of gasifier and sold or deposited in landfill
     Wet Electrostatic Precipitator for emission mitigation
              Best Available Control Technology
              ~98% reduction of criteria pollutants
     Cleaning combustion gas vs. combusted gas more economical

Typical Fuels and Blends – A distinct advantage of technology is its ability to use a wide variety of feedstocks to generate a
syngas suitable for power generation. These can include:
     Wood                                                             Ag Residue

     Refuse Derived Fuel                                                        o Rice Straw
     Bio-refining Residue                                                       o Oat Hulls
     Energy Crops                                                               o Sugar Cane Bagasse
     Tire Derived Fuel                                                Municipal solid Waste
     Landfill Gas                                                     Biosolids
                                                                       Paper Sludge

Product Flexibility – The gasification technology can be used in cooling, heating, steam power and bio-char production
applications and optimized for specific client needs. In the Power Project the primary product, syngas, will be directed
exclusively to power production. The bio-char will be recycled through the gasification process to further increase the
generating capacity for producing additional syngas fuel.


Verification of Process Methodology
The amount of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) needed for Phase 1 is projected at 525 tons per day with a 20%+/- reduction
from sorting activities to achieve the desired 420 tons per day net Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF). The 420 tons will be
combined with 180 tons of tires (70%/30%) to create the necessary steam output to achieve the projects conservative goal of
30 MW after 14 months. The following chart shows the thermal conversion rates for total Btu output as a function of waste
tire to RDF percentages. The objective was to verify the process and system will worked as designed.

Phase 1 of the “Waste to Energy” Power Project utilizes twin gasification systems. The chart shows the quantity of MSW and
Waste Tires required on a daily basis to provide the desired heat output of 35 MW per day. The chart also shows various
mixing ratios of MSW and tires on a per ton basis required to produce 35 MW of electricity. The project has a 5 MW cushion
based on very conservative estimates of parasitic load demands, efficiency and amounts of combined feedstock. The
flexibility of the system allows for the percentages of the mix to be altered to meet both output requirements and/or feedstock
availability to achieve higher revenues from both tipping fees and electricity sales.
The first column with 0% tires/100% MSW shows a total of 676 tons of feedstock is needed per day to generate 35 MW. In
column 2, waste tire content was increased to 20% of the combined mixture and the total tonnage necessary to produce the
desired 35 MW was reduced to 601 tons. As the amount of waste tires was increased to 50% of the total feedstock, a total
of only 560 tons was required to produce the 35 MW. Tires have a higher Btu conversion rate than MSW and therefore less
total tonnage of the mixture is required to obtain the desired Btu output.

The Chart also presents the conversion of waste in Btu’s/hr as well as steam in lbs/hour. The information is included to
demonstrate all the variables associated with the process of converting waste to energy. The chart shows the two Dresser
Rand steam turbines allotted for Phase 1 of the project require 350,000 lbs/hr to produce 35 MWs of electricity.

 The average weight of a passenger car tire is estimated at 20 lbs.

The advancements necessary to perform the gasification process were technical in nature but have been accomplished.
Understanding how heat conversion to produce power goes back to steam locomotion. Men shoveled coal into a stove that
heated a boiler to produce steam which propelled a cylinder to drive the locomotive. How efficient the conversion is
accomplished with minimal losses has been improved significantly by the Echo Energy Group team and is creating the
opportunity presented herein.

A complete range of steam fired turbine generator (TG) sets are available. These generator sets can produce power from
pulp and paper, sugar, hydrocarbons, palm oil, ethanol, and other biomass sources. A complete turbine generator
package(s) have been furnished, and will work closely with Echo Energy Group to meet our job-specific needs. Detailed
production guarantees are available upon request.



Strategic Growth Planning
             th
During the 14 month construction period for Phase 1 of the “Waste to Energy” Power Project, Echo Energy Group will have
the opportunity to continue the planning and development of additional sites both in the U.S. and abroad. Echo Energy
Group currently has multiple projects under consideration in the US and internationally that may get funding and
authorization prior to completion of the Power Project.

Validation of the business model through a fully operating plant complete with logistics, feedstock delivery and off-take sales
                                                                                                                        st
is a preferred method of providing the evidence that the technology and model are financially sound. In advance of 1
project success validation, physical testing, written commitments from major suppliers and historic data based on existing
systems gives the management team total confidence in the technological aspects of the project. This has driven the Echo
Energy Group team to source additional projects, as new locations, waste feedstock supplies and funding sources are
identified and secured.

Echo Energy Group will continue to target areas with reported waste problems associated with large quantities of MSW
and/or tires, limited storage/disposal space and inadequate utilization of desired feedstocks. This has already resulted in
interest in the Echo Energy Group approach from a number of sources. Arguably a universal problem, tires and MSW have
to be dealt with by every segment of the social and political spectrum and Echo Energy Group will continue to identify and
secure potential projects.

Echo Energy Group is utilizing three primary criteria to determine potential plant locations in the U.S. and abroad. Proximity
to landfills, waste tires and surrounding populations allows Echo Energy Group to determine adequate and problematic
                                                                                                                            nd
feedstock supplies. Proximity to and transportation infrastructure types such as rail, seaports and roadways is the 2
important criteria that allows Echo Energy Group to coordinate economical logistics to solve waste accumulation and off-take
sales for potential clients. The proximity to the electrical grid and natural gas pipeline injections stations are the third
important criteria that allows Echo Energy Group to utilize the technical flexibility their system offers. The system allows for
optimizing feedstock blends to produce various salable products to meet local market demand. This advantage is what sets
Echo Energy Group apart from the competition. There system can produce a blended syngas that can be sold at natural gas
injection stations or it can be used directly to run steam generators, as in the Power Project. They can alter the percentage
mix of Refuse Derived Fuels and tires to solve specific problems or meet other market demands.

Using these criteria, internationally, Echo Energy Group is currently working with several groups to coordinate the
implementation of plants at various locations and will continue sourcing additional prospects. Current discussions are being
conducted that will allow Echo Energy Group to take a consulting role in Joint Venture (JV) Partnership arrangements, taking
a percentage stake in each JV completed. The number of actual separate plants under the control of each JV Partner will be
determined on a case by case basis. Echo Energy Group is utilizing the private/public partnership model to source
controlling interests around the world and offering the advantages that Echo Energy Group and its technology have. By
targeting landfills, transportation providers,off-take buyers, tire wholesalers/retailers and governments, it will allow Echo
Energy Group to utilize this model to find capable JV Partners around the world.

Echo Energy Group will continue to work with their existing Original Equipment Manufacturers, feedstock suppliers, landfill
owners and government contacts to identify additional opportunities and where applicable, secure government subsidies or
grants. Echo Energy Group will continue to coordinate with various special interest and industry groups to promote the
system and its benefits. Once the first project is fully operational, it will provide great opportunities to circulate Press
Releases on a national and international basis through numerous sources.

Modularity and Portability allow the system to be deployed rapidly and cost efficiently. Having tested the emissions of the
system with multiple feedstock mixtures with favorable results, Echo Energy Group will provide potential clients, partners
and/or investors with standardized easy approaches to obtain required permits and secure feedstock and off-take
agreements. Echo Energy Group will continue to develop marketing strategies both in the U.S. and abroad, based on the
above described approaches and criteria and just as the Project was developed, Echo Energy Group can develop marketing
strategies based on potential prospects problems and requirements that their “Waste to Energy” system offers.

Other opportunities will present themselves as the Company grows. The Federal Government now pays tire recycling
companies $70.00 per ton to shred tires into what is called “crumb”. It can then be used, both in combination with asphalt
and concrete, for road bed construction and of course for gasification. The Echo Energy Group system can actually alleviate
and/or lower, in many instances, this cost to the government. The economic efficiency of the Echo Energy Group system
allows for the potential to become direct haulers from the source and add additional tire shredding operations. The retail tire
customer currently must pay an environmental impact fee of $2.00 per tire for disposal that Echo Energy Group can take
advantage of for both profitability and in ensuring larger feedstock streams.
