Whitefox Announces its Sixth Successful ICE™ Start-up at E Energy Adams in Nebraska

Adams, NE, May 16, 2019 – Whitefox Technologies Limited is proud to announce its
sixth successful start-up of its Whitefox ICETM system at E Energy Adams in Adams,
Nebraska. This is Whitefox’s first installation in Nebraska, which takes the number
of states that Whitefox’s ICE solution is operating in to five.

E Energy Adams is an original 50 million-gallon ICM designed ethanol plant that
began operations in 2007. Since then they have continuously worked to improve
the efficiency of the plant and have also greatly increased their capacity. E Energy
Adams is the seventh highest producing plant in Nebraska. The Whitefox ICE™
system is sized to produce 75,000 gallons/day of 200 proof by taking various
recycle streams from the current plant, including the molecular sieve regenerate
stream.

Carl Sitzmann, CEO at E Energy Adams, stated, “We were searching for a way to
increase our capacity without having to add a whole new distillation system. The
Whitefox’s ICETM system was the answer. Their membrane technology allowed us to
increase our dehydration capacity and improve our energy efficiency at the same
time.”

Whitefox’s CEO, Gillian Harrison, said, “Working with Carl Sitzmann and the E
Energy Adams team has been a positive experience for all of us at Whitefox. This
was our largest installation to date and our teams worked closely to deliver this
project. It helped that Carl had previous experience of membrane technology from
other industries and his vision aligned with ours, which is to use technology to
continuously improve operations, profitability and sustainability. Together we are
helping to produce environmentally friendly, high performance fuel and add value
to the local rural economy.”

Nebraska is home to 25 ethanol plants and is the second largest ethanol producing
state in the country, with the capacity to produce more than 2.5 billion gallons.
According to the Nebraska Ethanol Board, these ethanol plants represent a $5
billion economic impact in the state and provide direct full-time employment for
more than 1,300 Nebraskans. Geographic position, abundant ethanol supply and
reliable, competitive rail transportation gives Nebraska a strategic advantage in
serving ethanol markets in the western U.S.
