China New Energy Ltd

Joint Bio-ethanol Venture

RNS Number : 3219T
China New Energy Ltd

5 December 2011

China New Energy Limited

("CNE" or the "Company" or the "Group")





Series of significant contracts expected



China New Energy Limited (AIM: CNEL), the engineering and technology solutions provider to the bioenergy sector, is pleased to announce that Guangdong Zhongke Tianyuan New Energy Science and Technology Co., Ltd ("ZKTY"), its wholly owned operating subsidiary, has entered a strategic agreement with Jilin Ethanol Industrial Company Limited ("JEIC"), and Jilin City Keda Applied Technology Development Limited ("JKDAT") to form a joint venture company ("JV"), Jilin Tianyi Biochemical Development Company Limited ("Tianyi") to exploit and commercialise technology and engineering solutions in the field of bio-ethanol production. ZKTY owns 34% of Tianyi while JEIC and JKDAT own 51% and 15% respectively.  


JEIC was recently formed to amalgamate a number of inefficient state-owned ethanol producers in Jilin Province. JEIC currently has an annual corn processing capacity of 2,000,000 tons, annual ethanol production capacity of 600,000 tons and a 25% shareholding over a further 500,000 tons of annual biofuel grade ethanol capacity. JEIC is targeting to increase its own annual production of ethanol to 1,000,000 tons by 2013, thereby becoming the largest ethanol producer in Asia.


JKDAT is an industrial biotechnology company in the development and commercialisation of enzymatic bioprocess, or the production of sugar from starchy materials through the use of enzymes.  


Under the agreement Tianyi will, through combining JKDAT's strength in enzymatic bioprocess and ZKTY's strength in fermentation and engineering, exploit its advanced technology to provide a superior feedstock treatment and fermentation process which will be used in the full scale commercial production at a JEIC facility in China. Based on the validation of the technology, Tianyi intends to scale up to exploit the technology in the rest of China and internationally.


Mr. Zhaoxing Tang, Chief Executive Officer of CNE, commented: "This strategic collaboration is only the first step in anchoring our relationship with JEIC as, over time, we expect to negotiate and secure additional and new contracts. We understand that JEIC has budgeted capital expenditure of not less than RMB280 million (£28.0 million) for 2012 and so ZKTY expects to secure significant new contracts next year to increase/modify JEIC production capacity and improve efficiency. In the medium term, we intend, by leveraging and expanding on our relationship with JEIC, to generate new and recurring revenue streams through the provision of high margin products and services in the areas of Energy Management Conservation, Yeast Formulation and Management and Waste Management."


Mr. Weijun Yu, Executive Chairman of CNE, commented: "This collaboration agreement reflects CNE's market leadership position in providing unique and integrated solutions to the bio-ethanol industry in China. JEIC is in an excellent position to participate in the strong growth that is expected from China's ethanol industry.  Its  current ethanol production capacity amounts to circa 10% of China's total and this share is expected  to increase over the next two years making it the largest ethanol operator in China, if not the whole of Asia."


Mr. Yu added: " We are excited and confident that our unique business model and strong market position can be scaled up and replicated elsewhere in China and around the world."
