CEO Message Reflecting on Calendar Year 2011:
At Community Fuels, we have developed strong competitive advantages and are well positioned to capitalize on the trends spurring demand for biomass-based diesel.
In being one of the few continuously operating advanced bio-refineries in the U.S., we have successfully demonstrated the feasibility and reliability of our own commercially proven proprietary biofuel process technology. Unlike competitors using unproven technologies or licensed technologies from third-party developers, our own commercially proven proprietary technology enables us to modify our biofuel process as new raw materials develop and fuel standards evolve while avoiding ongoing licensing fees. Moreover, our unique ability to quickly adjust production volumes allow us to meet market demand efficiently, as does the location of our bio-refinery at the Port of Stockton in California, which is well positioned to serve major Western U.S. fuel markets and West Coast Ports that serve the emerging Asian Pacific fuel markets.
