Investment summary

Leaf Resources (LER) announced on 26 April that it is one step closer to deploying its first commercial facility in Malaysia. Following the Malaysian government's decision to locate a biomass processing hub in the state of Sarawak, LER and its JV partner, Claeris, have identified a specific site and commenced the application process. Additionally, Leaf is in talks with potential EPC contractors about undertaking a full 'FEL3' engineering study on the feasibility of the plant, following a successful independent engineering review of the Glycell technology and a positive 'FEL2' report on the front-end loading system.

Industry outlook

Legislative changes and public and consumer goods manufacturer support are opening up renewable chemical markets. LER's Glycell breakthrough technology allows cellulosic sugars to be produced at US$200/t. In the fermentation stages to renewable chemicals, production costs can be lower than from petroleum-based feedstocks, even at low oil prices.
