Biomass Market Opportunity "Green Energy" is the current buzzword in the industrialized world.
Europe. Most Countries in Europe mandate the increased use of renewable energy for domestic and industrial use. For example, in some regions of Austria 80% of new homes already use biomass for heating and the UK building code for sustainable housing mandates 100% of new homes by 2012 to use renewable energy. Wood pellet biomass is the most accepted and most feasible source of this energy and demand for wood pellets in Europe is forecast to increase 10 fold over the next decade from current estimated 7.5 million tons per year to 75 million tons per year (or $1,725,000,000 to $17,250,000,000).
USA. The USA represents the largest potential for market development in the renewable energy field. President Barack Obama plans to double the use of renewable energy starting 2009 and the Department of Energy has issued $200 Million in requests for Industry for small biomass projects and $80 billion for larger federal institutional procurement. The proximity to vast supplies of raw material makes biomass is a natural source of renewable Energy for the US in its drive to become energy independent from foreign sources of fossil fuels. Sea 2 Sky is ideally positioned to spearhead the drive for wood pellets to become a significant part of the “greening” of the US Energy supply.
Canada. The wood pellet industry is in its infancy with great demand potential. Canada is blessed with significant biomass opportunities. Since 2000, British Columbia has had an increasing opportunity to develop a biomass pellet industry due to a large portion of its forests suffering from a pest, the Mountain Pine Beetle. Using the dying wood for the production of pellets before it decays and releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere has proven to be the best solution. British Columbia, an emerging user of pellets, has the potential to become one of the largest wood pellet producers in the world and in addition to supplying its own markets, can ship cost effectively to many markets around the globe. Recently, the Canadian Government has committed to align its environmental policies with those of the US. This will result in calls for carbon neutral sources of energy in the very short term.
International. There is a significant movement away from fossil fuels and towards renewable fuel forms. Due to concerns over global warming, compliance with the Kyoto Protocol, peak oil and political pressures from Russia and the Middle East, most industrialized nations are desperate for solutions to secure energy supply, and are turning increasingly to renewable sources, with biomass being one of the most readily available and economically viable.

In order to meet the Kyoto protocols, Europe has been diversifying its energy needs. Biomass is significant part of European energy production in both heating and electricity needs. Over the last year, Russia has exerted some political pressure in the energy sector by shutting off Gas supplies to vast areas of western, central and eastern Europe. With the increasing demand, many European Countries and companies are looking for other areas of secure supply, and biomass is well established as a reliable source of renewable energy in Europe. Due to the goals in place in Europe for the reduction of greenhouse gases, and the mandate to increase the portion of renewable energy used, biomass, and wood pellets in particular are in an ideal position to take a large portion of that share.
Creating a secure supply source Unlocking British Columbia source of supply Sea2sky’s strategic advantage Politics. Traditionally, BC Canada’s wood supply has been controlled by the government of BC and major wood producers. In 1997, the Supreme Court of Canada pronounced a line of reasoning that inserted a 3rd stakeholder into the ownership of the wood supply the indigenous people of BC, known as the First Nations. Over the last ten years, these three groups have been trying to figure out a way to work together
Sea 2 Sky is the first company to manage to create a mechanism to combine these interests to unlock the ability to lock up supply by:
•Giving First Nations share ownership and representation in downstream markets by investing in Sea 2 Sky thus allowing access to markets they could not previously reach. For First Nations, Sea 2 Sky is able to create a mechanism to create on reserve work skill productive jobs and respect. First Nations peoples respect the earth and now Sea 2 Sky can help them harvest their natural resources in this way. •Giving capital markets security of liquidity of investment in areas of political uncertainty. •Giving government the ability to unlock carbon credits and environmental progress.
The Sea2sky supply source
British Columbia has tremendous untapped potential for woody biomass. This includes unused Mill residue (sawdust, shavings) as well as residues from existing sustainable forestry operations such as logging slash, and trees unusable for the productions of construction lumber. In addition to this, since the late 1990's, a large portion of the pine forests in B.C. have been infested with the Mountain Pine Beetle, a pest that quickly makes the tree unusable for constructionl lumber, but is perfectly suitable for wood pellets. Based on a Government funded study, between mountain pine beetle infected wood, mill residue, current sustainable harvesting,and improved forest practices the combined volume available for wood pellets in BC is a total of approximately 28,000,000 tons (being potentially upwards to 6.4 billion dollars in current market value) per year for the next 15 to 20 years. Considering that currently only about 3 million tons per year are used to produce wood pellets, the potential is huge. How much wood is there, you ask. Well, think of the State of Virginia – and now you know.
The infestation in BC is the largest such Pellet-able biomass region in North America and likely the world. Currently Sea 2 Sky has engaged supply sources that will bring us close to the top of Pellet Producers in North America with a market potential of 1.44 million tones of pellets per year for estimated revenue, base, based on current market prices, of $331,000,000 per year.

Europe is desperate for politically safe energy supplies (away from political intrigue).
The largest biomass supplier in North America is British Columbia and Sea 2 Sky is the first public company in the biomass industry in North America able to access First Nations controlled biomass regions due to its professional native management practices to bring those resources into the international energy sector and providing a way for those First Nations to participate in the market.
Sea 2 Sky plans to brand itself as a quality supplier of pellets for delivery initially to Europe and then into the expanding US market.
Sea 2 Sky has, subject to delivery:
•Pending UK master distribution agreement with large, well established Pellet packaging and distributing Company in Liverpool, pending purchase agreement with well established UK Buyer; •Pending purchase agreement with buyer for the Asian market; •Pending purchase and/or distribution agreements in Austria, Germany, Spain and Scandinavia; •Contacts and discussions underway with other buyers and distributors in Europe, Australasia and Asia. Market potential exists for well over 1,500,000 tons of pellets commencing delivery in 4th Quarter 2009 with the constraint to fulfill being capitalization to establish mills to manufacture pellets.
Upon full funding, projected annual revenues are estimated to exceed $330 million.
New Markets - USA
US President Obama has issued a mandate that 20% of the US energy needs to come from renewable sources within 5 years and is ready to fund the research to do so.
Sea 2 Sky is looking to enter into a joint agreement with James Trading Company(JTC is a private initiative owned by our director Henry James) as JTC can access special government set-a-side contracts in the biomass sector and can assign portions of these contracts, with a fee of 15% to Sea 2 Sky. JTC has designations as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned business, HUB zone business and American Indian business.
Through JTC, the untapped market potential available for Sea 2 Sky o sell pellets into is potentially $378 billion dollars per year (for all products, not just biomass, and depending on government market demand). As well, Sea 2 Sky and JTC will target military and Department of Energy designated Prime Contractors who have been given $200 million grants for biomass refineries in the US from the Department of Energy, United States of America.
Our research manager, Ed Hoessman’s extensive government procurement experience will assist us in meeting this market place.
New International Markets
There is a significant movement away from fossil fuels and towards renewable fuel forms. Due to concerns over global warming, compliance with the Kyoto Protocol, peak oil and political pressures from Russia and the Middle East, many nations are pursuing various forms of renewable energy. Various options exist but Sea 2 Sky is aware of and is pursuing market options in New Zealand, India and China.

Sea 2 Sky Targets $97 Billion Institutional and Industrial Market for Wood Pellets and Related Products Through a Joint Venture With Henry James and Gateway Associates LLC of the Lummi Nation On Wednesday June 3, 2009, 8:00 am EDT Related:Sea 2 Sky Corporation FERNDALE, WASHINGTON--(MARKET WIRE)--Jun 3, 2009 -- Sea 2 Sky Corporation (OTC BB:SSKY.OB - News), a leading edge Renewable Bio-Energy Company focused on delivering alternative energy solutions to Fortune 1000 companies, Governmental agencies and Countries around the globe, announced today that it has entered into a comprehensive joint venture agreement with Gateway Associates LLC, a Company controlled by Mr. Henry James of the Lummi Nation. This agreement brings together distinctive market access rights to manufacture and distribute Wood Pellets to Institutional and Industrial Markets for Sea 2 Sky Corp. in a manner that has never been achieved to date. As part of this agreement, Gateway's network will facilitate access to the Institutional and Industrial markets based on its and others Special Category Businesses Rights designations and its status in the Foreign Trade Zones Act of 1934. Institutional access to markets includes cumulative mandates set by the United States of America Federal Government guidelines that amounts to 23% of the total US Federal budget. Industrial market access often requires similar percentages as the Institutional market guidelines to be eligible for continued contracting with the US Government. Both Sea 2 Sky and Gateway have determined that a substantial opportunity exists in the Wood Pellet market and are jointly co-operating to satisfy the unmet market demand. Based on current market evaluations, up to 17 percent of the US Federal procurement budget ($425 Billion approx.) is yet open to be met by Special Category Business businesses like those contained in Gateway's network. The Industrial market of unmet market demand is of similar size.
"We are very pleased and honored to be working with Mr. Henry James of Gateway Associates and his extensive network," said David Siebenga, President and CEO of Sea 2 Sky Corporation. "With this agreement now in place, we obtain a significant strategic advantage to aggressively market our products with and to both the Institutional and Industrial markets in what appears to be an open market window of over $97 Billion dollars. The wood pellet market's unmet demand can now be fulfilled while providing strong futures for members of the Lummi Nation and many Indigenous peoples worldwide."
The wood pellet market is considerable in size internationally with Europe and Asia having substantial multi-Billion dollar product requirements. The North American market demand is vast and growing daily with increased pressure from Industry and Governments to reduce energy waste and carbon emissions. One method that is increasingly being evaluated and implemented is the use of wood pellets both commercially and residentially to heat/cool and provide energy requirements in a Carbon Neutral manner. In addition the use of Carbon Credits is now international in scope and provides many opportunities to the Industry to become socially responsible and reduce their "Carbon Footprint". With the Kyoto Protocol framework in place and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) mandates and administration in effect, Sea 2 Sky is committed to bringing ethical standards and production methods to this growing market.

About Foreign Trade Zones, Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Zones and Domestic Sovereign Indian Nations
Foreign Trade Zones (FTZs) were created in the United States to provide special customs procedures to U.S. plants engaged in international trade-related activities. Duty-free treatment is accorded items that are processed in FTZs and then re-exported, and duty payment is deferred on items until they are brought out of the FTZ for sale in the U.S. market. This helps to offset customs advantages available to overseas producers who compete with domestic industry. The Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board (composed of representatives from the U.S. Departments of Commerce and Treasury) has its operational staff in the International Trade Administration's Import Administration. FTZs are considered to be outside of U.S. Customs Territory for the purpose of customs duty payment. Therefore, goods entering FTZs are not subject to customs tariffs until the goods leave the zone and are formally entered into U.S. Customs Territory. Merchandise that is shipped to foreign countries from FTZs is exempt from duty payments. This provision is especially useful to firms that import components in order to manufacture finished products for export. There is no time limit on goods stored inside a FTZ and certain foreign and domestic merchandise held in FTZs may be exempted from state and local inventory taxes. This allows firms to minimize their costs while their products are waiting to be shipped. In addition, quota restrictions are in some cases waived for items entering an FTZ; however, the restrictions would apply if the items were to enter the U.S. market. A variety of activities can be conducted in a zone, including assembling, packaging, destroying, storing, cleaning, exhibiting, re-packing, distributing, sorting, grading, testing, labeling, repairing, combining with foreign or domestic content, or processing. Manufacturing and processing require specific FTZ Board approval, however.
Sea 2 Sky Corp. also is able to locate itself on the Lummi Indian Nation HUB Zone lands. This location allows Sea 2 Sky Corp. with Gateway to apply for and possibly obtain additional advantages through government tax reductions and incentives for its operations.
