Outotec to provide a renewable energy solution for a bio-ethanol facility in
Iowa, USA

Outotec has agreed with a major cellulosic ethanol producer on the design and
delivery of a renewable energy solution for a bio-ethanol facility in Iowa,
USA. The order has been included in Outotec's Q4 2012 order intake and its
value will not be disclosed.

The customer's bio-ethanol facility is among the first commercial scale
cellulosic bio-ethanol facilities in the United States. It is expected to
produce up to approximately 95 million liters of cellulosic bio-ethanol per
year. With Outotec's fluidized bed energy system the bio-ethanol facility will
also cogenerate renewable energy of almost 80 t/h of saturated steam which is
used in the process.

Outotec's scope of delivery covers the fluidized bed energy system technology,
engineering and proprietary equipment for the boiler island from metering bin
to stack, with delivery scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of
2014. The plant is designed to produce energy from residual cellulosic ethanol
wet cake and by-products using Outotec's advanced staged gasification
technology. In addition, Outotec will provide installation and start-up
advisory services.

"This order supports our strategic target to apply our technologies to
interesting growth areas, such as renewable energy production, with high
horizontal technological synergies. We are excited to contribute with our
renewable energy technology to goal of making cellulosic bio-ethanol a viable
commercial reality. Through recently acquired Energy Products of Idaho - EPI -
Outotec has pioneered in the area of biomass combustion and gasification and
has delivered over one hundred renewable energy solutions. We can offer our
customers sustainable solutions for turning waste to energy and valuable
products, and thus reduce environmental impacts such as greenhouse gas
emissions", says Outotec CEO Pertti Korhonen.
