About Synthesis Energy Systems, Inc.

SES provides technology, equipment and engineering services for the conversion
of low rank, low cost coal and biomass feedstocks into energy and chemical
products. Its strategy is to create value through providing technology and
equipment in regions where low rank coals and biomass feedstocks can be
profitably converted into high value products through SES' proprietary
fluidized bed gasification technology. SES' technology gasifies coal cost
effectively, without many of the harmful emissions normally associated with
coal combustion plants. The primary advantages of the SES technology relative
to other gasification technologies are (a) greater fuel flexibility provided
by the ability to use all ranks of coal (including low rank, high ash and high
moisture coals, which are significantly cheaper than higher grade coals), many
coal waste products and biomass feed stocks; and (b) the ability to operate
efficiently on a smaller scale, which enables the construction of plants more
quickly, at a lower capital cost, and, in many cases, in closer proximity to
coal sources. SES currently has offices in Houston, Texas, and Shanghai,
China. For more information on SES, please visit or
