FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CENSOL Inc. Certified to Conduct Business in California

Imperial County Community & Economic Development Retains CENSOL to Review Plans for Integrated Sugar & Fuel Ethanol Facility

July 1, 2003

CENSOL Inc. has been granted certification by the Secretary of State, California, to provide project management and consulting services in the State of California.  This certification was sought by CENSOL in order to continue the services that it has provided to the North American Development Bank (NADB) along the USA-Mexico border under the terms of the NAFTA agreement.

The Imperial County Community & Economic Development (ICCED), located in El Centro, California, has retained the services of CENSOL Inc. to assist in the review of their innovative concept for an EcoPark, within the existing sugar beet harvesting and processing areas of the Imperial Valley.  The area is unique, in that it is located in the desert area between San Diego and Tucson and is irrigated entirely by waters diverted to the area by the Imperial Irrigation District (IID) from the Colorado River.  Funding for this project was provided to ICCED by NADB under the U.S. Community Adjustment and Investment Program (CAIP).

CENSOL Inc. was asked to prepare a "Guidance Document" that will combine a review of the existing sugar beet processing facility with an analysis of the plans to integrate this facility with an existing Imperial Valley operation.  The project relates to the harvesting and processing of sugar cane as a new crop, thus leading to the construction of a sugar cane processing plant and an integrated fuel ethanol facility.  CENSOL was brought on to look after this project based on their similar experience with sugar processing and distillery operations in Texas and Nicaragua.

This project is the second assignment that CENSOL has been awarded under the banner of the North American Development Bank.
