Description of Business
Throughout this Quarterly Report, the terms “we,” “us,” “our,” “our company,” and “the Company” collectively refer to Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. References to “GCEH” refer only to Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc.

GCEH is a Delaware corporation. GCEH currently operates through various U.S. and foreign subsidiaries that are currently wholly-owned. The principal subsidiaries include, among others: (i) Sustainable Oils, Inc., a Delaware corporation that conducts breeding and owns proprietary rights to various Camelina varieties and operates our Camelina business; (ii) GCE Holdings Acquisitions, LLC and its six Delaware limited liability company subsidiaries that were formed to finance and own, directly or indirectly, our Bakersfield Renewable Fuels, LLC, a Delaware limited liability subsidiary (“BKRF”) that owns a renewable fuels refinery in Bakersfield, California (the “Bakersfield Renewable Fuels Refinery”); (iii) GCE Operating Company, LLC, our subsidiary that operates our Bakersfield Renewable Fuels Refinery, and employs various personnel throughout the Company; (iv) Agribody Technologies, Inc., our Delaware subsidiary that oversees aspects of our plant science programs; and (v) Camelina Company Espana, S.L., our Spanish subsidiary that develops proprietary Camelina varieties and leads our business expansion opportunities in Europe and South America. We also own several inactive foreign subsidiaries.

GCEH is a uniquely positioned, vertically integrated renewable feedstocks and finished fuels company. Our business model is designed to control all aspects of the value chain, with one end of our business anchored in plant science and the other in renewable fuels production. We contract directly with farmers to grow our ultra-low carbon, nonfood, proprietary Camelina crop on fallow land to process at the Bakersfield Renewable Fuels Refinery. Once online, the 15,000 barrels per day (“BPD”) facility will sell up to its full production capacity of renewable diesel (“RD”) for a minimum of five years to ExxonMobil Oil Corporation (“ExxonMobil”) through a pair of long-term supply agreements. It is expected that the facility will be operating in the second half of 2022.
