Investor Needed for a Turnkey Green Energy from Waste Project

Opportunity Snapshot

Investment Opportunity

"Turn-key" project about starting a plant to process MSW via pyrolysis and produce green energy under the "Clean City" State Program in Ukraine.

The project is about processing MSW via pyrolysis to produce green energy. Within the "Clean City" state program such a process enjoys guaranteed pay by the government from the "green tariff", as well as exemption from taxes and customs duties.

The President and the Government of Ukraine, realizing the need for energy independence of the country, pay great attention to alternative energy sources. One of them is processing of solid waste by pyrolysis and gasification to generate electricity. For the introduction of this technology in the "State Agency of Investments and Management of National Projects" created the state company "Clean City", which in turn has developed a "Project-Clean City" for the implementation and installation of solid waste processing lines with a number of benefits guaranteed by the laws of Ukraine, namely:

1. Guaranteed payment by the state of electricity produced by a special "green tariff"
2. Exemption companies producing "green energy" from income tax for a period of 7 years from the start of operations
3. Exemption from customs duties and VAT on importation of equipment from abroad.
4. Transfer of the necessary land on which the feasibility study has already been created for the installation of the pyrolysis lines, long-term lease
5. Transfer of ownership of solid waste

This project will be implemented in ten regional centers of Ukraine, including in the cities of Khmelnytsky, Ternopil and Chernivtsi, which are located in the western region of Ukraine within 100 kilometres of each other.

Competitive Advantage

Due to the new government initiatives we want to emphasize that we thoroughly explored in practice the problems that "Green Energy" is addressing. We are one of the few companies in Ukraine, which would implement the project, based on the latest scientific and engineering developments since 2008, in a private manner. We have held talks and meetings with the mayor and CEO of PJSC "power companies", and the head of the "Clean City" State Enterprise, and received in all instances support and understanding. To date, given the State support and guarantees, we can say with confidence that we are eligible and ready to establish the right waste processing plant setup in the city of Khmelnitsky
