Company History:

1. Inventor-

The inventor is from Kingdom of Saudi Arabia-KSA, Engineer/ Adel Nasir AL-Ansari, Owner of BARDA Establishment since 1992. BARDA is a company working in the field of Central Air Conditioning (AC) system Maintenance and Contracting. BARDA for more than 20 years has done quite number of midsized commercial and residential Central Air Conditioning Projects and became expert in dealing with customer need specially in Air Conditioning – related to air distribution. BARDA’s owner has designed a lot of AC system projects for different application in which had been constructed by BARDA. As result of more than 25 years’ experience in AC system designing and implementations BARDA’s owner discover that the buildings can be Air Conditioned to the same desired conditioned as per the standard of ASHRAE or any local standard using total ventilation (100%) fresh air consuming less energy than circulating the building’s air.

2. BITS Design-

This is a company formed in Malaysia, KL , 2013 by the Inventor and another individual Mechanical Engineer “Mohamad Ali Zulfaqar”, Designer expert in AC system design, holding the position of director for BITS Design Company (see his attached talent profile). BITS Design Company is the only certified design office to do LEAFA AC system customized and commercial design.

3. University Chair-

King Abdullah University of Science & Technology – KAUST, Thuwal, Saudi Arabia is a university where a scientific chair by the name of LEAFATEC with value of USD 20 million will be established for 5 years 2014-2018. This scientific chair is donated by the Inventor from the IP royalty Fee. The purpose of the chair is to conduct several applications, mostly related to LEAFA District Cooling & Open Area Cooling. The inventor as chair’s donator is suggesting applying sponsored applications in KAUST community area to be used as simulation for other city’s application i.e. Makkah, Madina, Kuala Lumpur etc. KAUST applications should be for the outdoor areas i.e. “Discovery Square” and “Street’s of SAFA or GARDEN District”. After KAUST’s applications the Inventor will move to other outside applications i.e. to cool MAKKAH Holy Mosque “MATAF” and MAKKAH Streets around HARAM, “Abbraj Al Bait Area” – Jyaad District. Also Inventor will sponsor to apply LEAFA AC system for selected building within MAKKAH where the CO2 level is higher than (1500) ppm- the limit set by the World Health Organization- WHO- due to the present of people’s crowd (more occupants during Hajj season). All applications are to bring solution in reducing the pollution improving the indoor air quality (IAQ) and controlling the outdoor condition to be suitable and healthier for people.

Product / Service Description:

LEAFA is a new technology for building Air Conditioning (AC). It is to cool the buildings with an existing/ normal AC system, but using the open cycle air distribution instead of close cycle. It means Building Air Conditioning with total ventilation- 100% Fresh Air. LEAFA stands for Less Energy All (100%) Fresh Air. The current – non LEAFA- AC system has the fresh air only as a makeup normally as per standard 10% – 20% according to the building airflow usage. Current practice show that the amount of energy is proportional increase with amount of outdoor fresh air added into the space. LEAFA design and products will introduce less energy or AC unit’s capacity for the same building or area going to be conditioned and same load while using 100 % fresh air to cool the building.

Collection, Trading & Recycling (Bio-Diesel) of Used Cooking Oil (UCO), Selangor

Required RM2mil funding; Guaranteed 10% yearly return from investment.

Introduction

Due to the huge waste and pollution from wastage it’s necessary to take the right solution to manage, to recycle and reuse our waste to reduce the wastage and pollution. Especially used cooking oil (“UCO”), it’s not only causing our sewerage system overflows, it’s also causing the health of animal and human by reusing it as food. The majority of used cooking oil in Malaysia is reuse for animal feeds. To overcome this problem, we should reuse the used cooking oil as fuel, Bio-diesel.

Who we are

We are dedicated to the Green Program to reduce the discharge of toxins into Earth’s environment.
We aim to minimize wastages and depletion of natural resources by recycling resources in an efficient and effective manner adopting environmentally friendly technology.
We strive to make the practice of environmental friendliness simple to adopt and apply.

Our Strength
8 years experience
Buyer contact (animal feeds)
Recognize by PBT / State Government
Facilities ready (UCO)
License to process Biodiesel

Our Weakness
Limited Lorry
Distribution Network / Effectiveness
Biodiesel facility not enough

Opportunities

Due to the high competition, there would be higher volume of UCO in Malaysia. Because more collector to approach/educate more restaurants/people to store and sell UCO, whether it’s in town or village.

The fast growing of Bio industrial had given us more option to market our products (UCO / Biodiesel) to the bio industrial like oleochemical (bio-soap) or alternative energy industrial.

Market Summary

Past : UCO business > 20 years. Price Cheap or free. Collection is targeted on volume costumers.

Present : More competitive with Bio-diesel industrial. UCO volume increase with higher competition. UCO become more useful.

Future: UCO become more popular & higher demand by oleochemical & alternative energy industrial.

Prospective Customer: Restaurants, Hotel, Food processing factory, Factory’s canteen (Perodua,Sharp), University / College / School, Training Center (MBB,Petronas).

Use of Fund

To make the company grow faster, we will build up more depot at every state as collection centre. Every collection centre will be having few lorries to collect UCO at the particular state. The accumulated UCO will be transferred to HQ. From HQ, we will deliver to animal feeds factory or we process as biodiesel.
(Details on use of fund will be furnished upon request)

We need to upgrade our HQ to get ready for higher volume of UCO transaction.

UCO Trading Risk Mitigation

The pricing for UCO is affected by the Commodity price of Crude Palm Oil (CPO).
We take advantage of increasing CPO prices which in turn is passed on to the purchasers of UCO.
We take advantage of reducing CPO prices which in turn is passed on to the purchasers of Bio-diesel.

Collection Capacities

10,000 storage sets = 10,000 Collection Points.

Each lorry collect up to 250 collection points, twice a month (20.8 / day).

40 nos. lorry
= 40 x 250 points x 2 (per month) x 20L
= 400,000L

In addition, forecast first installation in UAE, Vietnam and Cambodia will be realized in 2009 & early 2010, as well.

INVESTMENT SUMMARY

Based on the financial planning, including sufficient reserves, the Company is looking for an investment of 2,5 million RM (500,000 euro) for which it is willing to issue 10% shares to the investor(s). The share percentage is from the share capital and represents a higher value related to the paid up capital. Therefore the 5% share batches will never be diluted to a lower percentage than issued.

hotel3Considering the fact that the company will be worth at least 75 million Euro by 2012, a high Return on Investment can be expected over a period of 3 years, 2012 year of the IPO. The assumption of 15 times the profit of the year 2012 is a realistic assumption, in particular if the Company can show the annual growth figures as projected.

An investment of 500,000 Euro would result in a minimum capital gain of 7,500,000 euro, 15 times the initial investment over a period of 3 years. The company reserves at least 20% of the profit for dividend purposes, which creates an additional ROI for the investor(s).

The profile and the terms and conditions of the investor are definitely important. The potential investor should not only invest, but also bring added value with regards to the credibility of the Company, which is always an issue during the start up of a new company.

The potential investor, preferably, is familiar with the hospitality business or at least is able to open doors and introduces it to business partners in Asia, Middle East or Europe.
The potential investor should bring added value to the overall management of the company and create a real partnership with the other shareholders of the company.

Singapore company seeking financial partner for Global Expansions of its Gas-to-Liquid process tech

Project Cost: <$5M

Amount Invested : n/a

Amount Required : yes, ~$25M

Knowledge / Experience Required: other (Operations/Engineering)

Proposed Investor’s Role: others (Advisor)

Industry:
energy / natural resources
engineering
manufacturing
industry products

Project Stage:

early expansion

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

Company History:

Single step Gas to Liquids process for oil and gas producers to monetise stranded natural gas. Parent company established in 2004, now commercialising the GTL plant after decade of R&D with recent appointment of Singapore Managing Director to head ASEAN sales. Rated as preferred technology for mitigating gas flaring by a regional National Oil Company. Expansion capital sought for rest of ASEAN.

Product / Service Description:

Direct conversion of gas to liquid oxygenates
Lower CAPex than peers & higher IRR
Rough field capable = early production system
Smaller footprint, mobile and redeployable
Liquid oxygenates, biodegradeable

Business Opportunity:

The target market is stranded gas in ASEAN, much of which is currently flared/vented. (roughly 2 billion cubic metres in each of China, Indonesia, Malaysia, rest of Asia-Pacific). By converting the gas to a liquid, volume is reduced by ~500x with consequent storage and handling savings, making it viable to transport. USGS estimates 300 trillion cubic feet gas in unexplored reservoirs (greenfield) 90% of which is offshore. These are either small, acidic or complex geophysics making them marginal. The GasTechno process enables extra revenue giving additional margin against oil price fluctuations.

Revenue Model:

Each gas site will have 3 components from sale of products

– CostGas = Operation expenses incl royalties
– CAPex = Project Finance via leasing of GTL-plant
– ProfitGas = free cashflow – split among JV partners incl dividends

Investors can enter at different risk-return points ranging from secured %ownership of GTL plant to equity.

Management Team:

The Singapore operations will be headed by C.S. Balaji, with further engineers and sales reps to be appointed. 25 years of rich experience in various functions such as Supply Chain Distribution, Business Partner Management, Business Operations, Sales, Marketing, Product Management, Project Management, and Application Engineering. Most notably 15 year GE Oil & Gas – creating the APAC customer application centre for measurement & control.

Current Status:

Technology deployed for US shale plays (2Q2015), now aggressively expanding (2015-16) worldwide via licensing partnerships & JV. Recently passed Phase 1 Technology Qualification of DNV-GL (necessary for marine insurance). Traction to date:

2013 – Field Demonstration Plant
Early Adopter Program
Ocean Tomo Top Michigan Patent

2014 –US subsidiary + sales office
Private Placement Memorandum
GasTechno® Diesenol patents filed
N. Dakota Grant (commercial)

2015 – UK Holding company
Singapore Managing Director
Preferred technology (NOC)

current revenue from pre-FEED studies, discussions with various O&G owner/operators in SEasia.

Funding Milestone:

Aiming to establish a reference site which can serve as hands-sales demo + training site. (<$5M)
Technology Qualification Phase 3 for full Design-Operate-Transfer of a commercial GTL plant (~$25M) including product delivery/sales.

Business Valuation:

Independent valuation of Intellectual Property (transfer pricing study) have estimated worldwide patents worth ~$80M. Split among countries for projects up to 25% will be available for < $5M (site specific)

Expected Return On Investment:

Aiming for a x3-5 revaluation on completion of Technology Qualification (marinisation, scaling up, de-risking). A secured interest in the GTL plant will yield ~10%, with equity investment aiming for 30% IRR (depending on project financing).

Investment Risk and Mitigation:

R&D risk is absorbed by parent but residual engineering/deployment risk to reach health/safety/environmental standards of national oil companies. This can be reduced by a pre-qualification regime.

Scaling risk – currently designed for US shale operations < 1MMscfd but larger GTL plants needed. Address through DNV technology qualification (issed Statement of Feasibility).

Marinisation risk – additional cost of adapting for harsh environment will add 20-30% to existing costs making economic viability marginal in some cases. Hedge against product price fluctuations and minimum feedstock volumes.

Exit Strategies:

Either tradesale or listing on UK AIM market within 5 years.

Mitigating Global Warming & Poverty through Community-Based Waste Conversion Projects

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

HOW GLOBAL WARMING AFFECTS POVERTY

Global Warming results from increased concentrations of greenhouse gases (such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide) in the atmosphere. The problem we now face is that human actions-including the burning of fossils fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) and land clearing-are increasing the concentrations of some of these gases, creating the prospect of further warming of the globe.

Scientific evidence shows that, left unchecked, climate change will impact on many aspects of our society, with far-reaching consequences to human health, global food security and economic development.

One might wonder how significant the relation between a natural phenomenon and an economic condition could be. But, in truth, global warming can have disastrous effects on the progress to overcome poverty. Global warming is a scientific phenomenon in which global temperatures rise because of the release of harmful gases into the environment. The rising of temperatures can negatively impact the advancements made in eliminating global poverty.

Rising temperatures greatly alter agricultural yields. Good crop yields not only help to eliminate malnutrition, but also invigorate the economy by creating jobs and encouraging trade. Drought would leave many unemployed and hungry, which actively denies families the ability to rise out of poverty.

Another problem with global warming is water conservation. Higher temperatures lead to less water, which is already a problem in a number of poverty stricken areas. Another side effect would be severe rains and flooding, again, resulting in hardships. Changing weather patterns result in more storms and high sea levels, both of which can have disastrous effects on agriculture and crop yields.

Global warming’s negative effects do not only relate to changing sea levels, endangered animals, and disappearing glaciers. Its impact is very much related to humans, as it will affect water supply, crop yields, and potential natural disasters. Global warming’s origins may be debated, but its affects are unavoidable. Within the next few decades, temperatures will rise, resulting in terrible consequences especially for those who do not have safe, sturdy shelters and a dependable food source and income.

As the uphill battle against poverty is fought, so must the uphill battle against global warming. Damage has already been done, and while it is hard to undo, changing our ways today has a chance of alleviating the impact on tomorrow.

SIMULTANEOUS MITIGATION OF GLOBAL WARMING AND POVERTY

Research studies have determined that a viable climate change strategy cannot be achieved without a viable economic development strategy, and vice versa. As such, development strategies should alleviate global warming and poverty at the same time and cannot be done through piece-meal/ knee-jerk reaction.

Novel biomass conversion technologies are seen as the main route that will directly help the economy and conserves the environment from poor waste management and utilization. Furthermore, biomass has the highest potential for small scale business development and mass employment. An interesting characteristic of biomass is local production and local consumption.

Since the answer to alleviating (if not eradicating) poverty is not through mere education, gifts, subsidies and health programs but the understanding about the minimum earnings needed by an individual to live decently, global warming and poverty can be answered simultaneously by building Poverty Alleviation into biomass and waste conversion businesses and economics thought/actions.

With that concept, AGRO BIOGENICS (CLEAN-TECH) PVT LTD have initiated and pioneered a New Business Paradigm that simultaneously answers GLOBAL WARMING and POVERTY (GWP) by developing Village level Industries to convert each village into wealth creation centers through the setting up of AGRO-POLYMER INDUSTRY COMPLEX-SUSTAINABILITY ENGINEERED PROJECTS (APIX-SEP) using ZERO-WASTE ZERO-CARBON BUSINESS-MODEL (ZW-ZC-BM).

With HQ in India and established in the year 2010, AGRO BIOGENICS (CLEAN-TECH) PVT LTD is a manufacturer and service provider working towards converting available local Renewable Resources (RR = Plants/vegetation matter, agro-wastes, animal wastes, rain, sunlight, wind and soil) in villages and rural areas into Alternate Energy, Alternate Engineering materials, Bio-Petrochemicals, Bio-Fertilizer, Carbon Sink Engineered products and Bio-water, and also to set up Development projects in Villages in India and worldwide.

COLLABORATIVE VENTURE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Visualizing its’ potential and convinced that a similar concept can have a positive impact in Malaysia and the ASEAN region, me and my group have initiated a collaborative working partnership with AGRO-BIOGENICS (CLEAN-TECH) PVT LTD.

We believe that by introducing the concept of converting the huge cache of wastes and unused biomass into value-added GREEN PRODUCTS and MATERIALS with the activities dispersed in RURAL/FARM/VILLAGE AREAS would help in not only mitigating Global Warming, but would also help change the economic scenario of our nation.

Locating the industry/economic activities to be in village, farm or rural areas using SUSTAINABILITY ENGINEERING and SELF REGENERATIVE RECYCLING (SRR) methodologies in a Zero-Waste, Zero-Carbon Business Model (ZW-ZC-BM) would obliterate the impacts of global warming due to near total independence from fossil fuels and petroleum products, the development of the local villages would offset the problems due to shifting populations; local areas and villages would become centers of wealth creation, resulting in a cascading development effect.

THE BUSINESS MODEL

We have set-up AGRO BIOGENICS (MALAYSIA) SDN BHD to operate as the MANAGEMENT CENTRE for community-based agro-resources and renewable resources conversions industrial projects to mitigate Global Warming & Poverty (GWP) simultaneously.

The business objective is to commercialize the innovative interconnected industrial complexes, APIX-SEP, in villages, farmlands and rural areas with the goal of making a significant difference to the growth of nation and region. As the parent company, AGRO-BIOGENICS (CLEAN-TECH) PVT LTD will provide the Appropriate Engineering and Total Know-How.

AGRO BIOGENICS (MALAYSIA) SDN BHD will design, devise, construct, operate and implement the APIX-SEP to utilize, convert and recycle Organic/Vegetation RENEWABLE RESOURCES (Non-farm plant vegetative materials, Felled and fallen trees, and Shrubs, weeds and grass clippings) and Non-Toxic Wastes (Agro-Industrial wastes, Farm/Plantation Waste, Food waste, Timber Industry waste and Organic Industrial waste).

These are huge resources not yet considered for any economically viable products, by mainstream production technologies and economics paradigm. In fact, we are not utilizing these appropriately. There are more than 100 million dry tonne of biomass generated in Malaysia on yearly basis to be tapped into higher value chain but studies have indicated that less than 10% of it are being used, wasting almost 90% or more of the total biomass. Neither have we correctly and fully identified all of these nor have we visualized the huge potentials to utilize all of these to develop the overall national economy in a sustainable manner.

However, together with our parent company, we have taken up the works of converting all these resources into Economic Development resources, through a MISSIONARY zeal and these are the renewable resources that would be the main systems in the AGRO BIOGENICS scheme of things.

Looking at the huge cache of Renewable Resources … the plants/ vegetations/ animal world … as the answer to energy/materials needs of mankind and focusing on two new technologies, Natural Fiber Polymer Composites (NFPC) and Carbon Sequestration Technology, AGRO BIOGENICS’s main thrust will be:

1. Natural Fiber Polymer Composites- based Engineered Green Products and Materials
2. Bio-Petrochemicals/Green Bio-Chemicals from vegetation resources (pure green sulfur, organic silica and building block chemicals).
3. Carbon Sink Engineered Products (CSEP) that are “reacted” and converted using Industrial wastes + CO2 (the waste being environmental pollutants otherwise). Examples of Carbon Sink Engineered products are “Green Cement”, Construction Bricks and Prefabricated walls/partitions.
4. Value-added byproducts such as Bio-Energy (electricity and heat to provide self-sustainable energy system), Bio-Fertilizer and Bio-Water.
5. Carbon Sink Engineered Products (CSEP) that are “reacted” and converted using Industrial wastes + CO2 (the waste being environmental pollutants otherwise). Examples of Carbon Sink Engineered products are “Green Cement”, Construction Bricks and Prefabricated walls/partitions.
6. Value-added byproducts such as Bio-Energy (electricity and heat to provide self-sustainable energy system), Bio-Fertilizer and Bio-Water.

The Target Markets for the end-products are Construction, Automotive, Industrial, Communication, Furniture, Textile, Crockery and Sporting Goods.

The setting up of APIX-SEP programs would be through a cooperative arrangement, through joint ventures involving AGRO-BIOGENICS and one or more of the following groups:
1. Federal or State Government in their rural development and poverty eradication effort
2. Educational Institutions as part of their CSR activities.
3. Entrepreneurs and/or Corporate companies who wish to take advantage of the huge market and profitability potential.
4. International Institutions, who may support by way of various assistance such as “Seed Capital”, Net based support, UN support and the like.

The initial plan is to set up two Pilot Projects in Malaysia …to be named: APIX_PILOT, piloting a small scale cluster modules in a farmland/village/rural area of 30 ha to 35 ha, to be followed up later with more systems with bigger land allocation (up to 100 ha). It should be noted that APIX-SEP – the ZW-ZC-BM – could be set up even in an area bereft of any agricultural activity; and in this case the locally available vegetation and other animal/ human wastes could be the starting materials for the SRR processes.

THE BOTTOM LINE

With rising energy costs and the threat of global warming, many businesses are now recognizing the benefits of using technology to reduce their carbon footprint and to minimize waste, while having a positive impact on their business”. As such “Global warming” is the largest economic opportunity of the 21st century.

The use of materials from renewing resources is attaining increased importance as sustainability, industrial ecology, eco-efficiency, and green chemistry are guiding the development of the next generation of materials, products, and processes.

At a time when we are facing SHORTAGES in all Engineering Materials (Wood, Metals, Cement etc) due to a Two-fold problem of Global Warming and Environmental degradation, those products now available in the market are “traditional” systems with certain costs and many “drawbacks”. However, ALL products under AGRO-BIOGENICS do not have such drawbacks, cost lesser and Unique being CO2 Reducing GREEN products… at Costs that the traditional products cannot compete.

However, though it needs a very low capital investment (around RM 150,000) but have high growth potentials and high profitability (it is estimated that the potential businesses involved through utilizing available Renewable Resources (RR) are about US $15 Trillion to $20 Trillion), we do not have the Working Capital to start-off and implement a pilot project. As such, we would like to explore the possibility of working together with an ANGEL INVESTOR or VENTURE CAPITALIST to start the business operation of AGRO BIOGENICS (MALAYSIA) SDN BHD.

Let us combine together to make this happen… thereby paving the way for offsetting global warming, shifting populations… and above all, eradicating poverty…to be brought about not through subsidies and incentives, but through creating value to so-called wastes and useless renewable vegetation and plant resources; not through grants and loans, but through offering work and wages to those in the locality, and empowering people…all these finally resulting in government tax earnings, bringing about more cascading development of local villages and surroundings.
