Cielo Waste Solutions (CWSFF) Waste to Energy Tech

  • Cielo Waste (Canadian based company) leads the waste to fuel industry. Canadian federal government mandates a certain amount of diesel be produced from clean/renewable sources. Diesel packs more energy into every gallon.
  • The world will soon produce over 5 billion tons of garbage as soon as 2025. This trash can be turned into diesel.
  • Cielo’s process can transform almost all kinds of waste in diesel fuels.
  • Cielo is an attractive investment opportunity.
  Let’s face it, our modern way of life (which is really nice) also produces tons of trash. I am constantly amazed and disgusted with myself when I fill my garbage bins to the brim each and every week. And we have a small family and we try to recycle as much as possible. We (humanity) are literally trashing our own home, and the plastic and waste is becoming so ubiquitous that it’s even making its way back into our bodies. Not good. Self loathing aside, we can’t help it. We are all living in the modern world. But we can do better. We can support innovative ways to reduce the amount of trash and re use our trash in ways that benefit us. Enter Cielo Waste Solutions out of Canada, ticker CWSFF.

Trash to Energy

Cielo developed a carbon neutral process that transforms trash into high grade renewable deisel fuel. The planet and humanity will require more and more solutions like this into the future. I have personally worked on projects that removes methane from landfills for energy.  Here is another example of technology leading to a greener more sustainable planet and economy.

Cielo Waste Solutions’ ‘waste to fuel’ refineries will help reduce landfill garbage methane and CO2 emissions

The global waste to fuel energy industry is just taking off now and is forecast to grow from US$35.1 billion in 2019 to US$50.1 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2020 to 2027. It is highly likely the growth rates will end up much higher than this forecast given the world produces over 3.5 million tons of garbage a day (over 2 billion tons a year), with the vast majority ending up in landfill dumps. Cielo Waste Solutions Corp. (TSXV: CMC | OTCQB: CWSFF | FSE: C36) (“Cielo”) is in the business of turning our waste into fuel, at a lower cost than typical biofuel companies. Cielo has an exclusive global license from a related party to a technology for refining household, commercial (includes municipal waste) and construction/demolition waste into high-grade renewable fuels/diesel. The technology is also effective on wet organics (compost), all plastics, paper, tires, cardboard, sawdust and wood. Cielo plans to construct renewable diesel refineries globally using alternate waste feedstocks.

ESG Angle

I am convinced that a modern portfolio needs to have ESG exposure to stay relevant. Environmental, social and governance, or ESG investing, is a form of sustainable investing that considers an investment’s financial returns and its overall impact. An investment’s ESG score measures the sustainability of an investment in three specific categories: environmental, social and corporate governance. As the world evolves and faces future existential challenges, ESG investing may become even more profitable.
Cielo has ESG investment written all over it. The Company has developed a proven and patented technology to produce high cetane (a measurement of the quality of diesel fuel where higher is better), ultralow sulfur renewable diesel, kerosene and naphtha fuels. Feedstock (also known as inputs) for the process include the world’s most available and inexpensive household, commercial and construction/demolition garbage, wet organics (compost), all plastics, paper, tires, cardboard, sawdust and wood. When one considers that most of this garbage ends up in a landfill where it generates methane emissions while the Cielo process creates virtually no emissions, this goes from a win-win to a win-win-win situation. Then there’s the added bonus of reducing reliance on imported biofuels made from agricultural products. So reducing imports and leaving agricultural products for food gets us up to five wins by my math, hence my ESG investment comment
  • Cielo holds an exclusive global license from a related party with the process patents having been issued in both Canada and the US
  • There are currently no major renewable diesel producers in Canada that can sell into the Canadian market.
  • Canadian Regulators have mandated minimum blends of renewable diesel into all transportation grade diesel, almost all of which currently is imported. Currently over 872 million liters per year and growing.
  • Cielo is not reliant on government assistant or subsidies. Cielo’s model is profitable based on current market rates and prices for the sale of their fuels

Cielo summarizes their company here:

“Cielo has an exclusive global license from a related party for a game-changing refining process (“the technology”) that can convert multiple different waste streams into renewable diesel at a considerably lower cost than biodiesel companies. Almost every developed country in the world has a mandate to blend renewable fuels, and Cielo will be selling into this growing market. The global applications of Cielo’s technology are enormous.” SEE RELATED: Cielo Waste Solutions Official Site

I’m long

I am long Cielo and collecting shares incrementally. There is a robust community of folks doing large amounts of due diligence on this company.

Next Era Energy

We were early investors in Next Era Energy for some of the same reasons. The world is energy hungry. Everything from the smallest lifeform to humans require energy to function. Our brains require energy and our modern life of luxury/technology requires even more energy. Energy is life and life is energy. But energy that is consumed by animals does not magically arrive in our lives. It takes effort and management to harness and deliver the energy we need. Which is a for profit exercise and product. In addition to the pure need for energy to live our modern lives, we will need more and more energy from renewable sources. Billions of people around the globe want to raise their quality of life and standard of living. If the energy they consume develops negative externalities of pollution and climate disruption, then we may certainly all be doomed in the long run. Enter stage right, Next Era Energy (Ticker NEE). NEE is the world’s largest producer of wind and solar energy. It currently produces over 46,000 Megawatts of power and has revenues over $18 Billion. It is now the 3rd largest electric utility company in the US.

About NEE From Their Own Mouth:

NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NEE) is a leading clean energy company headquartered in Juno Beach, Florida. NextEra Energy owns two electric companies in Florida: Florida Power & Light Company, which serves more than five million customer accounts in Florida and is the largest rate-regulated electric utility in the United States as measured by retail electricity produced and sold; and Gulf Power Company, which serves more than 460,000 customers in eight counties throughout northwest Florida. NextEra Energy also owns a competitive energy business, NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, which, together with its affiliated entities, is the world’s largest generator of renewable energy from the wind and sun and a world leader in battery storage NEE is scheduled to return 10% annually over the next several years, and that may be on the low end of expectations. The bottomline is that this company is a leader in clean energy production on a massive scale, and this will be highly desirable over the next several
