How WE DO?

Turn Key Projects. I + A / CWTE offers complete EPC projects reducing the technological and financial risks to its owners.

In order to assure the Offtakes and

other project finance matrix items,

Turnkey projects developed by I+A / CWTE focus on customers interested

in buying Waste to Energy complete solutions, where I+A / CWTE develops the project from the early stages of engineering, to construction and
commissioning. I+A / CWTE has a specialized engineering department,
who knows and also represents and develops energy conversion technologies such as gasification, pyrolysis, dehydrators and hubs energy, gas
turbines, fuel production plants using natural gas or syngas.

I+A / CWTE starts with research of

Financial structuring, Project Finance and Access to Investment.

Some of the companies that own concessions or landfills industries do not

have any money to invest.
I+A / CWTE services provide Project Structuring & Project Financing
Schemes for accessing structured finance with contracts supported. This
is a complementary service and also very relevant for customers who do
not have all the capital required as collateral needed to support the
weight of the debt which can be the source of project payment (future
cash flows).

the groundwork well, I+A / CWTE has

the ability to prepare a rock solid
project for investor finance that will
perform well for the long run.
Investors can be confident in the due
diligence that I+A / CWTE performs.
Initial project information is always
available for a cursory review, and for
an investor to determine their level
of interest. A more detailed prepared

BOO (Build Own Operate).

Some landfills havent operational or financial capacity to develop a project of this type, but they have the required conditions such as concessions
for over 15 years, environmental licenses, technical conditions, and maybe having a buyer of energy or fuel.
The I+A / CWTE group, in specific cases, may interest in the development
by his own of the project finance at an early stage and also its operation &

Investment Memorandum is the final

step of initial investor project information, which will reveal all the
information needed to make a well
informed investment decision, prior
to Investor Due Diligence. All the
required documents are always
assembled by I+A / CWTE in an electronic data rooms for investor review.


Sale of Technology.

Some integrators might be interested in acquiring some of the I+A /

CWTE technology to advance some of its projects. I+A / CWTE can structure the technological solution that best suits the client needs.

Once an investor is satisfied with all the

documents presented, then the final
step is usually a site visit. Site visits are
always well prepared by I+A / CWTE,
and are the final step to fully satisfy any
investor due diligence requirements.

We work with local engineers for environmental

is needed since for good fluidization particle size should be less than 2 cm. On the
other hand, not all easily fluidized solids,
it is sometimes necessary to add another
solid fluidization aid.

Each has a number of advantages and

disadvantages. The fluidized bed gasifier
more easily allows the scaling process
has a higher throughput and better control of the process temperature of the
moving bed gasifier.
Another very important advantage presented by the fluidized bed against the
moving bed is that it allows the addition
of catalysts into the bed to conduct catalytic gassing.
However, the fluidized bed also presents
a number of disadvantages, for example,

of Capstone turbines to customers worldwide. These turbines have been awarded and have
registered tens of millions of hours of reliable operation.

"The energy contained in solid waste and / or biomass allows to obtain high
rates of return and also economic power."

4.Using Synthetic GasGasification Syngas- Coming from.

We use a standard commercial technology Methane steam reforming (SMR) for converting
natural gas into synthesis gas, a precursor of fuel mainly composed of hydrogen (H2) and
carbon monoxide (CO). We can reform the natural gas into synthesis gas alone or take the
syngas provided by our gasifier.
The synthesis gas is then treated to remove carbon dioxide and other impurities such as
sulfur upstream of liquid fuel synthesis.
Our process' can use syngas from a variety of sources, while meets specifications. The synthesis gas can be produced from other feedstocks, including biomass, municipal solid waste,
coal and other carbon-rich substances.

Another key issue concerns

risk management in the delivery of construction within
the conditions of the special
purpose vehicle which is formed for this purpose. SPV
projects are typically delivered to the operator of the
service through an engineering, procurement and
construction (EPC). The risk
can be minimized operator
giving all aspects of capital
works - pre-treatment, main
floor and grid connection
infrastructure - in a single
EPC contract. This comprehensive approach, where
the SPV takes a more direct
role in risk management can
increase yields and reduce
the total cost of the project.

One of the main advantages of our Gas to Liquids process is that it produces a wide range of
fuels and organic solvents. In addition to free high-octane gasoline sulfur, our technology can
be adapted to produce jet fuel and diesel, both high margin products that are in demand in
various industries. Our process may also produce organic solvents that are widely used in
production of rubber, plastic and other synthetic materials.
Gasoline our process has undergone extensive third-party testing to verify compliance with
all ASTM standards, which measure the quality of gasoline. Specifically, compared with traditional gasoline, present very low sulfur content (less than 1 ppm vs. 30 ppm), benzene content lower (0.16% vs. 0.62%), the lowest corrosion and greater possible stability.
Our synthesis technology lquido fuel is a variant of the Methanol-to-Gasoline process
(MTG) commercially owned and ExxonMobil, which has been simplified to produce gasoline and organic solvents directly, without the need for additional treatment tested. The result
is a highly efficient process which converts natural gas 1 MMBtu in about 5 gallons of liquid
fuels. The process produces fuels that are ready for immediate distribution, sale and consumption using the existing infrastructure.
The owner of our license diesel fuel produced in the laboratory and is awaiting presentation
to the public at its demonstration plant in 2015. Diesel demand is growing in the United
States and the world, in addition, there is a great need for diesel in areas remote where there
is gas available.
