A HIDDEN TREASURE

INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY

There is a Hidden Treasure in this Ecological disaster not in the form of gold or diamonds but in the form of BioLNG. You will not see it unless it has been revealed to you. It is for the selected few who have the faith to invest in it. The BioLNG will produced from water Hyacinth, a renewable source of biomass, an energy crop cultivated by nature and fueled by pollution. BioLNG is a carbon negative replacement fuel for Coal, Petrol, Diesel, Jet fuel, Paraffine and LPG. It already complies with 2050 GHG Emission targets. It is a Dependable, Storable and Transportable source of Renewable Energy unlike Solar and Wind which is unstable. According to leading energy analysts the global energy demand will double between 2020 and 2050. The industrial potential is huge.

Therefore, HyaPOWER has set it sight on the future renewable energy markets. Due to effects of climate change and the urgent drive to move away from fossil fuels, the energy landscape is set to change radically in the next 10-15 years. Any future investments in fossil fuel developments especially coal will be environmentally irresponsible. It is our combined duty to make every effort to reduce our climate impact and develop all forms of renewable or low carbon energy sources.

HyaPOWER provide investors an opportunity to invest in an energy company of the future which will have a negative carbon footprint with BioLNG as our main product. The BioLNG will produced from water Hyacinth a renewable source of biomass, an energy crop cultivated by nature and fueled by pollution. BioLNG is a carbon negative replacement fuel for Coal, Petrol, Diesel, Jet fuel, Paraffine and LPG. It already complies with 2050 GHG Emission targets. It is a Dependable, Storable and Transportable source of Renewable Energy unlike Solar and Wind which is unstable.  

It may be easy to see the opportunity in an “Aquatic Bioenergy farms” but to actually convert it into a profitable business is another story. The barriers of entry into the energy production industry are very high. These barriers include Institutional, Economical, Technical, Environmental and Social Acceptance. The energy industry is a capital-intensive industry especially in the initial stages of development and construction. This is followed by stringent regulation requirements that can take up to five years complete.

But we need to look beyond these challenges and look at the potential to address some of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) we have set before us. The SDGs we will be addressing are Water Pollution, Air Pollution, High Energy cost, Low Energy Security and Unemployment.

We need to ask ourselves questions:

  • Technical and Innovative: Is it possible from a technical and scientific perspective? Absolutely. Technology allows us to do thing today that was impossible a few years ago. Most of the technology needed is available today, we just need to put it together and make it work as one system for this specific application.
  • Economical: Is there a growing demand for renewable energy? Absolutely. Is financially viable? This needs to be confirmed with a Feasibility Study, but we believe we have a strong case. Is it sustainable? There is on average anything between 4-8km2 (250 000-500 000t) of hyacinth available and more than 5 000 000t of biomass sediment available which is being renewed every year and fueled by pollution.
  • Environmentally: This needs to be confirmed through an Environmental Impact Assessment, but we believe the positive impacts will far outweigh any negative impacts.
  • Socially: We firmly believe that the community will accept what we plan to do once they have been informed and come to an understanding of our operation and the positive impact it will bring.
  • Institutionally: Permitting, Certification and Compliance to all Legal and Industrial Standards and Authorities to harvest the hyacinth, produce gas, store gas and retail gas. It will take a huge amount of time, effort and money, but it is possible. The drive for renewable energy is on our side.

Therefore, we call on like-minded investors who understand the energy industry and the urgency to reducing our impact in this world, who are willing to take the risk and walk this challenging but exciting road with us in creating a new renewable industry in ‘Aquatic Bioenergy farming.
