Transcript of Biodiesel business plan

Feedstock Suppliers
Environmental and Social Impact & Safety control
Supply & Distribution
Research and Studies
Renew Fuels has secured 13 different food chains, including 107 individual collection locations
The total estimated oil collection per month is approximately 92,050 liters

Renew Fuels
Collection Method
Renew Fuels will supply its Feedstock suppliers with 300 litre reusable drums
Full drums will be collected by our vehicle, which runs on the biodiesel produced by Renew Fuels
Most of the raw materials will be coming from Dubai and Sharjah

Caustic soda (NaOH)
Health and safety
As the company grows, additional suppliers must be sourced
Limited to sourcing the used cooking oil locally
approximately 7000 restaurants are estimated to be currently in business in Sharjah & Dubai
Many more are expected to open in the future

Future Feedstock collection
Mitsubishi Fuso Canter
Hydraulic lift, capable of lifting 1200kg of weight onto the cargo area.
Up to 14 oil drums can be collected in one trip
Renew Fuels Collection Vehicle
Collecting the raw material (UCO) will be the most challenging and risky operation
Collected used cooking oil must be inspected for quality to ensure that the supplier has not tainted the used cooking oil
On-going operations challenge

The main ingredient in the production of biodiesel is used cooking oil (UCO), acquired from restaurants and fast food chains
It is easier to work with clean oil
Securing a sound feedstock supply is important

Financial Analysis
MENA Region
General overview of the region.
According to the MENA Renewable Status Report 2013
Rapid growth in renewable energy by 14% between 2007 and 2010

Growth in energy demand due to increase in population, urbanization
and economic progress

Water Scarcity, high fossil fuel prices and enhancement on energy security and environmental factors.

Biomass Use
14% of the total energy consumption
3% in the industrialized countries and
35% in the developing countries, mainly Rural population
Analysis conducted by UNCED indicates that,
......Biomass can account for 50% of present energy demand by 2050

Risk Management (Criteria)
Probability of the risk occurring
The impact of the risk on the project
The risk tolerance line

Identified risk

Price changes with Buyers or suppliers
Countermeasure: Prevention
contracts with the buyers and suppliers to prevent changes in prices

Direct competition may arise
Countermeasure: Reduction
Contracts with the buyers and suppliers to reduce the impact

Methanol leakages may cause explosions.
Countermeasure: Prevention
Storage of methanol to be in remote containers
Installation of methanol detectors

Biodiesel History
Biodiesel is not new!
First experimented with in the 30’s
1937, a technology called Transesterification was developed in Belgium, which converted the oil into smaller molecules.

Current technology for production formed in the 80’s
Originally used in remote areas where Petroleum based diesel was not available
It was only popular during WWII, and the oil crisis in the 70’s
Original diesel engines could run directly from pure clean cooking oil
Newer diesel engines could not work with this, due to the thick viscosity

Approximately 35% increase
Modern Biodiesel Production
Cost of biodiesel production has significantly decreased
Newest technology, using High Frequency Magnetic Impulse Reactor Processing Method (Ultrasound reactor)
Manufacturing facility ideal to be near the feedstock supply, and customer biodiesel fill

Other Sources of Biomass
early stages of technology
Facility is costly to setup
Current cost to produce a gallon of fuel is too high

Food Based Feedstock such as Corn & Soy
Biomass obtained from food crops has a higher value than food itself, which has in the past lead to food shortages, or increased food cost
Requires a lot of land to produce
Plants can only be grown seasonally

Sewage Waste
It is not a very profitable endeavor
Wood & Rubbish

Limited to producing energy on the spot

Cattle Manure (animal waste)
Used as a biogas by either burning it directly, or by producing methane gas by means of anaerobic digestion
Not efficient to transport the raw material long for biomass production elsewhere
Large scale project
Why is Renew Fuels going Green with Used Cooking Oil?
Biodiesel is a green fuel that emits less toxins into the atmosphere than traditional Petroleum based diesel, and lubricates the engine while doing so.
The industry is still in its early stages, a good time to enter the market
Biodiesel is quickly gaining popularity, it compliments the worldwide green initiative
Demand is on the rise.
RenewFuels Biodiesel can be sold for slightly less than the market value of Petrol based diesel

Why is Renew Fuels going Green with Used Cooking Oil?

It is easy to collect, store, and convert into biodiesel.
The Biodiesel produced can be used to service vehicles in the same vicinity from where the feedstock is collected
Producing Biodiesel from used cooking oil is an excellent and profitable solution
Other than sewage waste, it is the only other material abundantly available in the UAE

UCO Collection Supply Summary
Biodiesel Filling
The final product B100 biodiesel will be distributed amongst three clientele
The Logistics Company in Sharjah, accounting for approximately 65% of Renew Fuels biodiesel production
The Sharjah Transport Authority (STA), accounting for approximately 30% of Renew Fuels biodiesel production
The remaining 5% of the biodiesel will be sold to some of Renew Fuels UCO suppliers

Most trucks will be filled at the Renew Fuels production plant mini pump
The Sharjah Transport Company would need to have the diesel delivered to them via a rented Isuzu Diesel Tanker, capable of transporting 1000 gallons (3785 litres) in one trip

Supply Chain Feedstock & Biodiesel Fill diagram

Is the feedstock available in commercial quantity?
Is the technology and plant design operational?
Is the product commercially viable?
Does the company have potential for sustained growth?
Does the management have the ability to exploit the market potential and control the company through the growth phases?
Does the possible reward justify the risk?
Have all the risks associated with the business identified and mitigating factors developed.
Is the potential financial return on the investment justifiable?

Investing the sum of AED1,500,000 in Renew Fuels is surely a positive investment decision with good financial returns.
