AFLINC will offer funding for waste management projects (.....worldwide!
Waste-to-energy (WtE) or energy-from-waste (EfW) is the process of creating energy in the form of electricity or heat from the incineration of waste source. Most WtE processes produce electricity directly through combustion, or produce a combustible fuel commodity, such as methane, methanol, ethanol or synthetic fuels.
Incineration is the most common WtE implementation. Modern incinerators reduce the volume of the original waste by 95-96% and according to the New York Times, modern incineration plants are so clean that "many times more dioxin is now released from home fireplaces and backyard barbecues than from incineration. "

What is biomass and how does it work? Project Range: $5M-$500M+
Biomass, as a renewable energy source, is derived from five distinct energy sources: garbage, wood, waste, landfill gases, and alcohol fuels. As an energy source, biomass can either be used directly, or converted into other energy products such as biofuel and electricity.
Biomass is plant matter used to generate electricity with steam turbines & gasifiers or produce heat, usually by direct combustion. Examples include forest residues, yard clippings, wood chips and even municipal solid waste. It also includes plant or animal matter that can be converted into fibers or other industrial chemicals, including biofuels. Industrial biomass can be grown from numerous types of plants. Biochemical conversion processes from biomass can be harnessed and converted to other usable forms of energy like methane gas or transportation fuels like ethanol and biodiesel.
A great feature in funding biomass energy projects is the fact that
1) traditional funding instruments can be used, and
2) no special accommodations or arrangements need to be added on to a funding arrangement involving biomass.
The best case scenario is if you (as project promoter/owner) an off-take agreement (agreement in which a third party that has signed a contract guaranteeing that they will be buying the promoter's output for a certain length of time in the future right from the start).
Why? Because for investors it is a guarantee of return on their investment, not to mention that it is also a steady guaranteed payment on the debt of the equipment due to the fact that the energy produced is sold over the long term (thus, there is a guaranteed income).
