Green Fund Finance General FAQ
Green Fund Finance was created with the vision to become the first choice for financing innovative green technologies by offering a competitive solid financing solution for the market. In essence, what we offer is a staple GFF Certificate based financing solution that’s build on the Blockchain-technology. Currently we are financing Swestep’s €400 million orders from around the world.
Green Fund Finance created 10 billion (10,000,000,000) certificates – initially valued at €1 per certificate. The GFF Certificate System is set up on the Blockchain to ensure full transparency and investment security. However, not all certificates are released at once. We’ve released 43,000,000 certificates for the first plant - which are available now - and when a plant is 70-80% funded we release certificates corresponding to the construction cost of the next signed Swestep plant. When new certificates are released in phase 2 (or 3, or 4 etc.) they can not be sold for €1 as this will devalue the existing certificates already sold (as their market value might have increased). Therefore, when GFF releases new certificates to be sold to finance a new Swestep plant, they will be released at the current token value of the day the sale is initiated.
The investors as a group are becoming partners with the owners of these production plants – and then sharing the revenue generated with the plant owners 50/50. Essentially the investors are investing to get half the proceeds from the environmentally friendly conversion of waste into CO2-neutral fuels, new plastics, or other types of useful hydrocarbons in various industries. Green Fund Finance will use this revenue to buy back the certificates originally sold to investors at market price (but never lower than €1.20 per token) as soon as the plants starts generating income after approximately 12-18 months.
All organic waste can be used:
· Biomass (C-3 and C-4 plants), wood, biogenies residues like leaves, straws etc.
· All kinds of plastics and synthetic materials (PVC, PP, PET etc.)
· Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and Industrial Waste.
· Fish rinse , slaughter residuals
· Waste oil (also contaminated oil), refinery residues, bitumen etc.
· Agricultural waste
The costs of the feedstock can have a significant impact on the economics of the end product produced. Swestep solves these risks by keeping the feedstock options open as the plant processes a wide variety of input material, ranging from municipal and industrial waste to all forms of biomass. In other words, all types of organic residues including plastics, but excluding inert materials such as glass and metals, are appropriate as feedstock.
No, there is a big difference: Swestep Plants do not have any chimney and operate at a low temperature with no pressure (-0,5 Bar). Futhermore, no dangerous cancerogenic emissions (like dioxins and furans) are emitted, as opposed to high temperature processes like gasification and pyrolysis.
