THE BIOFUEL INDUSTRY
Biofuels are fuels created from biomass conversion, as well as solid biomass, liquid fuels and various biogases. They are gaining increased public and scientific attention, driven by factors such as oil price hikes, the need for increased energy security, concern over greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels, and support from government subsidies. The demand for first- and second-generation biofuel development loans continues to increase as this sector remains an attractive market for developers and entrepreneurs. However, raising the right capital with the right conditions is one of the most difficult challenges faced by today's biofuel entrepreneurs. This is where an experienced and award-winning Merchant Banker can help.
FUNDING A BIOFUEL PROJECT
A great feature in funding biofuel projects is the fact that traditional funding instruments can be and often are used, and no special accommodations or arrangements need to be added on to a funding arrangement involving biofuels.
The best case scenario is if the developer has 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 as for investors it is a guarantee of return on their investment.
THE FUNDING PROCESS
On the business end of a biofuel project, the promoter/ project owner is required to produce essentially the same basic information and documents as he/she would in any other type of project:
Feasibility Study (if you have it)
Any and all information and documents connected with the technology to be used
We work on biofuel projects (domestic/international) in the range of $7M million - $500 million.
