Risilica. Presentation for APEC

  1. 1. RISILICA Transforming waste into profitable products
  2. 2. Unrelated Challenges •High cost •High energy consumption •Harmful to the environment •Bulk waste: 145 mlntons of husk, 750 mlntons of straw annually worldwide •Rice husk combustion causes CO2emission •Waste putrefaction causes methane emission Rise husks utilization Amorphous silicon dioxide (ASD) production
  3. 3. Preparation of rice husk/straw Fermentation Thermal processing, pyrolysis Ethanol Organic Acids ASD Purity 99.9% Risilicatechnology Risilica’s Waste Utilization
  4. 4. Demand for amorphous silicon dioxide (ASD): Market of amorphous silica CAGR > 5% 10++years (Source: Milestone analytics); 2016 forecast for ASD world consumption $ 6,4 B 55% of consumption in Tire Industry Our Initial Target Market: Tires The tire industry is relying heavily on amorphous silica. Mainstream manufacturers (such as Pirelli) promote this application in there annual reports. Adhesives, sealants •Many applications Сonstruction •New materials Additional markets
  5. 5. Competitors and advantages Competitors Risilicatechnology advantages Utilizationof rice husks Rice Husk is typicallyburnedandresulting heatconvertsintothermal and electricity energy. 5 ton of rice husk = 140 USD Higher economic efficiency. 5 ton of rice husk yields1200 USD at a cost of 400 USD for a profit of 800 USD 5 tons of rice husks can get finished products onlyto 140USD (according to the prices of electricity in Russia) Production of ASD •Low cost of the primary raw material; •6 to 8 times reduction of capital costs for construction of a-Si production facilities; •The production process is completely eco-friendly (clean) which allows to minimize the environmental safety costs •reducing the self cost of both products
  6. 6. Strategy of the Company Development Stage I 2011-2013 •R&D •Assembly of a large-scale experimental laboratory facility(a technological site) to work out the technology Stage II 2014-2017 •Creation of first Proof-of-Concept factory with production volume of 3,500 tons/year ASD and Bioethanol Stage III 2017 •Rollout of technology worldwide •Going public
  7. 7. Financials assumptions Production Profitability Analysis Product type Yield Sales $ Costs $ Profit $ 5 Tons Rice Husks RisilicaProcess 1ton of ASD 1200 400 800 Wasteutilization 1 ton of BioEthanol 300 100 200 CombinedProfit 1000 Net Sales 5,25 mlnUSD Costs 1,75 mlnUSD In 2018 we start to build 5 factory Investment Need: 15 mlnUSD/factory Net Sales by 2022 ASD: 120 mlnUSD Bioethanol: 30 mlnUSD 2018 our proof on concept plant produces and sells 3,500 tons ASD Capacity: 20 000 tons ASDannually / per factory
  8. 8. We are looking for: 10 million USD as the 2ndround investmentfor construction of a plant and production of high-quality ASD & Bioethanol Strategic partners in each world region 1 2
