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.
Competitors and 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
Strategy of the Company Development
•Assembly of a large-scale experimental laboratory facility(a technological site) to work out the technology
•Creation of first Proof-of-Concept factory with production volume of 3,500 tons/year ASD and Bioethanol
•Rollout of technology worldwide
Production Profitability Analysis
5 Tons Rice Husks
1ton of ASD
1 ton of BioEthanol
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
2018 our proof on concept plant produces and sells 3,500 tons ASD
Capacity: 20 000 tons ASDannually / per factory
We are looking for:
