Vtormat Investment Fund finance development projects of sustainable landfills which concern development of semi-aerated landfill sites with proven long-term sustainability. This is an alternative and sustainable source because waste is all the time in excess and could not be exhausted so far the humans live on Earth and it is an accessible, reliable, alternative source of power.

At Vtormat Investment Fund, the financing projects options for MSW sustainable landfill developments comprise funding technologies that can involve debt and/or equity injection. We are able to ensure up to 100% debt capitalization which is accessible for appropriate business types. Other variants can comprise up to 100% loan to cost/value by using debt in conjunction with equity infusion. A typical correlation of debt to equity can be 90% / 10% but may differ according to the business type. The first important project demands for financing sustainable landfill development is clearly to obtain the land. It is not so terrifying if you empower this challenge to be solved by the appropriate professional consultant. The developing of landfill may be accomplished with 100% debt and/or equity as previously mentioned having a seriously prepared business plan. This signifies minimal investment demands from the financiers and developers. On the programs with 100% debt only, payment grace periods for up to about 3 years admit your cash flow settling before servicing the debt is demanded. Some creditor/depositors don’t claim the securitization or mortgage of physical assets for loan destinations. The programs with 100% debt permit to the sponsors to hold all of the equity among themselves. The tax credits are actually held down by the financiers on these programs. The schedules of payment amortization reaching 20 years allow a settled cash flow.

Developing such kind of projects showed that utilization of semi-aerobic process in the form of remediation tool reduce the hazards and risks which were typically determined in anaerobic waste milieu (great pathogen mortality and lower methane). Therefore in waste milieu where in the past the excavation could be dangerous, semi-aerobic landfill projects can be held to permit waste mining after their degradation.

We at Vtormat Investment Fund provide the necessary financing to sustainable landfill development so that we can reap the otherwise lost in vain organic resource after treatment to be used as compost. From wood and paper, food waste or garden waste, the remnants still contain a component of cellulose, a sugar in organics that links with the lignin to provide the structure. The microorganisms living in the landfills decompose this cellulose into methane gas, which in the end rises to the exterior and the atmosphere. Methane is an influential greenhouse gas that effects negatively our environment.

In modern society the average European citizen discard about 2 kg of waste everyday. We are producing more and more waste that goes to landfills. The compactly populated cities have no enough space for new landfill sites to store all this waste. These sites would have maximum benefit from the power production as this source of fuel is accessible and sustainable in large and continuous basis. With the sustainable landfills the environmental contamination is noticeably reduced. In 500 kg of common waste, more than 400 kg can be used as fuel to generate electricity. In general from 4 t of waste can be generated about 2 MWh of electricity which is sufficient to heat 200 apartments for one day. From 4 t of waste can be produced more than 1 to of biofuel.
