Aspiring to lead the waste-to-fuels industry using environmentally friendly, economically sustainable technology.

We offer exposure to an early mover that has an opportunity to both define and capture market share in the waste-to-fuel industry. At our Aldersyde Facility, we have achieved proof of concept for our technology, and our ongoing advancement to commercialization will occur in the context of an investor driven ESG boom supported by industry and government agendas to reduce the carbon intensity of fuel.

Cielo is aiming to transform most household and industrial waste currently directed to landfills into valuable fuel. Our facilities will be designed to operate without harmful emissions, and we can help greatly reduce methane emissions from landfills, as well as reduce reliance on imported biofuels made from agricultural products.

PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGY

To produce high-quality fuels and the elimination of waste

LOW INPUT COSTS

Comprised of the most available, inexpensive feedstock from which the potential exists to generate “tipping” fees

ESG-CENTRIC BUSINESS MODEL

We are focused on reducing emissions and GHGs and continually reducing the carbon intensity of our fuels

CARBON CREDIT UPSIDE

We will target the production of low carbon, renewable, and biofuels

The Path Forward

2022 Milestones & Objectives
Aldersyde

  • Phase I: Mid-June 2022Commissioning of Aldersyde Facility completed.  Results to date indicate historic plugging that inhibited steady-state production now resolved.  Quality of distillate produced showing significant improvement in quality, including reduction in particulate.  In addition to successful implementation of Cielo-designed reactor waste management system, expectations for demonstration of steady-state production in June 2022.
  • Phase II: September 2022 – Intended commissioning of redesign of Aldersyde Facility to attain designation as 1,000-lph commercial facility, and to further facilitate design of full-scale wood waste to fuel facility.  Paused due to inflationary cost pressures.  Cielo strategy to focus on utilization of cost-effective R&D Demonstration Facility for economic scale-up of process for design of commercial facilities.
Research and Development (R&D) Demonstration Facility

  • April 2022 Construction commenced for 60-lph R&D Demonstration Facility.
  • Q3 2022 Commissioning of 60-lph R&D Demonstration Facility.
  • Q4 2022 – Commence testing of plastic waste at R&D Demonstration Facility.
2023 Forecast Milestones
  • Design – initiate full-scale, commercial waste-to-fuel Facility.
  • Refine details – in terms of scope, volume, cost, and timing of construction of a Full-Scale Facility.
  • Seek strategic relationships – with waste producers, recycling companies, and fuel customers.
  • Continuum of R&D – continue testing of multiple infeed stocks (plastics, railway ties, organics, etc.), catalysts, carrier fluid, and technologies.
  • Further enhance quality of production – through reduction of carbon intensity, and identify successive locations with proper logistics for waste and fuel distribution.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who owns Cielo?

Cielo is a publicly traded company on the TSXV using the trading symbol CMC, and also on the OTCQB using the trading symbol CWSFF. We also trade on the Frankfurt (36.F) exchange in Germany.

What information is Cielo able to provide with respect to operations updates and other timelines?

With Cielo being publicly traded on several exchanges including the TSXV, operational updates can only be given in formal news releases to ensure a fair and equitable distribution of material information to all our shareholders. This would apply to any material information, such as construction timelines, expansion plans, and any other milestones that could impact the share price. Any comments to individual shareholders or individuals interested in Cielo can only be made with information that has already been press released. Press Releases can be found on our website under News & Media.

Who owns the Facility in Aldersyde?

Cielo owns 100% of the facility located at Aldersyde.

What type of waste products can Cielo’s facility receive and convert to renewable fuels?

The Aldersyde Facility is currently converting wood waste into fuel, and its process has been tested with several waste feedstocks.  Testing at Cielo’s Research and Development (R&D) Demonstration Facility will determine the commercial viability of all fibrous materials including organics, wood waste (sawdust, bark, recycling products, cardboard, railway ties, etc.), rubber, municipal solid waste, blue box recycling, and plastic.

What type of fuels can you produce?

Cielo has the capability to produce diesel and naphtha. With the addition of certain equipment, Cielo can produce kerosene (aviation/marine fuel) through the use of Cielo’s technology.

How is this technology different from pyrolysis?

The process of pyrolysis uses high temperature, high pressure and burns the waste streams producing a toxic ash and high emissions. Cielo’s technology operates at a lower temperature and pressure and produces no harmful emissions.

Can your facility take a variety of waste products at the same time?

We are currently processing wood waste at the Aldersyde Facility. Facility design will likely focus on single feedstocks based on availability in close proximity to a facility.

Can you convert plastics?

Cielo’s technology can convert waste plastic to fuel. Following the construction of our Research and Development (R&D) Demonstration Facility, Cielo intends to commence testing for commercial scale plastic-to-fuel processing.
