Cielo Waste Solutions Corp. (“Cielo”) FAQ’s

Cielo is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Suite 1100, 605 – 5th Avenue SW, T2P 3H5. Please note the Vancouver address is for the legal office. #610 – 475 West Georgia Street, Vancouver BC V6B 4M9

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.  

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 other material information, such as construction timelines, expansion plans and any other milestones that could impact the share price. Any comments to individual shareholders can only be made with information that has already been press released. These Press Releases can also be found on our website under Newsroom.

Cielo owns 100% of the facility located at Aldersyde.

Renewable diesel uses renewable feedstocks to produce a very similar diesel to fossil derived diesel. This allows a higher mixed blend ratio to biodiesel. Renewable diesel has very little water compared to biodiesel which allows it to be used 12 months per year. Biodiesel is made mostly from agriculture feedstocks, such as canola and soybeans. Cielo believes it will have an advantage over biodiesel on production costs, as Cielo uses waste for feedstock whereas the biodiesel typically utilizes food crops.

The Aldersyde demonstration facility is currently converting wood waste into fuel. Cielo has tested its process with several waste feedstocks and the process can utilize all fibrous materials including organics, wood waste (sawdust, bark, paper recycling products, cardboard, railroad ties, etc.), tires, municipal solid waste, blue box recycling, and all types of plastic.

Yes, Cielo is not a waste company. Cielo works with industrial companies as well as recycling companies. These companies will deliver a waste feedstock that is clear and free of metal, rock, dirt and glass. They will also remove some of the water content as well as pre-grind the waste.

Cielo is currently producing diesel and naphtha. Kerosene (aviation/marine fuel) can also be distilled from the distillate produced through the use of Cielo’s technology.

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 low pressure and produced so harmful emissions.

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

There are seven resin identification codes (RIC), currently only #1 polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and #2 high-density polyethylene (PE-HD) are recyclable.  Cielo intends to increase its focus on studying #3 through #7 plastics as a feedstock for the production of waste-to-fuel products.  Cielo’s business model is migrating to not only convert the plastic we have here in Canada and the US but also to become an importer of plastic waste.
