Cielo owns 100% of the facility located at Aldersyde.

Renewable U Energy Inc. is a private owned corporation in Canada. Cielo has entered into Memorandums of Understanding (“MOU”) concerning 9 territories with Renewable U Energy Inc. Cielo is currently in negotiations with Renewable U to negotiate terms that would be the basis for any agreement concerning the construction of a commercial scale Cielo Waste Solutions Facility in each territory in a joint arrangement with Cielo. Pursuant to the (“MOU”) Renewable U Energy Inc. will be responsible for 100% of the costs to build and commission the facilities, and will receive 70% of the operating profits until that cost is recovered.  Cielo will receive a project management fee of 7% of construction costs for each facility, and the other 30% of operating profits while the construction costs are recovered.  After that point, Cielo will receive 50.1%, and Renewable U Energy Inc. 49.9% of profits from the ongoing operations of each Facility. Cielo will receive fees for operating each facility.

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. To date, Cielo has bench model tested 63 feedstocks in their patented process, to convert waste into fuel.

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. We would work with industrial, waste management and recycling companies. These companies would deliver a waste feedstock that 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 produces no 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.

Cielo has experimented with and have tested plastics historically which have yielded favourable initial results.   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.
