Our Clean Energy Plant


Waste a Global Problem

Waste – a global problem faced by the civilised world.
• A global population that has passed 7 billion is creating an ever growing problem.
• Emerging economies are creating more waste as people aspire to the lifestyles of the West.
• By 2050, an estimated 9 billion people on the planet are expected to generate over 13,100 million tonnes of waste
– about 20% more than in 2009.
• The challenges we all face with waste have an impact on, and endanger, our wider environment.
• The traditional solutions of dumping or burning waste are no longer sustainable.

Waste An Opportunity

Waste can contain valuable resources.
• Argyll Energy is able to recover those valuable resources and utilise waste to produce “Green Energy”.
• The first Advanced Thermal Alambic Distillation facility is based in Sasolburg, South Africa.
• Argyll uses sources of waste tyres to feed its Sasolburg facility and will use waste tyres in its series of distillation plants in
South Africa with facilities in the UK and abroad planned for early 2016.
• Sasolburg processes the annual disposal of 4,200 tonnes of waste tyres.
• The facility is the flagship for the forthcoming Pretoria facility in South Africa and future facilities in the UK.
• Argyll Energy anticipates the Pretoria 120 tpd facility to produce “Green Energy – Green Electricity” by March 2016.

Why Tyres?

Used tyres are amongst the most visible and noxious global pollutants. Some 3 billion are produced annually and it is estimated that over 10 billion have been consigned to landfills.



Whilst Argyll Energy can process other types of waste, tyres in abundance are a readily available energy-rich resource when utilised for energy recovery.


Why South Africa?

Approximately, 70 million to 100 million waste tyres are currently located in South Africa and approximately 10 million waste tyres are added annually to this figure.

Typical Feasibility Study of Waste to Energy Projects


Argyll Energy’s Advanced Thermal Alambic Distillation Facility in Holly Country, South Africa

The feasibility study considers: 1. Project description and pre-qualification 2. Feedstock agreement (initial LOI and MOU) a) Define feedstock, including laboratory analysis. b) Plant target capacity, tonnes per day. c) Tipping Fees, gate price or cost per tonne. d) Evaluate feedstock source, including company history, underlying contracts, guarantee of term commitment. e) Define feedstock agreement terms and conditions (minimum number of years). f) MOU, LOI, Term sheets, or option for feedstock with major points committed. 3. Site location a) MOU or option on site location with terms and conditions. b) Identify existing and required infrastructure, including access to major roads, substations and transmissions lines, fuel tanks, water lines. Gas lines, rail spurs, waterways, as well as proximity to major industry that could purchase electricity or fuel. Proximity to refineries, and possible problematic site issues to be addressed. c) Identify all relevant stakeholders. d) Initial environmental site feasibility and assessment. e) Prepare site assessment report, including government agencies having jurisdiction over all site permits.

4. Off-take agreements a) MOU or LOI with specifications, price adjustment formula, terms and conditions. • Synthetic oil or refined products • Gas • Electricity • Carbon char or refined carbon black • Steel (if ELT are feedstock) 5. Preliminary engineering design a) Estimated costs for facility. 6. Project development timeline 7. Renewable credits assessment report a) Carbon credits. b) Funding. 8. Pro-forma financials 9. Business plan for project financing 10. Submission of feasibility report for consideration and financing.
