Concerns On Limited Access To Finance:

Nigerian businesses are suffering and constrained by limited access to finances, especially small and medium-term enterprises that are the engine of growth and employment generation in most developing countries.  Nigerian companies are constrained from using their comparative advantage in tackling poverty and unemployment in many ways. For instance, the cost of borrowing in Nigeria ranging between 25 and 35 percent per month, compared to less than 5-10 annual percentage in most emerging countries, and it is crippling projects actualization and performance. The internal rate of return of these enterprises are lower than the cost of accessing fund in Nigeria. Therefore, our target for financing this project depend on foreign investors, financial institutions, and financially capable reputable individuals.

Unnecessary Regulations, Bureaucracy and Corruption is killing good prospective projects and add to the cost of running business in Nigeria:

All these make Nigerian business uncompetitive relative to other countries where these factors are very minimal. A good example is the privatization of NITEL that unleashed the capacity of the telecommunication sector to generate over 3 million decent jobs and millions of indirect jobs. This has made the telecommunication an important growth propellant in Nigeria.  A similar thing is needed for the electricity and petroleum sectors to help the government generate the needed jobs and create the needed conducive environment for the private sector to serve as the engine of growth for the country.

Wealth Creation:

To Promote livelihoods is our main target. In addition to jobs creation, GABRICH PyroFuel Refinery intends to create chains of livelihood opportunities for young people in Nigeria; as part of our social corporate responsibilities. GABRICH group will continue to create entrepreneurial skills among youths and women. Youth empowerment and development shall be a primary focus of livelihoods development.

Implementation Of Local Content Policy:

An important way of creating jobs locally and reducing poverty is adding value to goods and services in Nigeria. For instance, our projects plan in the years ahead is to start converting plastic waste -to-fuel and petrochemical products. Most of the servicing companies will be localized. This is expected to be sited in Isiala Ngwa North, Abia State. The process has already been initiated. A similar approach is being put in place for the products marketing, distribution & transportation and fuel selling stations. This intends to generate local jobs, skill and experience development that will enhance entrepreneurial building in Nigeria.

Social Corporate Responsibilities:

Part of GABRICH PyroFuel Refinery philosophy; is to establish a very solid partnership with our host communities where our company and projects are located. About one percent of our net profit will be dedicated to promoting socio-economic transformation of the people.  They will cover provision of scholarships to brilliant but disadvantaged children in our core areas of operation, rehabilitation of  social services at the community level such as rehabilitation of rural roads, clinics and schools,  and provision of rural water scheme, rural electrification projects among others. Specific social safety nets will also be established for youths, Old-Aged persons, Orphans, Disability Persons, and widows.

Regional Integration:

 GABRICH PyroFuel Refinery plans to work with the government of Nigeria and other national and international business partners to promote regional integration as indicated in the Vision 2020. Our focus is helping to integrate the Nigerian economy into the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and help Nigeria operationalize the African Union Continental Freed Trade framework. On oil and gas alone, we have initiated a formidable partnership in West Africa. This will be extended to other aspects of our operations in the years ahead.

Required Raw Materials:

All kinds of plastics waste which are easy to source locally as categorized below;

 (PET (Polyethylene terephthalate)

HDPE (Highdensity polyethylene)

PE (polyethylene)

PVC (Polyvinyl chloride)

LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene)

LLDPE (Linear Low Density Polyethylene)

PP (Polypropylene)- PS (Polystyrene)

Waste to be used for firelighters (Eg): collection of below waste materials in Nigeria to produce diesel by converting plastic bags, plastic medicine bottles, Polystyrene, Milk jugs, straws, Margarine tubs and yoghurt tubs, Bottle caps, Egg cartons, Cups, plates, mayonnaise containers, Shopping bags, water bottles, juice bottles, Ketchup/ Tomato sauce bottles, medicine bottles, honey & mustard squeezable bottles, shampoo bottles, grocery store meat trays, plastic cups plates, cutlery straws, trash/ rubbish bin bags etc.

It’s not yet certain the quantity of plastic waste materials we can source per day, but we are 100% sure that we can use local workforce to achieve from 50 to 200 tones per day nationwide.  And we will be processing both waste plastic and waste car tires, using the same Pyrolysis Plant. This is because getting only waste car tires as raw materials may not be easy to achieve commercial quantity in Nigeria.

This opportunity will become a more sustainable diesel and fuel source to support manufacturing and power generation industries, government sectors as well as individuals in Nigeria.

The Western Australian Environment Protection Agency Authority (WA EPA) has released a heath impact study which proved that waste -to- energy ( fuel) plants do not cause adverse health impacts, and it has been approved and recommended to other nations like Nigeria.

According to the alliance’s report, there are more than 35 PTF systems reportedly being constructed around the world.

A market report from Transparency Market Research released early 2016, estimated that the global recycle plastic and plastic waste to oil market is set to experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.6% between 2016 and 2024. In 2014, the market was said to be worth US$ 542.8 million. By 2024, it’s therefore expected to reach US$ 1971.4 Billion.

Due to need for refined products in Nigeria and the fact that the general public sees benefits from this technology, there is no doubt that GABRICH PyroFuel Refinery will help Nigeria, to become less dependent on foreign imports of diesel even if it’s by a few percent.

Plastic Waste to fuel provides an opportunity to avoid landfill and depending on the energy input to the process (which can be high), recover a higher net percentage of the energy embedded in the plastic than would occur through conventional incineration. Our nation (Nigeria) needs energy to feed her growing industries and populations and increased recycling and waste to energy simultaneously while minimizing waste sent to land fill.

Using waste to produce energy maximizes the use of scarce resources. It presents us with an environmentally friendly source of energy (Diesel Fuel) to meet our long-term energy needs and will reduce consumption of fossil fuels. As a nation, diversifying our energy sources to include an alternative source like diesel from plastic waste will strengthen energy security and strong economy.

  • Special Note
  1. With the new disruptive process turning what was once a waste into valuable commodity, questions will inevitably get asked over the best route for materials such as waste plastic. Although better than ending up in oceans or the environment (Landfill), it is better to return plastics to their petroleum state, to recycle them into new products or even send them for energy recovering.  However, the main legislation governing waste disposal remains the Environmental Protection Act 1990. This stipulates that all producers of waste have a Duty Of Care to ensure the correct and proper management of waste is performed and states that it is unlawful to deposit, recover or depose of controlled waste without a waste management license or in a way that causes pollution of the environment or harm to human health.  There are key principles of waste regulations related to the correct Segregation, Storage, Disposal, and Documentary of waste.
  2. There is no Government policy or law resisting GABRICH PyroFuel Refinery to build waste plastics to fuel Refinery and Petrochemical plants in Nigeria
  3. There is no argument or perceived health risks that will restrict GABRICH PyroFuel Refinery for the establishment of waste plastic to diesel/fuel technology.
  4. GABRICH PyroFuel Refinery believes that plastic-to-fuels (PTF) process is one of the answers for Nigeria facing a plastics waste addition.
  5. On Completion of this Refinery, Nigeria Government will have no better option than considering waste plastic to fuel as balancing to existing recycling efforts whereby other companies like GABRICH PyroFuel Refinery will be giving license to construct plant and operate.
  6. We are urging the Federal Ministry of Environment to act in order to characterize the use of fuel (Diesel) produced from recycled plastics waste nationwide.
  7. We are also urging the Federal ministry of Petroleum to device a plan as Plaxx qualified for other companies like GABRICH PyroFuel Refinery intending to build Plastic To Fuel (PTF) plant to get plaxx qualified in order to ascertain that Plastic waste to diesel is fit for use in medium and large marine engines.  
  8. According to our research, a Plastic To Fuel (PTF) plant takes in old plastics, yet produces a petroleum product. Therefore, Nigeria regulators should make move to apply legislations that will cover both the solid waste and the oil industries, a legislation belt and braces approach.

Plants Procurements:

We are already discussing with UK, India & China based manufacturers to benchmark COST and QUALITY for the procurement of plants such as;

Pyrolysis Plant,

Pyrolysis Oil Distillation Plant,

Plastic To Lubricants Manufacturing Plant and likely joint venture for commercial plant establishment and beginning of production.
