THE NEXT BIG-THING (TNBT) is not the sophisticated explorations and voyages to Pluto or the Stars nor the specialty robotic gadgets or genetically modified cells in micro-bio-technology; but it would be the New Business Paradigm that simultaneously answers GLOBAL WARMING and POVERTY (GWP). The “on-the-ground” development would be brought about through sustainable development and utilization of available Renewable Resources (RR). This results in the said new business paradigm: ZERO-WASTE ZERO-CARBON BUSINESS-MODEL (ZW-ZC-BM). The practical conversions are based on processing available RR, in the forms of Vegetation/animal/human resources + sunlight/rain/air.

An example of a vegetation specie is Banana. We would be converting banana plant wastes into products such as: Energy, Bio-petrochemicals, Molded Crockery, Molded Doors/ Wood substitute and many other utilitarian products. One of the highest value added products would be Molded Household Crockery

A Kg of banana plant fiber could be converted into 2.2 Kg of Molded Crockery (a few other ingredients would also be added in the molding composite). In value terms, $0.17 worth banana fiber would become 2.2 Kg crockery, worth $23.4 (these are approximate computations) – a value addition of 137.6 (13, 760%). Another product is wood substitute board (named: Molded Strand Board, MSB). In this case, each Kg of the fiber system would be converted into 4 Kg of MSB. The unit value of a Kg in MSB is estimated @ $1.27 (about 750% of the base value of banana plant wastes).

The implications of such value-additions are many. One, the resultant Business-Model is a “high-return” proposition for any investor; Two, the potential to convert such RR into huge businesses is evident; Three, the opportunities for local village (farmland) development are immense. The value of Molded Crockery potential in 1000 ha banana plantation is a whopping $234, 000, 000 (total productions = 22, 000 tons). Even if only half of these estimates were to be practically achieved, that would still be BIG Business!

—————————————————————————-

Please note certain Facts on How 1 Kg Banana Stem Waste would become 2.2 Kg CROCKERY:

1. One “Full Size” South Indian Banana Stem/ Tree has about 50 Kg (green weight) average
2. Each such average banana tree would result in: 5 Kg Fibers (dry) + 2.5 Kg Organic Solids (dry) and 42.5 Kg water (about 28.5 Kg are recoverable)
3. The 50 Kg size Banana stem/ tree is available at site for US $0.833. This would mean that a Kg of the dry fibers are worth $0.166 (assuming there is no value for either the other Organic solids and water)
4. Each Kg of Molded Crockery would be a composite of the following: Banana Fiber = 0.454 Kg + Specialty Polymer = 0.454 + Inorganic Inert materials/ non-toxic Industrial Wastes = 0.092 Kg (Thus, every Kg of dry fiber would become 2.2 Kg of Crockery!)
5. We do not sell Crockery by weight! Instead, these are put inside excellent Packaging systems, with “Usage & care” pamphlet inside and also a pamphlet that would help the home maker know something about Cookery. All in all, these are sold as Dinner Sets, Tea/ Coffee Sets and the like. One such Set would have 4 Full Plates, 4 half Plates 4 Cups and 4 Saucers (weighing about 2.05 Kg, net), Sold to the Market @ $23.49

Looking for Entrepreneurs as Promoter-Directors

AGRO-BIOGENICS (Clean-tech) Private Limited is a newly formed company, with the following Business Objectives:

  1. To carry on all of the businesses of utilizing and recycling all available renewable resources and non-toxic wastes, resulting in non-fossil energy, engineering materials, processed foods, bio-petrochemicals, bio-fertilizer, and bio-water by using Zero-waste Zero-Carbon Business-Model, through Agro-Polymer Industry Complex Sustainability Engineered Projects (APIX-SEP), independently and through joint ventures, in India and elsewhere in the world.
  2. To define, devise, design, develop and commercialize, through industrial set up, Research and Development, industrial training or otherwise, an entirely new science and technology involved in conversions of Renewable Resources (plants, vegetation matter, animal matter, sunlight, rain and air) that would create self sustainability in the availability and general needs of the society, without excessively relying on fossil based or non-renewable resources; and to propagate these technologies within India and world wide, through Businesses or otherwise

ZERO-WASTE ZERO-CARBON BUSINESS – Banana-Plantation_example

Showcasing ZERO-WASTE ZERO-CARBON BUSINESS-MODEL (ZW-ZC-BM) through Banana Plantation wastes conversions:

We look at a project in which 200, 000 wasted banana stems (leaves and roots included) are converted into the following:

  1. Power (@ 24 x 300) ……………………………….. 550 KW
  2. Banana Fiber Substituted Molded Crockery ……. 110 T
  3. Molded Strand Boards (Wood substitute) ………. 7250 T
  4. Biofertilizer (solids) ………………………………….. 335 T
  5. GREEN” sulfur ………………………………………. 6.44 T
  6. Bio-Water …………………………………………….. 12, 176, 570 L
  7. TOTAL VALUES ………………… $13.5 million (All Energy used insitu)

THIS IS A GREEN VENTURE

This Project aims at conversion/ recycling of locally available Renewable Resources into Energy, Engineered Materials, Biofertilizer and Non-fossil based Chemicals. The ultimate objective is to reduce the gap between the “rich” and “poor”, through village development … This Pilot project would offer full time jobs to not less than 150 local village people, thereby offset migration to the cities

ISSUES INVOLVED/ ADDRESSED

This is the Pilot plant that would show-case a new Socio-Techno-Commercial-Environmental business theme, having high growth potentials and high profitability. Locally available Renewable Resources (RR) and organic/ food wastes would be the starting materials, to be converted into non-conventional energy, engineering materials, alternate petrochemicals and biofertilizer. Issues addressed through this project are:

  1. Global Warming is addressed through Clean-Tech products/ Energy, using Renewable Resources (RR)

  2. Poverty is addressed through wealth creation utilizing local RR, in village areas

  3. Need of Clean Electricity is addressed through utilization of RR (mainly organic matter and wastes)

  4. Need of substitutes for wood and fossil based engineering materials is addressed, through Composites

  5. CO2-sequestered into Carbon Sink Engineered Products (CSEP), replaces regular building materials

  6. Total recycling of non-toxic organic matter provides Biofertilizer and recyclable Bio-water

  7. The UN MDG’s are addressed through wealth creation in rural areas, without environmental degradation
