LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 14, 2021 / Clean Vision Corporation (OTC PINK:CLNV), a holding company that acquires and operates sustainable clean tech and green energy businesses, today announced that its Clean-Seas subsidiary has signed a binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with IKYAYO Investment Holdings a civil equipment and infrastructure investment development company in the Republic of Cameroon, the Cemac and Ecowas zone of countries.
With the execution of this MOU, Cameroon will become the first host nation within the Clean-Seas global Plastic Conversion Network (PCN) which intends to aggregate the developed world's waste-plastic stockpiles and convert it using pyrolysis technology plants - into high-value, environmentally friendly energy and commodities. Using the Company's proprietary technology, waste-plastic can now be collected, transported and converted in a transparent manner giving rise to a new level of environmental accountability.
Cameroon is located at the junction of western and central Africa. Its population of over 25 million is one of the most urban populations in western Africa. The MOU was executed during Clean Vision Chief Executive Officer Dan Bates' trip this month through the mid-east and southeast Asia to personally negotiate and sign agreements to begin building out the Clean-Seas PCN.
Commenting on the landmark MOU, Clean Vision Chief Executive Officer Dan Bates said,
- "The planet is awash in waste plastic most of which is generated by developed nations. Recent geopolitical changes mean they can no longer pay to ship it to be dumped into undeveloped countries' landfills, rivers or incinerated.
- Less developed nations have the room and labor for waste-plastic pyrolysis conversion plants to be built and maintained. They want the jobs and to share in the revenue from commodities these plants produce.
"We unveiled the PCN six weeks ago, and already we have our first deal in place with numerous ongoing discussions for additional Host countries underway. Securing the first deal is always the hardest and, now that we have, we expect other countries to follow suit quickly.
"ESG and underdeveloped Africa investing is driving massive new capital investment from China, Europe, Middle East and the US so project financing should be readily available," Mr. Bates continued. "Along with securing additional nations' and cities' commitments to host our PCN, our next steps are negotiating definitive agreements, and then obtaining regulatory permits which tend to be expedited in much of Africa and Latin America where we have other deals in process. All of which will take us into 2022 which I expect will prove an extremely exciting year."
The primary MOU deal points are:
- Land for the storage and conversion of the waste plastic
- Access to all necessary utilities to run the conversion facilities
- A tax holiday for Clean-Seas as permitted within the tax laws of each country, based on the direct foreign investment amount for each project and government approval.
- Access to local (deep-water) port for the offloading of waste-plastic
- Access to waste-plastic feedstock from neighboring countries
- Local content participation and training
- In-country availability of Clean, low-sulphur fuels produced from the processing facility at a competitive rate.
- Local labor training
IKYAYO's management wrote, "Cameroon, the CEMAC and ECOWAS Zone of countries have waste plastic problems and establishing a means of recycling this waste into environmentally friendly products is in alignment with government's initiatives. We look forward to become a valuable addition to the PCN and are eager to get started as soon as possible."
