Bioenergy market development

Abstract

Pellet Mexico is nowadays developing the scarcely explored biomass and bioenergy market in Mexico. Utilizing residues from the forestry food and agriculture industries we are going to produce solid biofuel that can substitute fossil fuel consumption both in the industrial, tourism and domestic sectors. By covering the whole value chain of producing the biofuel, commercializing it and adapting the industry and domestic sectors for biofuel consumption, Pellet Mexico will contribute to develop a green economy by efficiently managing residues form the forestry, food and agricultural industries, transfer a competitive advantage to the industry by reducing approximately by 40% the thermic based energy consumption costs and minimize CO2 emissions, thereby contributing to a low carbon economy, to the diversification of renewable energies in our country and support the global commitment to combat climate change.

Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Our main customers are both the industry and domestic sectors with thermic energy needs. We provide a renewable energy solution, solid biofuel, that subtitutes fossil fuel consumption in any boiler, oven, furnace or kiln and also in any domestic application for water heating and ambient heating.

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

The main markets are both those industry and domestic applications that produce and generate heat. The pellet production substitutes diesel and LP Gas, and presents a more cheaper and green alternative. We can reduce energy consumption costs, based on these fossil fuels, by around 40% and produce neutral carbon emissions, contributing to a low carbon economy and to the global combat against climate change.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

The main attributes for its success are the regional development model in which we identify and guarantee the biomass volume with local partners and stakeholders. But also the actual efforts both national and international that are trying to foster the diversification of the renewable energy market, those efforts contributing to a low carbon economy and the actual combat to climate change. Also the advantages in our country are that we have a very rich country in natural resources and a very intense agricultural production that does not utilize its residues and has to date a lot of problems in dealing with the residue management. By contributing to a culture of residue management, adding value to the residues derived form agriculture and giving them an energy oriented use that is both renewable and cost effective, Pellet Mexico brings all the elements together for the development of a whole new market and value chain with lots of potential in Mexico.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

Our team is built on very broad experience in different fields. The combination of them will allow to execute the project successfully. Of our four founders, one has an ten years experience developing the biomass market in Spain, other has a very experienced career in logistics, which will contribute to all our cost effective opportunities in the field, our CEO has a broad consulting experience in Mexico and an ample trajectory in project management. And finally our last founding member has an very long experience in the public sector in Mexico and has worked with very important firms in the private sector, delivering thus a very worthy network that can enhance our developing efforts.
