VayuGrid's partner for community scale biodiesel refining in India, The BioCube Corporation from Canada, was working in Haiti and introduced VayuGrid to the key players in Haiti. We quickly developed a partnership with Sonamar S. A. who has been working post the recent Haiti tragedies to bring technology and agriculture projects to help accelerate the rehabilitation of the environment and develop opportunities to drive economic growth. Sonamar recently signed an agreement with the Ministry of Agriculture in Haiti for the development of biofuels and has access to significant land in Haiti - both arable and non-arable.
Jointly VayuGrid and Sonamar developed a plan for implementation of BioEnergy Zones in multiple stages to meet the needs of the Haitian people, environment, and economy.
Do you have any plans in creating BioEnergy Zones in India?
Yes, we just started a project with a mining company in Rajasthan to establish a large BioEnergy Zone as part of their mining reclamation and CSR statutory compliance. Over the next several years we expect this to scale to thousands of acres.
We are also in discussion with several other India mining companies across India, based on the unique properties of VayuSap to remediate the land, produce clean energy, and develop a sustainable platform for jobs to remote communities. Therefore, all the environmental and community compliances are addressed in a financial model that brings 60 years of benefits to the mining operations.
