BREH is prepared to undertake energy from waste projects from beginning to end. The projects would be completed in stages as follows:

  1. Scoping Study that identifies the client’s conditions, requirements and potential,
  2. Pre-feasibility studies to provide a project concept and a good budget quote,
  3. Feasibility Study and Business Plan to provide the basis of investment proposals,
  4. Search for Investors / Financing,
  5. Project implementation – Engineering Design & Build, Commissioning and Training.

Detailed Project Stages

Scoping Study – Step 1

The project scoping study identifies the client’s conditions taking into account such factors as:

  1. Waste availability (type (MSW, commercial, clinical and other hazardous, etc.), CV of wastes and quantities)
  2. Local policies on waste reduction and recycling and landfilling
  3. Site size, site conditions and road access
  4. Access to grid and on site power needs
  5. Proximity to heat loads and details of load (diurnal and seasonal demands) also considering options for cooling in summer
  6. Neighbour issues
  7. Local regulations on emissions and other environmental standards

Deliverables - A report that identifies

  1. Available information organized in a Project Master File
  2. The recommended concept and approach to be used for developing the project

Pre-Feasibility Study – Step 2

The pre-feasibility study develops the favoured project concept and may consider alternative concepts for comparison to choose the concept to be used and to provide a budget estimates with a +/- 30% reliability factor and to determine if the project is economically practical. This involves the following:

  1. detailed definition of the main concept and other options,
  2. preparation of concept design drawings,
  3. preparation of outline User Requirement Specifications (URS) for major equipment that will be the basis for budget equipment quotations,
  4. provide budget estimates for capital and operating costs,
  5. establish income/financing sources,
  6. develop full financials for the project (balance sheets, income/expense statements, cash flow, etc.)

Note: The URS will form the basis for obtaining proposals from technology suppliers within the constraints and objectives pertaining to Client’s requirements. The URS will become a component of the contract for supply of the equipment. Please see Attachment Nr 3 for a typical table of contents
of a URS.

Deliverables: A report that

  1. determines if the project is a “go” or no go”.
  2. compares the options available and chooses the preferred option,
  3. provides and order of magnitude budget and indicative returns ,
  4. provides concept design details.

Feasibility Study / Business Plan – Step 3

The feasibility study further develops the favoured project concept and provides a budget estimates with a +/- 10% reliability factor in order to confirm that the project is economically viable. It is also the basis for the business plan. This involves the following:

  1. fine-tuning of financial information, receiving competitive quotations,
  2. some detailed design for major components,
  3. updating of User Requirement Specifications (URS) for all major equipment that will be the basis for firm equipment quotations,
  4. update financials for the project
  5. prepare a business plan
  6. prepare a prospectus or information memorandum for financing institutions.

Deliverables include:

  1. periodic reviews with client confirming that the project is a “go” or no go”.
  2. concept design details. budget,
  3. business plan and information for funders.

Financing – Step 4

This stage involves working closely with the client to secure financing for the project by presenting
the project to both local and international financing organizations. This involves the following:

  1. distributing the prospectus or information memorandum to potential funders,
  2. addressing questions and concerns,
  3. modifying project information to suit funder requirements,
  4. addressing legal issues which may arise.

Deliverables include:

  1. client securing project financing

Project Implementation – Step 5

This stage involves the project management of the technical design and construction of the project. This involves the following:

  1. using the PM-PROformance™ project management system ( ) to get the job done properly.

Deliverables include:

  1. commissioned plant,
  2. trained personnel,
  3. option to provide plant management over agreed period
  4. handed over to the owner
