Waste Processing Plant Project Financing and Investment Model

Improving waste management through the integration of new technologies always means additional costs and the search for funding sources.

The construction of a waste processing plant may require tens of millions of euros in funding, depending on the scale and equipment used. Investing in large projects can be difficult even for companies in good financial health. Problems in attracting funding stem from the usual caution of investors. In turn, the public sector is prone to chronic scarcity of funds, which often leads to the abandonment of environmental investments that could benefit local communities.

Innovative models for attracting external funding will help to minimize these problems. These include waste processing plant project finance (PF) and public-private partnerships (PPPs) for environmental projects. Customers are attracted by the off-balance sheet nature of project finance. The creation of a separate company for the implementation of an environmental project eliminates the impact of investments on the balance sheet of a company interested in the project. As a result, the return on assets does not decrease and the company’s debt does not increase.

Havelet Finance Limited implements large environmental projects in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, South Asia and other regions of the world. We provide clients with comprehensive financial and engineering services at any stage of the project.

Lending Sources for financing environmental projects

Waste management is inevitably associated with significant investment costs. To preserve the environment and provide social services of public interest, flexible funding models are required. This usually means using different models to attract private and public capital. Project finance for the construction of waste processing plants is particularly attractive in the context of ensuring environmentally sound waste management. Funding for a project can come from several sources.

The main sources of funds for the construction of waste processing plants and landfills include private capital, bank loans and government subsidies. The choice of financing method should be approached with caution as it has important implications for the total project value, cash flows and liabilities. Conventional financing is in high demand for environmental projects when the customers are municipalities and government agencies.

However, bank loans are issued only to borrowers with high creditworthiness and only for projects that meet requirements of financial institutions. In essence, bank loans are funds that financial institutions provide to companies for a project. The loan has a fixed maturity and is paid at an agreed interest rate. There are different types of bank loans, the specific characteristics of which must be assessed before applying for financing. It is also necessary to make the right choice of a reliable financial institution.

Creation of a financial model of a waste processing plant

Financial modeling is used primarily when developing a business plan and planning the financial structure of a future company, plant or other project. The task of modeling is to transform predictive indicators and scenarios into an abstract model that provides a visual representation of the business to its owners, potential partners, lenders and investors

Essence of financial modeling

A financial modeling service can be defined as an attempt to convey the structure of a plant (sources of revenue, costs, capital structure, and external factors that affect financial performance) as a set of spreadsheets that reflect any changes in variables and show the consequences of those changes. The complex model contains profit and loss statements, a balance sheet and a calculation of the project’s financial flows and indicators with relationships between them. Financial models can be successfully used both in the case of SMEs and in the development of a large waste processing plant project, designed for several thousand tons of waste daily.

The main difference is in the complexity of modeling and the potential cost of errors. A qualitative model allows companies to predict the impact of any changes in the external or internal business environment on its financial results. Since financial models are developed taking into account the analysis of historical data, a professional team can present to the customer several different scenarios with variables that cause changes in the entire structure. Before making any financial or investment decision, this model allows project participants to predict the development and consequences of each of the scenarios. This is an important tool in the financing of waste processing plants, affecting the capital structure and sources of its financing.

Merits of the financial model for large businesses

A well-thought-out financial model provides many benefits for both business owners and potential partners. This is especially the case for capital-intensive waste management and WtE projects, where product price fluctuations, along with unsteady regulatory frameworks, create additional risks. Modeling facilitates strategic decision making.

From the moment when the consequences of a change in any financial factor are reflected visually on the chart, a mechanism for making a new decision is launched. The possible impact of changes in prices for secondary raw materials, wages, interest rates can be seen immediately after changing the corresponding variables inside the table.

The importance of a professional approach

For a waste processing plant, important production parameters such as the volume of waste processing, the volume of production of secondary raw materials, the exact ratio of the output components, as well as the consumption of electricity and gas and other items of operating costs should be taken into account. These specific data allow specialists to more accurately calculate the financial results of the project in the medium and long term, choosing the appropriate ways to finance the investment project.

The basis of the financial model of the waste processing plant is the balance sheet and cash flow information.

Depending on the structure of the enterprise, the development of the financial model is complicated by the associated waste storage and processing infrastructure, the elements of which have separate models and require smooth integration into the main model. Financial models could become much more complex than originally thought.
