    Waste Processing Plant Project Financing and Investment Model

    By HAVELET FINANCE

    Published May 22 

    Waste Processing Plant Project Financing and Investment ModelImproving 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...

    Finance and Technology; Basic Principles

    By HAVELET FINANCE

    Published May 12 

    Finance and Technology have always been intertwined, from the invention of the abacus to make financial calculations easier to the mammoth supercomputers that are used to drive complex financial models today. The fintech industry was born out of that merger, and now the majority of financial activity is carried out on mobile phones, enabling more people to have access to financial services. Technological disruptions over the last few decades have changed how we communicate, talk, make purchases, and do business. Emerging technologies in the financial services industry have consistently disrupted how consumers interact with their money, what they expect from financial institutions, and how those organizations operate. Today, new technologies make processes easier, more efficient, reduce errors, improve communication, and change how consumers see and interact with money...

    The Witty Farmer" Grab 'n' Grow Greenhouse

    I made it to where it's a "modern day roadside stand." I figured out how to use existing technology to make it where I am able to continue planting the row crops (corn & soybeans), without having to stop & meet customers, & continue to service my existing customers & new ones. It's been A LOT of work, starting all of these plants from seed by myself, but I'm pretty proud of how things have progressed thus far.

    Dusted in some cotton seed today. It'll take a rain to bring these up. We plant cotton very shallow because of the propensity of the ground to crust over after heavy rain.

    Current Trends and challenges for Renewable Energy Project Finance

    By HAVELET FINANCE

    Published Apr 17 

    Current trends, challenges and opportunities for Renewable Energy project finance cannot be over emphasized. Looking back at 2020 and the development of renewable resources, notwithstanding the COVID-19 pandemic, renewable energy continues to be a rapidly growing segment of the economy. In first three quarters of 2020, 70% of all new U. S. power capacity came from renewable energy, almost entirely solar and wind...

    Why choose ENTRY
    ENTRY round balers are built with the same principles as the most advanced machines. It has been designed for the user looking for excellent productivity and reliability combined with low operation costs and ease of use.
    The ENTRY is a robust round baler, with excellent quality to price ratio, created to be used with lower horse-powered tractors. The compact size gives the ENTRY impressive maneuverability in small fields and stability in hilly country.

    Thought on vertical farming... don't think it is the future, but believe its part of the future. And, a good hack against the impending 2050 food crisis.

    @TractorTimeWithTim checks out the Maschio Sickle Bar Mower. It is designed for mowing hay. However, it also proves to be a decent ditch bank and pond bank mower for a Subcompact tractor such as a Deere 1025r or a Kubota BX.
