Aqua Tractata Services LTD, a British Virgin Islands registered company offers stable medium and long-term income through investments in Design Build Own & Operate (DBOO), Build Own Transfer (BOT) and Build Lease Transfer (BOLT) decentralized wastewater treatment plants. DBOO projects are evergreen with water purchase agreements; BOT projects have a minimum 15-year concession with Water-as-a-Service (WaaS) agreements and BOLT plants have a maximum 7-year lease term.
Aqua Tractata Services LTD is a 100% subsidiary of LifeQuest World Corp. (USA OTC: LQWC- www.lifequestcorp.com). LifeQuest is responsible for selecting opportunities to invest in and carry out engineering, procurement, construction, installation and operation of all plants through in-country partners. LifeQuest World Corp and subsidiaries/partners have successfully installed over 30 wastewater treatment plants in water stressed countries and are currently active in eight countries.
The global water and wastewater market in 2018 hit $695 billion. Municipal markets were growing at a 6.4 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) compared to the industrial segment, which was growing slightly faster at a 7.5 percent CAGR. Some wastewater technology segments are growing even faster, driven by increasing demand for membrane-based solutions and smart, internet-enabled and digital solutions. Advancements in chemistry, membranes, sensors and industrial internet of things (IIoT) are spurring the adoption of higher-performance water and wastewater solutions and are enabling new business models.
Currently, wastewater treatment is based on large centralized facilities with piping infrastructure designed to capture economies of scale. Given the challenges of centralized systems, large cities are moving towards decentralizing distributed solutions because incremental system improvements can be more economical and yield greater compliance and resilience.
The continued rise in wastewater spending highlights an industry on the verge of transforming towards distributed solutions that are cheaper and more technologically advanced.
Some countries like Israel are leading the way by recycling and reusing over 90 percent of its municipal wastewater, mostly for irrigation via centralized municipal treatment systems. By comparison, California leads the U.S. by recycling just 5 percent of its municipal wastewater, usually with centralized treatment plants, indicating considerable room for expansion into a large market opportunity. Data indicates that the distributed wastewater market is growing quickly into a significant opportunity with a market size forecast to grow from $13.3 billion in 2016 to $21.8 billion in 2021.
Since the food and beverage industry (F&B) attracts the largest share of capital expenditures for wastewater treatment of any industry, according to Global Water Intelligence, we will be financing the building of Design Build Own & Operate (DBOO), Build Own Transfer (BOT) and Build Lease Transfer (BOLT) decentralized wastewater treatment plants. DBOO projects are evergreen with water purchase agreements; BOT projects have a minimum 15-year concession with Water-as-a-Service (WaaS) agreements and BOLT plants.
F&B provides opportunity for project financing of distributed wastewater treatment and reuse plants in the U.S Europe, Africa and Asia. F&B businesses generate high volumes and loads of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and are seeing significant numbers of new facilities come online.
Onsite water treatment provides significant economic advantages because of the growth of new F&B facilities, the increase in surcharges and fines per pound of BOD placed on these facilities.
Among industrial sectors buying smart, packaged wastewater systems, F&B is expected to see the fastest growth. Additionally, F&B spent $26 billion on structures and equipment in 2017, second only to Chemicals, and added 7,000 new facilities between 2014 and 2018 when compared to Chemicals, which added 1,879 facilities.
Below are the first three wastewater treatment plants to be financed by Aqua Tractata Management Ltd.
1) Morgan Beef (South Africa)
Abattoir wastewater treatment plant
The Morgan Beef Group was established in the late 1990’s, the company has developed into a substantial business operation and is, without doubt, considered to be one of South Africa’s leading meat providers and exporters. The Morgan Beef Group is vertically integrated from feedlot to processing and comprises of three main business units, namely:
Morgan Abattoir – our meat wholesale, deboning and beef export-approved slaughterhouse
Morgan Agri – our agronomy and feedlot operation; and
Morgan Hides – our wet blue leather tanning facility.
Morgan Beef is the leading producer of certified Wagyu beef. It also has a strong commitment to the environment and is an expansion phase.
2) Summerpride Foods (South Africa)
Wastewater treatment plant
Summerpride (SPF) is a leading pineapple concentrate producer/supplier for the International Beverage Industry. It currently works with 23 growers to process their production. The SPF process is water positive i.e. more wastewater leaves the site than is purchased from the municipality, – this is due to the water evaporated from the pineapple juice and some process wastewater from their tenants – Dynamic Brands will readily buy any water recovered in excess of SPF’s requirement. The plant will use Abrimix (LifeQuest World Corp Partner) as primary treatment followed by ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis.
3) LifeQuest Karadayi Turkey
Wastewater treatment plant
Established in 1970, Istanbul based Karadayı has been operating a fleet of 35 vacuum trucks with Licenses for removal of domestic and industrial wastewater and other services. Profoks (LifeQuest Workd Corp Partner) is the provider of proven state-of-the-art technology that can treat a mix of extremely contaminated industrial wastewater to discharge standards.
The plant will be a Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) with an initial capacity of 200 m3/day with flexibility to treat up to 220 m3/day in case of lower contaminated water. Karadayi will haul the water to the CETP and Profoks will install, commission and operate the plant. Karadayi and Profoks will invest in the plant as well. The treatment cost of the type of industrial wastewater that the plant will treat, ranges from $8/m3 to $40/m3 for hazardous wastewater.
