Cielo Provides Update on the Desulfurization Process and Announces Partial Repayment of Loan Following Warrant Exercise
March 8, 2021 (Source) — Cielo Waste Solutions (CSE:CMC), (OTC:CWSFF), (CNSX:CMC.CN), (WKN:C36) (“Cielo” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on its desulfurization process and also announces the partial exercise of warrants by its largest secured lender, BJK Holding Ltd., and the consequent partial repayment of its secured loan.
Cielo has been in collaboration with the University of Calgary to pioneer a scalable, cost-effective solution to decrease the sulfur content in its renewable diesel. Cielo has completed the fabrication of a bench-scale system that has 1,000 times more throughput than the University of Calgary’s demonstration laboratory unit, which provided Cielo with proof-of-concept data. Extremely successful tests have been completed on Cielo’s renewable diesel using the new process. Cielo’s goal was to meet the highway diesel specification of 15ppm or less of sulfur. Late Friday, Cielo received laboratory results that indicated the successful reduction of the sulfur content to approximately 5ppm, well below the required specifications. Cielo will now proceed with scaling up desulphurization efforts in light of this breakthrough.
Don Allan, President and CEO of Cielo, stated, “We are very pleased to announce the successful completion of testing of the desulfurization process and that we’ve resolved the desulfurization issue. Now, with funds in-hand, we are fabricating the equipment for installation at our facility in Aldersyde, Alberta.”
Partial Warrant Exercise and Loan Repayment:
Cielo also announces that the Company’s largest secured lender, BJK Holdings Ltd. (the “Lender”), has exercised 10,000,000 of its warrants for approximately $1M in proceeds. Cielo has applied this payment against the approximately $3.85M owing to the Lender. It is Cielo’s intention to pay off the full balance of the loan by the end of March 2021.
“We are pleased to demonstrate our ongoing confidence in Cielo and its leadership team by way of this initial warrant exercise”, said David Thiessen of BJK Holdings Ltd. “We are excited to be part of a company that is commercializing innovative green technology that has the potential for transformational global impact, and we look forward to continuing to deepen our relationship with Cielo in the months and years to come”.
