The Nomad Model
This is our signature
A new business model uniting ecosystems and leveraging plastic pyrolysis to end plastic pollution and restore nature in biodiversity hotspots
Building regenerative blue ecosystems
Profitable & Resilient
Collaborative & Inclusive
We start from fragmented ecosystems:
Plastic pollution and biodiversity loss affect every component of biodiversity hotspots and remote coastal areas where we work: local communities, businesses and the biodiversity itself. Yet, collaborations between the Parties to significantly address these crises are yet to be implemented even if all of them have personal interests to make things change.
Mainstream situation: a lot of obstacles to be overcome at once
Low community engagement & education
& limited actions)
Lack of waste management infrastructure
High & increasing cost of energy (affecting communities & businesses)
Limited financial resources allocated to waste management & nature conservation
(few to zero actions)
Example of the economic mechanisms within the Model
This social business model guarantees that each component will be able to be funded: revenue-generating activities (waste management and local businesses) allocating a budget for necessary non-profit activities (community engagement & conservation).
The strength of the model is that it is self sufficient locally and additional donations to NGOs will enable the operations to grow faster but are no longer a mandatory condition.
A model to avoid, reduce and sequester carbon
of CO2 emissions compared to the mainstream alternative
-175 TCO2 eq
through plastic collection and avoiding open burning and landfilling
for fuel production via pyrolysis compared to fossil fuels
for fuel consumption (pyrolysis fuel vs fossil fuels)
100 TCO2 eq
remaining to offset
0.12 ha of mangroves
Environmental, Social, Economic Externalities & Impact
Our Model is designed to maximize positive externalities and avoid or absorb as much negative externalities as possible: we generate revenue to make the cycle work and end up reducing and avoiding some mainstream emissions and a generating positive impact on the biodiversity as well as creating jobs, improving livelihoods and foster economic development and resilience.
