SAN DIEGO, April 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via InvestorWire — Astra Energy Inc. (OTCQB: ASRE) (“Astra” or the “Company”), is proud to announce an initial equipment sale and the formation of a joint venture with Astra Regreen India (“ARI”), an Indian corporation. ARI will hold exclusive rights for sales, marketing and distribution and establish a first-of-its-kind Municipal Recovery Waste Facility (“MRF”) in the Southern States of the Republic of India.
Astra will receive a project deposit of $100,000 USD, an equipment deposit of $1,800,000 USD for the sale of the first 15 Ton Per Hour (“TPH”) Regreen Total Waste System (“TWS”), and the balance first tier from operations. Upon successful implementation of the first installation, ARI is required to place orders for five more Regreen TWSs ranging between 3TPH to 15TPH capacity within 36 months. Additionally, Astra will hold a carried interest in the revenues of all future projects within the territory.
The “India Green Project” will consist of constructing a 30,000-square-foot facility at a designated landfill that will initially host a 15TPH Regreen TWS to process a minimum of 300 tons of municipal solid waste and agricultural waste per day. The landfill will provide a 25-year concession on land and feedstock (MSW and agricultural waste). Once processed through the Regreen TWS, the output will consist of low sulfur, bacteria and odor-free, high BTU and calorific-value energy pellets, as well as other valuable and marketable commodities to be sold in the global market. The first deployment will begin within six months.
“India has a huge challenge in the manner in which it must address its mammoth existing and ever-growing garbage problem. With the Regreen Total Waste System, we have the unique opportunity to solve this problem in a responsible way and have a truly positive impact on the environment,” stated Anand Shanmugam, president of Astra Regreen India.
“Demonstrating the business case for the first MRF in the Republic of India that will divert 95% of its waste from the landfill is something Astra is looking forward to. India has the potential to be a huge and growing market for Astra and the Regreen Technology,” stated Douglas D. Hampton, president and CEO of Astra Energy California, Inc. “We are fortunate to be dealing with entities and municipalities that are dedicated to a real positive impact on the environment and the betterment of the health and welfare of its people.”
