WHO WE ARE

Originator of the Group, Supply Engineering & Finance Corp. established in 1961, now SEFICO Inc., has since participated actively in the Municipal Business. Aqueducts Potable Water Plants, Waste Water Plants, Waste Water Collection Mains and Pumping Stations, Waste to Energy Plants, Waste Collection. We are Located in Florida. Our foreign offices and affiliates are located in: Venezuela, Argentina, Panama, Dominican Republic, Chile, and Brazil.

THE SEFICO WAY

SEFICO and it's associates bring a new version of thermal conversion to Latin America. SEFICO spearheads a group of companies with over 40 years of experience in the protection of the environment. We adopted various processes of gasification and advanced them to a new generation in coorperation with well known firms in Europe and the United States. The different technologies to apply would vary in accordance with the needs of the host communities. SEFICO for the first time offers to Municipalities the technology of thermal conversion.

OUR COMPETITION

Sooner or later we will have to pay for the elimination of waste, including their pollutants and effects on our health, the environment, and the depletion of the Ozone. Dumps and landfills will not disappear by themselves, they just turn more dangerous as Methane gas is released into the atmosphere and lecheate seeps to the water table, rivers, lakes, polluting our sources of potable water.

WASTE TO ENERGY

SEFICO converts Waste into Energy by generating power from solid waste and certain types of liquid waste.  (view slides)

TYPICAL PROJECT

  • An average plant will process approximately 2,000 tons daily, without prior recycling.
  • Based on gasification technologies at high temperatures.
  • Equipped with the latest in emission controls.
  • There will be no environmental pollution.
  • Will be self sufficient for its own power consumption.
  • Will generate approximately 60 MW per hour of electricity, most of which is to be sold to the local distribution network.
  • Will produce 100 tons per day of ashes, most of which can perfectly be used, it is not toxic as is the case of the old type incinerators.

DESALINATION

If water Is needed, our plants process millions of gallons of sea water by using Thermal Converters powered by waste.

CONSTRUCTION

The construction of one of these plants will take approximately two years, after the concession contract is signed and ratified. Except for certain mechanical equipment and know-how, all materials and services will be provided locally and most subcontracts will be given to local construction firms. What does this mean? Each plant will cost over $100,000,000 (ONE HOUNDRED MILLION US DOLLARS), with no out of pocket expense to the Municipality, but with the economic incentive that the construction of one of these plants will bring to the local economy.

WASTE WATER TREATMENT NEWS

The Aerobic Digestion Waste Water Plant in Costa de Este, Panama, was started in 1997 and is now undergoing its third expansion. This plant treats about 10 million gallons of raw sewage per day, with an effluent that's 98% clean.
