Investors were impressed by Clean Vision Corp.’s (OTC Pink: CLNV) shareholder update, sending shares higher by more than 12% to $0.05 early Wednesday. The move adds to the more than 85% jump since the start of August and proves that investors are paying attention to the CLNV story despite its nano-cap size. And rightfully so.
In August alone, CLNV has filed for new patents, entered into LOI’s to expand its business into a fourth continent, and secured a joint-venture partnership intended to provide the funding necessary to accelerate growth in several countries. Combined, the value proposition has reached “compelling” status, putting its stock back into position to attack its 52-week high of $0.23. While that is roughly 360% higher than current prices, understand that CLNV is in its best place ever to capitalize and maximize current and future opportunities. Thus, CLNV is a value play for both short and long-term investment considerations.
Know this, too. Although trading at roughly $0.05, CLNV and its subsidiaries are already playing in the big leagues within the waste-to-energy sector. For shareholders, phrasing their interest as a waste-to-money may be a more attractive synonym. Both ways, CLNV is accelerating multiple opportunities by leveraging its best-in-class plastic-to-energy pyrolysis technology to monetize agreements in at least four continents. Deals expected to generate revenue streams in the coming months include at least one in Cape Cod, Mass., and several in Asia and Ecuador. Last month, CLNV highlighted the potential from one of its US-based opportunities.
In focus is CLNV’s mission to win a substantially lucrative contract to protect Cape Cod’s water-based economy. It’s a consideration that Cape Cod isn’t taking lightly, especially with massive revenue dollars from tourism, commercial and recreational fishing, and aquaculture at stake. In fact, the industry is so crucial to the state that its Chamber of Commerce created the Blue Economy Project to encourage sustainable, manageable, and responsible growth in the region. At the heart of its initiative, state and local, is figuring out how to dispose of or utilize more than 600,000 tons of plastic waste per year. Of that total, the Cape alone contributes more than 40,000 tons of waste plastic per year.
For CLNV, it opens a substantial revenue-generating market opportunity. And with the Cape under pressure to attack the problem sooner rather than later, from its US-based interests, CLNV could be targeting the right market at the right time.

Turning Waste Into Energy- And Dollars
Moreover, the rewards to both can be substantial. Beyond Cape Cod maintaining its pristine environment, CLNV expects that its wholly-owned Clean-Seas subsidiary can bank some serious cash. By its own estimates, 40,000 tons of plastic waste in the Cape alone could be converted to over 5 million gallons of ultra-low-sulfur diesel. In dollar terms, CLNV thinks the job can contribute roughly $10 million in annual revenues. The better news is that Cape Cod decision-makers are actively working on getting a deal done. That makes CLNV’s proposals timely.
Better still, ahead of that decision, CLNV is positioned to take advantage of Cape Cod’s willingness to incentivize companies to handle its tons of waste with a tipping fee of nearly $100 per ton to transport municipal solid waste, particularly waste plastic, elsewhere. Of course, that’s in addition to the already substantial base amounts charged. Still, the revenue-generating potential for CLNV goes far beyond waste management logistical solutions.
The significant rewards will come from their ability to capitalize on a global movement toward Eco-friendly and sustainable practices. Specifically, converting waste plastic into green energy. And, the better news there is that CLNV’s Clean-Seas subsidiary is positioned to answer to global demand by leveraging the strength of its pyrolysis recycling technologies. Hence, while business from Cape Cod may be in its US-based crosshairs, its scalable technology is expected to be a value proposition to a global crisis.
And at roughly $0.05 per share, CLNV stock may be providing an inexpensive way for investors to get exposure to billion-dollar global waste-to-energy market opportunities. Even better, with joint-venture agreements in place to fund the buildout of its targeted projects, current share prices, despite its recent gains, may already be substantially undervalued.
Inherent Value From Joint-Venture Agreements
That presumption is credible after factoring in CLNV’s announcement last month that its Clean-Seas subsidiary entered into a joint venture with Roselle Capital to develop and deploy its revolutionary pyrolysis technology in Asia. Opportunities there, especially with Roselle’s connections, are substantial.
Better yet, Roselle Capital can accelerate the mission through its efficiency and success in arranging strategic deals between Asian and Western companies. Their value extends to also providing CLNV assets a chance to compete with local companies. Already, the two are targeting a substantial project to expand Sabah Wellness Place, a self-sustaining medical facility intending to use green energy and value-added plastic waste conversion. Clean-Seas and CLNV, with Roselle’s local guidance, believe their pyrolysis recycling technology could become an essential inclusion to that project. Moreover, it positions the joint-venture to expand into other regions.
That’s happening already, with CLNV following Roselle’s request for Clean-Seas to develop proposals to implement its pyrolysis technology into additional Sabah Wellness Place clinics in Malaysia and Georgia. Hence, its initial project could be a prelude to much more to come from that partnership. Better yet, CLNV is wasting no time, already noting that Clean-Seas submitted proposals to the Malaysian and Georgia governments to lead to definitive services engagements.
And to those questioning how CLNV assets will fund these operations, the excellent news is that upon the Clean-Seas’ proposals being accepted, Roselle has committed to providing financing for the projects with a 50/50 profit share agreement. That puts substantial, non-dilutive operations in play.
In addition, the 3R Declaration of Asia Mayors in 2018 could extend enormous opportunities to the JV. In fact, with that proclamation committed to enforcing a complete ban of illegal disposal of plastics in Eco-sensitive or Eco-fragile areas in that region, there will be plenty of business to spread across an already tight competitive landscape. And with the massive reach of that declaration to include tourist areas close to oceans, rivers, lakes, wetlands, other water bodies, and mountains, positioning to target specific niche opportunities could provide competitive advantages.
Thus, with Roselle on its team to guide the international transactions, the opportunities available from the Asia markets can be substantial and near-term.
Still, there’s more to like about this waste-to-energy company.
Expansion Into Several Ecuador Markets
Its work in Asia and interest in developing its US business aren’t the only markets in CLNV’s development plan. Its Clean-Seas subsidiary is also expanding its presence in Ecuador to provide waste management services into Santa Elena, Naranjal, and Milagro. The excellent news about these planned projects is that each municipality has committed to long-term Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) feedstock agreements that support deploying Clean-Seas’ pyrolysis technology. In other words, these public-private joint venture partnerships offer both money and the long-term fuel to create sustainable long-term revenue streams. Like its other deals, these are win-win deals.
And for those that trade ahead of the news, expect a catalyst to come during the first part of 2022, which is the expected time for Clean-Seas to commission its pyrolysis waste plastic-to-energy processing plant. Included in the launch could come news of initial project estimates reaching upwards of $100 million in capital expenditures, generating about $13.5 million annually for CLNV subsidiaries. Notably, those revenues would result from only its finally commissioned Santa Elena facility, which expects to process roughly 200 tons of MSW per day. Others would follow in the queue.
Moreover, the projects aren’t all about money. From an environmental perspective, the plant’s output will consist of clean-burning diesel fuel, bio-char, and industrial oil, generating roughly 70,000 carbon credits annually. Further, it can be a significant provider of employment to the community. Hence, the CLNV proposition is attractive on multiple levels, both public and private.
Project Expansion To Generate Profit
Still, investors will focus on how CNLV can generate a profit beyond its environmental and humanitarian impact. After all, for those purchasing the stock, profit is a motive. The great news there is that CLNV doesn’t shy away from sharing its plan with the public. And as they did on Wednesday, CLNV has routinely provided visibility into how it plans to develop multiple market opportunities by leveraging the strengths of its subsidiary assets. As noted, they now have a presence in four continents and intend to keep on moving.
That can be accomplished by CLNV’s interest to capitalize on merger and acquisition opportunities, with a particular focus on finding accretive companies specializing in sustainable and environmentally friendly technology. Specifically, they utilize the “3 P’s” – People, Planet, Profit philosophy to evaluate potential acquisitions. More importantly, though, new assets must bring an inherent means to add value through consultancy services, entry into new vertical markets, and the fuel to accelerate the commercialization of its products and services.
Indeed, consolidation in the sector can be beneficial. Even better, it can expedite the pace at which small companies become big. And for a company like CLNV, which has assets, business, and financing, they may be able to attract best in breed peer companies to join its forces. Hence, acquisitions of dominant peer players that open new markets could come through a merger of equals, with less dilution and immediate impact.
Also, for companies that expect to keep pace with the global markets moving away from a carbon-based economy, building a roll-up strategy through accretive acquisition could be the quickest and most efficient way to create shareholder value. CLNV has made no secret of its intent to utilize that strategy.
Expect future assets to add to an already impressive portfolio.
Waste-To-Fuel Technology Through Clean-Seas, Inc.
As noted, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Clean-Seas, Inc., is in global expansion mode. Frankly, they are in hyper-growth mode as well. Established in 2019, its mission is to develop improved plastic recycling technologies that reduce waste that flows into the world’s oceans. Their specialization lay in converting waste plastics into clean-burning fuels.
And with estimates suggesting that 8.3 billion tons of plastic waste currently exist on our planet, and with only about 9% of that total recycled, its target market is nothing short of enormous. Moreover, expect business opportunities for CLNV to ramp higher as experts say that the 260 million tons of plastic waste generated in 2016 alone is a precursor of the nightmare ahead. By 2030, they estimate that as much as 460 million tons of plastic waste will be heading toward oceans, waterways, and landfills.
Worse, with landfills worldwide already near capacity, a means of managing the waste can become an insurmountable challenge. Hence, despite the effort to recycle being popular today, expect an exponential rise in efforts toward the end of this decade.
The great news, Clean-Seas, Inc. is positioned to help with innovative recycling technologies solutions that can manage millions of pounds of waste per year on a global operational basis. And with Clean-Seas having already established operations in four continents, its technical and geographic position to maximize its cutting-edge waste-to-energy recycling technologies that turns trash into dollars has never been better.
Optimism Into Opportunity
Indeed, CLNV is a developing story. That’s the good news for investors wanting a ground floor position in a company targeting opportunities in the multi-billion-dollar waste-to-energy sector. The even better news is that several catalysts may be near-term, including updates from a potential deal in Cape Cod, progress made in Asia and Ecuador, and from the massive market opportunities in play from a global comminity needing to address the waste crisis.
Add in its 100% ownership of Clean-Seas, Inc. and the value from its joint-venture with Roselle Capital, its total assets and opportunities put CLNV in its best position to create sustainable shareholder value. It also exposes a disconnect between its share price and intrinsic asset values. Hence, at current prices, despite its more than 100% increase since August, CLNV could be presenting its most compelling case for investment consideration in its history.
And perhaps best of all, with agreements in place to demonstrate its operational strength, the back half of this year and the first part of next could be a transformational period for CLNV. Better still, with its M&A interests likely to bring another asset or two under management, that transformation can come sooner than many expect.
Hence, times may continue to be good for CLNV and its shareholders well into the future.
