Projects in latin america


Latin America and the Caribbean, home to some of the world’s most pristine and diverse ecosystems, depend heavily on natural resources to generate economic growth

Dominican Republic

Dam over AMINA river

  • The ‘Dam over Amina river’ initiative will provide drinking water to the country's capital Santo Domingo.
  • It will produce 65MW and will support the effort to expend agriculture and food production in the entire area.
  • In cooperation with LR Group.
  • The project is valued at $350M.

Waste to Energy facility

Collaboration between Y.A. Maof, Punta Cana Group, Asonahores (Hotel association) and APEC University to build a strategic plan to treat 700 tons of organic waste generated by the Punta Cana tourism sector.  This strategic plan will focus on reducing environmental damage in the area. It will also provide an economic pre-feasibility study of a waste to energy approach.

Rehabilitation of an existing waste site in the Punta Cana area in order to turn it into a regional sanitary landfill.

Two main goals:

  • Advanced treatment for the Hotels MSW.
  • Produce green energy.

Dominican Republic

Fish farm

  • Producing 1,000T sweat water fish for export and for the local market - yearly.
  • Yearly income of $2M
  • Set costs are valued at $10M

Dominican Republic

Establishment of a solar farm

Y.A. Maof is promoting with the Dominican Republic and initiative to establish a solar farm near the city of San Pedro de Macorís. The project that we propose involves a power generation of up to 140MW for 25 years.

This joint effort would constitute the largest renewable energy project in the country. The proposed project would be located on 100 hectares (1,000,000 m2) of land.

Punta Cana Eco Industrial Park

We have lunched our scientific field test during last September for our first Biogas facility of the Eco Park – EnergyAlgea Project.

Continued lab tests over the past year have yielded outstanding results: Algae material has proven to be over 200% more efficient in creating energy than our initial assumptions.

This advancement is thanks to a special proprietary pre-treatment process incorporated by the use of special machinery and enzymes. It is an outstanding achievement, and also world-first.

Dominican Republic

Sargassum outbreak crises

Y.A. Maof, as a leader of consortium, wishes to examine the feasibility of promoting biogas facilities in various locations across the affected areas. As a first step, Y.A. Maof plans to place a biogas plant (1.5MW) in Punta Cana, which is based on the digestion of sargassum and MSW.

Besides treating the sargassum issue, the biogas facility would also integrate with the waste value chain and assist the promotion of renewable energies.

Innovative solutions for revitalizing tourism in the Caribbean through turning Sargassum into a resource and upgrading the environmental profile of coastal hotels.
