Eco Waste Solutions, a Burlington, Ontario-based energy recovery technology company, has been selected for financial support from the National Research Council of Canada’s Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP).
NRC-IRAP, a Canadian assistance program for small and medium-sized enterprises, will help fund the company’s development of an Eco Waste Oxidizer. The project is focused on enhancing Eco Waste Solutions’ Continuous Processing Waste Handling System, which can be expanded to process up to 2,000 kg of waste per hour and potentially 4,000 kg per hour. Multiple trains can be linked to meet the waste disposal needs of a small city with a population of more than 100,000 people–a city the size of Thunder Bay.
“All communities want proven technologies but the established WTE players are focused strictly on large capacity facilities,” say Steve Meldrum, President & CEO of Eco Waste Solutions. “We know that there are hundreds of communities with smaller populations in North America who need a WTE solution and don’t want to have to import garbage to make it feasible. With our new products we can address this gap in the marketplace.”
