Plasco Energy Group to construct 15MW waste-to-energy conversion plant in Ottawa

CTBR Staff Writer Published 18 December 2012

Canada-based Plasco Energy Group has entered into an agreement with the city of Ottawa for the construction of a 15MW waste-to-energy conversion plant in the region.

The 150,000t facility will be constructed as per the plasco conversion system (PCS) design and will include three proprietary integrated converting and refining system (ICARS) modules.

PCS breaks down the garbage using an ICARS system that gasifies the waste and refines the gas generated using the plasma technology.

As per the agreed terms the city of Ottawa will supply 109,500t of municipal solid waste to the plant to be employed as feedstock.

Electricity produced by the plant will be sold to the local grid.

Construction of the plant will begin in the second half of 2013 and the commercialization is expected to start in the first half of 2015.
