Creating Energy from Waste

Emerald Energy From Waste Inc. recovers thermal energy from solid non-hazardous waste from municipal (MSW) and industrial, commercial and institutional (IC&I) sources. The recovered thermal energy is converted to electricity and steam for use in our community. The facility produces up to 9 megawatts (MW) of electricity from the thermal treatment of waste. This is sufficient to power up to 6,000 homes.

Since 2008, the facility has been the only source of steam, a key energy component for manufacturing paper, for a nearby paper mill, that recycles up to 150,000 tonnes of used paper annually.
