Welcome to WTERT Canada

Identifying and advancing the best available waste-to-energy (WTE) technologies for the recovery of energy or fuels from municipal solid wastes and other industrial, agricultural, and forestry residues.

Waste-to-Energy (WtE), involves producing for heat and / or electricity by recovering the energy contained in the municipal solid wastes left after recycling and other industrial, agricultural, and forestry residues. These conversion technologies play an important role in providing energy and delivering sustainable waste management.

The WtERT CANADA website provides an overview of the available technologies that generate WtE and acts as a gateway to unbiased information and technical data.

The first options for sustainable waste management should be prevention, reuse and maximum recycling. There will, however, always be remaining ‘residual’ waste. Ensuring energy recovery from this residual waste, using highly engineered, controlled and regulated facilities, has a major role to play in a resource efficient society.

In CANADA, a coalition of organisations leaded by Concordia Clean Tech has been formed to promote the benefits of WtE technologies.

What Is Our Mission ?

WTERT aims to brings together engineers, scientists and managers from universities and industry in several countries by;

Join Us to Fight Climate Change

Canada need to consider developing Waste-to-Energy in order to successfully recycle, reprocess, treat and dispose of waste and to implement landfill reduction targets.
Increasingly, residual waste needs to be diverted from landfill because:

  • The cost of landfill is increasing and likely to be in excess of $$ per tonne in 2014, with landfill tax at $$
  • Scarcity of available land close to urban area
  • Landfilling of biodegradable waste produces methane (CH4) greenhouse gases.
