Our Company

Plasco Energy Group leverages strategic partnerships with developers to enable the global deployment of our world-leading waste conversion technology: the Plasco Conversion System.


Our Company

Plasco Energy Group Inc. is an innovative technology company based in Ottawa, Canada. Plasco’s conversion technology is a sustainable solution that helps communities achieve their landfill diversion and renewable energy goals. Plasco recovers the highest value from post-recycled waste and significantly reduces the negative impact waste has on the environment.

Plasco currently operates the world’s only commercial-scale conversion technology facility that converts waste into a synthetic gas that fuels GE Jenbacher engines to generate electricity.

The Plasco Conversion System is the result of over 30 years of experience with plasma technologies. Decades of research and development have been invested to develop breakthrough performance both economically and environmentally. Since 1986, we have operated research facilities in Ottawa and Spain where our process has been continuously tested and refined.

More than $390 million of equity capital has been committed to Plasco since 2005. In addition, public investment includes a $9.5 million grant from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC).


“The capital raised to date is a remarkable expression of confidence in the depth of the market, the competitive strength of the technology, and the abilities of Plasco management and staff.“
