Plasco Trail Road Performance
Plasco’s commercial-scale demonstration facility in Ottawa, Ontario is the culmination of more than 25 years of focused research and development.
Since the facility first began processing post-recycled MSW from the City of Ottawa in January 2008, operations at Plasco Trail Road (PTR) have successfully demonstrated:
Electricity generated by GE Jenbacher engines sold to local utility
- Superior environmental performance
- Production of commercially acceptable vitrified slag
- On site water treatment
For more information on our facility, please visit our Plasco Trail Road website.
“On many fronts, we need to challenge the old assumptions and look for new innovative processes that are more sustainable and fully protective of the environment. Surely it is better to recover some value from waste that can’t be recycled, than to landfill it and get nothing."
