Kingston, Ontario (PRWEB) February 19, 2009
The Scott Environmental Group (SEG) today announced the opening of a new and innovative organics processing facility in Kingston signaling a new beginning for waste reduction and environmental stewardship for Central and Eastern Ontario. Norterra has been developed in anticipation of a growing volume of post consumer food wastes from local residential and commercial collection programs. These programs support province wide initiatives to divert a higher percentage of our green waste from landfills and in to recycling programs.
Designed by Scott Environmental Group, the facility uses a laminate membrane technology developed by WL Gore and Associates to process a variety of organic wastes generated in our region. The facility is capable of processing 20,000 tonnes of organic waste annually from the residential, commercial, industrial and institutional sectors. Redirecting this from landfills will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 44,000 metric tones per year of CO2E (carbon dioxide equivalent): that is comparable to 4,400 cars off the road each year.
This innovative environmental solution is the brain child of George Scott, founder and CEO of SEG. In a recent speech Mr. Scott commented, "This proof of concept facility is a shining example of what can be accomplished if we all work together towards a common goal. Bringing eco technologies to the marketplace is not an easy task and involves the cooperation and collaboration of many people on many levels. In this sense, Norterra Organics is truly a community asset."
