Plasco builds Ottawa plant

Plasco Energy Group, Inc., Ottawa, Ontario, has signed a contract with the city of Ottawa and said that it will build a 150,000 ton per year facility to convert the city’s municipal solid waste (MSW) to energy.

Plasco will design the facility around its Plasco Conversion technology. The city of Ottawa will supply 109,500 tons of MSW per year to the facility and has the right of first refusal to supply the balance of the plant’s capacity.

The contract has a base period of 20 years with four 5-year extensions at the option of the city, which will pay an escalating tipping fee starting at $83.25 per ton.
