Food and organic waste could provide biofuel source for Northern Ontario towns

Calgary-based Eco-Growth Environmental Inc. turns waste into a biofuel material by using a proprietary technology which introduces the pathogen-free biofuel into a boiler system. From there, hot water is produced that can be used for building heat.
