June 27, 2014, Burlington, Ont. – Eco Waste Solutions (EWS), a manufacturer of
thermal waste conversion and energy recovery technologies, announced that it
has received financial support from the National Research Council of Canada's
Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP). NRC-IRAP is Canada's premier innovation
assistance program for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

 

In addition to advisory services and technological
expertise, the research funding received from NRC-IRAP will be applied to
advance the development of the Eco Waste Solutions Technology: the Eco Waste
Oxidizer. The development project will be centered on refining the Continuous
Processing Waste Handling System that EWS has developed. The Continuous Feed
(CF) design allows EWS to scale up the Eco Waste Oxidizer technology to address
new markets. The project under development will process up to 2000 kg of waste
per hour and can be scaled to 4000 kg per hour. 
Multiple trains can be linked to meet the waste disposal needs of a
small city with a population of more than 100,000 people – a city the size of
Thunder Bay.

This expanded capability is driving the company's movement
into the small-scale waste-to-energy (WTE) market.  Steve Meldrum, President & CEO of EWS,
says "All communities want proven technologies but the established WTE
players are focused strictly on large capacity facilities. We know that there
are hundreds of communities with smaller populations in North America who need
a WTE solution and don't want to have to import garbage to make it feasible. With
our new products we can address this gap in the marketplace."
