Sustane Chester Inc.
Most of what people discard is composed of metals, plastics, and biomass materials that are bound together, preventing them from being economically diverted by even the best curbside-recycling program. Most recycling solutions can only handle one material at a time, thus causing the disposal of mixed materials into landfills.
Sustane has developed a new segregation technology that allows for the near-complete recycling of garbage; it thus has the potential to eliminate the need for landfills by 90%. Sustane will showcase their breakthrough technology in Chester, Nova Scotia by building a demonstration plant to process the region’s municipal waste and transform it into clean biomass fuel pellets (for industrial usage), synthetic diesel fuel and recyclables (metals and plastics). The material that will be recycled at the Chester demonstration plant currently all goes to a landfill and generates significant greenhouse gasses, all of which will be eliminated with this new process.
