Billions of tonnes of waste are created each year by commercial and industrial activities. Generally, these materials end up buried in landfills where they decompose and release massive amounts of greenhouse gases (GHGs), particularly carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere.

Ainsworth Energy recognizes this waste as a significant, low-cost, renewable source of energy with the potential to produce a range of biofuels, electrical and thermal energy, as well as chemicals required for the production of finished goods.

Identifying and utilizing alternative source of energy will prevent the global depletion of non-renewable fossil fuels that are becoming increasingly expensive to extract and process.
