Advanced Plasma Power to Install Waste-to-Power Plant in Canada

Advanced Plasma Power Ltd., a U.K. waste-to-energy developer, received a 20 million-pound ($34 million) order to provide its technology to a project in Canada.

The facility is being built for Port Fuels & Materials Inc. at the port of Hamilton in Ontario and it will have capacity of 20 megawatts, Swindon-based APP said today in an e-mailed statement. It will use waste to generate power.

Ontario produces about 13 million metric tons of commercial and municipal waste a year, according to the statement. APP’s facility, which is still subject to regulatory approval, will process about 170,000 tons a year, delivering power to the Canadian electricity grid, it said.
