We started our Poop-to-Power project on February 1, 2017, and in our first year 22 tonnes of dog waste got turned it into usable energy and fertilizer through an anaerobic digestion process.
These days, to fulfill our company’s ‘sustainability mission’, we are utilizing EfW* waste management facilities in south-central Ontario. Watch our totals grow as we divert hundreds of poop bags away from landfill and convert the content into electricity!
To all our customers who support and embrace our green approach to business, we thank you.
The future is NOW!

*EfW = Energy-from-Waste: EfW Incineration generally entails burning waste to boil water which powers steam generators that generate electric energy and heat to be used in homes, businesses, institutions, and industries. According to the New York Times, modern incineration plants are so clean that “many times more dioxin is now released from home fireplaces and backyard barbecues than from incineration. “ (source: Wikipedia).
