From scraps to biogas: Dutch innovation in BC
Making gas out of scraps is a great way of reducing your carbon footprint. Dutch company Waste Treatment Technologies (WTT) and the city of Surrey in British Columbia have partnered up to do just that: collecting household and garden waste to make and distribute biogas, using unique Dutch technology.
The Surrey facility is the first closed-loop waste management system in North America, and one of the biggest.

Modular recycling and reuse centers
Reducing illegal dumping and stimulating recycling are high on the agenda of communities worldwide. Modulo designs and installs recycling and reuse centers that allow residents to dispose of recyclable materials and waste safely and conveniently.
Dutch CEO Ward Janssens: 'The stations are constructed using modular concrete blocks instead of pour-in-place solutions or bins on the ground. The space underneath the stations can also be used. The stations can be expanded or adapted as regulations, management practices or population change'. Modulo has supplied and installed award winning projects in Quebec and Ontario Provinces.
