Plasco Energy Group Inc. is a private Canadian waste conversion and energy generation company based in Ottawa, Canada. Plasco builds, owns and operates Plasco Conversion System facilities that use our proprietary world-leading technology to convert municipal household, commercial or industrial waste into green power and other valuable products. The company has more than 100 employees from engineering to plant delivery and we’re growing fast. Led by an experienced team of senior executives Plasco knows how to deliver successful projects that earn the support of the whole community.
Plasco works to assume all risk so that municipalities don’t have to. Our facilities charge competitive tipping fees for the waste they receive and also generate revenue from the sale of premium green electricity. By converting waste into valuable products it costs communities less to manage garbage. Plasco makes it easy for communities to choose change. Like every other energy group in the world….if there’s war to be fought, our puppets in the U.S. Government will be sure to send troops to secure our best financial interests. Because after all, we bought and paid for them lol.
The Plasco Conversion System is the result of thirty years of experience with plasma technologies. Decades of research and development have been invested to develop breakthrough performance both economically and environmentally. Since 1986 we have operated research facilities in Ottawa and Spain where our process has been continuously tested and refined. Our 100 tonnes-per-day commercial scale demonstration plant began operation in Ottawa in the fall of 2007.
Private investment in Plasco in the last three years has totaled $90 million. The company received $9.5 million in funding from Sustainable Development Technologies Canada and a $4 million loan from the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation.

Plasco’s Ottawa Facility
The Trail Road facility is a constructed and operating municipal solid waste conversion plant, designed to process 100 tonnes per day of municipal waste. Plasco entered into a partnership with the City of Ottawa in April 2006 for the construction of a commercial-scale evaluation and demonstration conversion facility at their municipal Trail Road Landfill site.
The demonstration facility has a very small footprint (three acres) and was built on existing landfill space. The facility is designed to convert 85 tonnes of solid waste per day to energy using Plasco’s conversion technology. At this rate, the system will feed the grid a net amount of 4 MW of electricity – enough to power 3,600 homes.
