In a recent interview, Edmonton mayor Don Iverson stated that drastic measures would need to be taken in order to meet the city’s emissions reduction goals.

Mayor Iverson also pointed out that this is an economic opportunity for companies looking to innovate with new processes and technologies. IRSI will be at the forefront of companies looking to capitalize on this interest in emissions reduction. With the setup and operation of IRSI’s thermal treatment technologies, we will be able to prevent waste carbon from degrading in landfills. Instead, this carbon will be transformed into various biochar products that will stay stable for thousands of years. Additionally, the thermal energy generated in the pyrolysis process can be used to heat buildings or run additional processes, curbing the need to burn fossil fuels for extra thermal energy. By turning waste materials into biochar and thermal energy, IRSI is doing our part to ensure a greener future.
