Yukon Waste to Energy Feasibility Study and Environmental Assessment

The study examined the feasibility for of a waste to energy system that would handle 25,000 tons per year of municipal solid waste and 7,000 tons per year of wood waste as fuel, generating an estimated 1.3 MW of energy. (Yukon)


Construction and Demolition Waste Processing

A study was conducted that evaluated options to process and convert construction and demolition waste into fuel for use by local cement kilns. Morrison Hershfield conducted the study that assessed processing methods and laid the groundwork for conceptual planning of a pilot facility that could be implemented. (Vancouver, BC)


Resource Recovery

Resource Recovery

Waste to Energy technology is a recognized way to reduce waste volume while generating energy to help offset costs. Waste-to-energy (WTE) can be thermal (combustion) and biological (anaerobic digestion). Morrison Hershfield provides a broad range of WTE solutions to both public and private sectors. Our team has completed over 30 WTE projects, including feasibility studies, technology evaluation and selection, detailed technical and economic analysis, facility siting, permitting, business planning, design, and construction oversight for a variety of feedstocks and sizes.
