    A growing number of companies around the world are repurposing what we used to call “waste” into new and higher-value products. An exciting example of this is in the area of organics, where companies are taking post-consumer food materials and turning them into products as diverse as biofuels, renewable natural gas, and plastics – in addition to more traditional compost. As growing populations and industries produce more organic by-products each year, how are companies taking advantage of this opportunity to deliver environmental and economic benefits? 

    This event will bring together parties that collect and sort organics and those that process them to extract value to discuss their innovative approaches and the challenges they face in a real-life example of a circular economy value chain. 

    • DATE:  Wednesday, September 22, 2021
    • TIME:  1:00 to 2:30 PM EST
    • LOCATION:  Held via zoom
      1. Introductions
      2. Maximizing Organic Value: Two leading companies (Stormfisher and Convertus) in repurposing organics offer virtual tours of their facilities and how they derive value from organics feedstock.
      3. Collections and Sorting - Challenges and Innovations: Leading companies in collecting and sorting organic materials and a leading municipality will share their perspective, challenges and innovations they are developing.
      4. Panel Discussion: The representatives discuss supply chains, collaboration challenges and best practices, and what they need from a progressive regulatory environment.
      5. Government Response: Regulator and/or municipalities are invited to respond to the discussion. 
      6. Q&A Period

      Ontario is home to Canada’s largest group of environment and cleantech companies. These firms create environmental solutions that customers across Ontario and around the world buy – but their ability to succeed and grow requires a smart regulatory process and timely approvals. Ontario companies are ready to discuss the barriers to growth for their businesses and how we can overcome them, realizing the opportunity in Ontario, to create jobs, start and grow world-beating companies, and create environmental solutions that Ontario and the world needs.
