International Technology Scan

Projects Description

Environmental Business Consultants (EBC) was contracted to identify countries most likely to be sources of innovative or emerging technologies that could be applied to the Ontario Blue Box Program.  Contact was then made with the appropriate government embassies and agencies within those countries to solicit assistance in identifying companies with expertise in sorting, densifying, transporting, cleaning recyclables and contaminated plastics.  A total of thirteen European and Asian countries were contacted with submissions received back from the majority. Several companies with new technologies of potential interest were identified and require additional follow-up.
