Canadian Resource Recovery Council – Waste to Energy and Resource Recovery

Canadian Resource Recovery Council - Waste to Energy and Resource Recovery

(Theme 2 – Energy, Theme 7 – Waste)

Organization: Canadian Resource Recovery Council (CRRC)

Timeline for Completion: Started 2014 Ongoing

Objective:

Mission
The Canadian Resource Recovery Council (CRRC) represents industry, associations, and other stakeholders committed to sustainable environmental policies. We stand for the promotion, adoption, and implementation of resource recovery processes, including energy-from-waste (EFW) and select conversion technologies, for the management of residual materials within the context of an integrated solid waste management system.

Recognizing that resource recovery solutions are compatible with proactive recycling and other diversion efforts, the Council seeks to promote the most sustainable means of treating pre-disposal waste. In short, the 3Rs come first, followed by the safe and sustainable extraction of the energy inherent in residual waste.

The CRRC will assume a unique leadership position by pursuing innovative and powerful outreach and education initiatives that reach critical decision-makers and influencers in academia, government, and industry.

The Council seeks to promote the most sustainable means of treating pre-disposal waste.

Council Principles
The CRRC represents a diverse array of organizations with an interest in resource recovery, but the members all share a commitment to a few simple principles.

Social Sustainability
Resource recovery solutions should operate within the context of local circumstances and goals, serving as one pillar within a robust and integrated waste management and energy system that preserves community sustainability, thus ensuring local support for the overall system.

Environmental Sustainability
Resource recovery applications must seek to reduce the overall environmental burden by complementing, not competing with, recycling and diversion programs, and otherwise applying the latest technology to minimize the generation of waste management emissions. Members of the CRRC believe that modern, state-of-the-art resource recovery processes are safely managed, beyond all environmental standards.

Economic Sustainability
Resource recovery technologies should be implemented with an appropriate mix of management options, finding a balance between costs and benefits most advantageous and acceptable to host communities. Members of the CRRC believe that resource recovery serves as a complimentary technology in an integrated waste system, when properly sited with electricity, heat, and steam customers, resource recovery in the form of EFW can be economically viable and competitive with any other form of solid waste management.
