The high arctic community of Old Crow is located in the stunning Yukon wilderness of Canada’s North. Home to the Vuntut Gwitchin people the community demonstrates ongoing stewardship of their land by embracing the famous Porcupine Caribou migration and also deploying a 1.5 tonne per batch WTEC sBOS waste gasifier. The plant was commissioned in 2012 and has been cleanly destroying waste since with up to three batches per day. This flexibility attracted the World Bank for onsite deployments around the world.
“The World Bank team recently visited Old Crow and reminded us that two very successful years of operation have passed, so we are proud to do our part for Old Crow” commented WTEC COO, Alistair Haughton adding “the simple, proven and fully compliant sBOS system ticks all the boxes for deployment in this highly sensitive environment”.
WTEC’s latest iteration on the sBOS platform is a skid-mounted version for ship, rail or truck transport and ease of installation anywhere – ideal for industry, health care and other campus-style locations, especially with optional energy recovery. Ask us for more details
