GPEC Global

GPEC Global is an Independent Power Producer that transforms waste into a renewable source of energy.


Waste Management and Power Demands

A waste-to-energy solution must address both the waste management and the power demand sides of the equation by converting a high proportion of the energy content in garbage to electricity. It must accomplish this while minimizing any harmful emissions into the atmosphere

The World is Turning to Green Energy

A heightened level of environmental stewardship is spurring sustainable development initiatives around the globe.  One important area has been the addition of renewable sources of power such as wind turbines, low-head hydro, solar and biomass (e.g. wood chips and crop waste) to the generation mix.  However, there is another important source of green power-municipal solid waste.   No city in the world has a shortage of garbage, and many regions are running out of landfill space and need an effective long-term alternative to their waste management problems.   Waste-to-energy is the solution.  It reduces the requirement for landfills, and the ensuing methane emissions over time, and provides a source of electricity close to the population centres where the demand resides (a form of distributed generation).

However, in order to realize its full potential, a waste-to-energy (WTE) facility must be both efficient and clean.  Electricity prices are escalating and power supply shortages constrain growth in many parts of the world today.  A waste-to-energy solution must address both the waste management and the power demand sides of the equation by converting a high proportion of the energy content in garbage to electricity.  It must accomplish this while minimizing any harmful emissions into the atmosphere. 

GPEC Global is an Independent Power Producer that transforms waste into a renewable source of energy.  Cleanly.  Efficiently.  We build, own and operate WTE plants using proven technologies from leading equipment manufacturers around the world.
