Elementa and the Ontario Power Authority Finalize Energy-From-Waste Power Purchase Agreement

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON--(Marketwired - January 21, 2014) - Elementa Group Inc. has reached an agreement with the Ontario Power Authority to increase Ontario's energy supply through a new commercial-scale, energy-from-waste demonstration project in Sault Ste. Marie, announced today by David Orazietti, Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP).

Elementa Group Inc. (Elementa) will generate electricity at its signature municipal waste-fuelled plant to be built at Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. After a decade of development and planning, Elementa is preparing to introduce its proprietary, non-incineration-based commercial waste management solution and alternative energy technology to the market as it plans to redefine the waste-to-energy industry.

"Our government's landmark renewable energy strategy is leading the way in North America by supporting innovative alternative energy projects throughout the province that support high quality local jobs, reduce pressure on our electricity grid and help to clean the air we breathe," said David Orazietti, MPP for Sault Ste. Marie. "Elementa's new waste-to-energy project will further diversify our local economy and strengthens Sault Ste. Marie's position as a true green energy leader."

Elementa will operate the new plant designed for converting 50,000 tonnes of post-recycled municipal solid waste, providing further recycling capabilities to the local community and contributing 10 megawatts of capacity to Ontario's grid system, enough to supply upwards of 10,000 homes.

Elementa's technology uses a unique, patented and proprietary steam reformation chemistry that enables the generation of electricity while providing an alternative to landfilling residual waste streams. The Elementa plant is required to meet all Ontario Ministry of the Environment ("MOE") operational requirements. Elementa's technology is expected to surpass air, waste and water regulations prescribed by the MOE.

"We are proud to be locating our new plant at The City of Sault Ste. Marie and working with the City to bring our full-scale commercial plant into production," stated Jay Zwierschke, President, CEO and Founder of Elementa. "This project will complement and support the vision of Sault Ste. Marie as the 'Alternative Energy Capital of North America.'"

Elementa is preparing to complete all remaining project details and advance the project to construction phase. Project facts will be updated on a regular basis as Elementa is developing this milestone technology for the purposes of rapid deployment into the market.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
