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.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
