OTTAWA, June 23 /CNW Telbec/ - China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group (CECEP) and Plasco Energy Group have announced that they will be signing an agreement to establish a Joint Venture corporation, CECEP-Plasco China Corp, tomorrow during China's state visit to Canada.
CECEP Plasco China will be based in China and jointly owned by the two companies. Plasco will provide its world leading Plasco Conversion System technology to be delivered in China only through this Joint Venture. CECEP agrees that CECEP and its subsidiaries will use the Plasco Conversion System for development in China of projects to recover energy from waste. "We can make a big difference in cutting global warming causing gasses from landfill in the world's fastest growing economy with one of the largest populations on earth through this partnership," said Plasco CEO Rod Bryden. "This technology, developed right here in Ottawa, can help communities all around the world to handle waste and contribute to our green energy future starting right now."
China currently landfills more than 160 million tonnes of MSW per year with the amount growing due to the urbanization and rapid economic development of the country.

Garbage will truly become a resource rather than a waste."
