            commercial and institutional (IC&I) waste by rail. Each year, the
            GTA produces seven million tonnes of such waste. Every FWTI train
            moves the equivalent of 300 truckloads of waste, which will
            significantly reduce CO(2) emissions, improve road safety while
            increasing fuel and haulage efficiencies for Ontario businesses.
            FWTI's innovative rail model achieves a more sustainable future
            for Canadians and businesses alike.
