Use these resources to learn more about the different processes for your classroom.

We are committed to increasing the awareness of waste management and sustainable living through education, early adoption and applied research. In addition to a visit to our on-site Education Centre, we encourage exploration of the wide range of available materials that map to responsible waste management and waste reduction and the science behind composting, anaerobic digestion and the creation of biofuel.
