Waste is a Growing Global Problem

Canada ranked in 15th place among the top 17 developed nations for waste generation.2

Canada produces over
31 Million tonnes
of municipal solid waste annually.2

An average of
1.8 kg (4 lbs)
of waste per day per person.3

$1.5 billion/yr
Costs to federal, provincial and municipal
governments for waste disposal.4

Next

Many existing landfills in Canada are nearing capacity.

Only about
30%
of our waste is recycled.5

67% of our waste ends up in one of
2400
active landfills sites6

There are
10,000 landfills
across Canada including closed sites.7

Next

Landfills are toxic environments that pose environmental and health risks.

Landfills over time, release toxins into the soil,
can enter the water table and
can contaminate surrounding areas.

Gases from decaying organic matter
in landfills account for
38%
of Canada’s total methane emissions.8

Landfills are not just an urban issue. Many rural
municipalities lack the proper resources to
build modern, “sanitary landfills.”9

How is Waste Currently Managed?

Everyone is familiar with the 3Rs of recycling: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

REDUCE

We can all do our part to REDUCE our consumption of disposable consumer products.

Our current rate of consumption far outpaces our ability to reduce. 160,000 plastic bags are thrown out every second globally.

RE-USE

We can call do our part to RE-USE products whenever possible.

The re-use of glass bottles on a commercial scale in Canada is only widely adopted in the beer industry. The reuse of milk bottles, common up until the 1970s, has disappeared.


But we still discard a lot of waste.



Some of it is RECYCLED, but much is not.

RECYCLING

WASTE

Paper, glass, metals such as aluminum, No. 1 and 2 plastics are commonly recycled.

No. 3-7 plastics are difficult to recycle and often end up in landfills.

In the end, far too much material ends up in landfills or incinerators.

What's our solution?

At ReGen Composites, we have developed an innovative new technology that allows us
to accept many types of difficult to recycle materials and turn them into new products.
In this way, we have expanded the traditional 3Rs to include three more:

RECLAIM, RENEW, REGENERATE.

RECLAIM

We see waste as a valuable renewable resource that we RECLAIM.


All plastics are used, from #1 to #7.

We source wood and fibre from construction, demolition, agriculture and municipal collection.

We can take other aggregate landfill material.

RENEW

Our processing facilty RENEWS this waste into a useful new feedstock.

Types and proportions of renewed material are formulated depending on the product being produced.

Material is shredded, grinded and/or granulated into an aggregate.

Aggregates are carefully measured, mixed and machine blended.

REGENERATE

Our patented technology REGENERATES this aggregate into
a new composite material that is strong, durable and environmentally sustainable.

What can we make?


Our first product is a renewable construction block:


  1. 30% lighter than concrete
  2. High compressive strength and impact resisance
  3. Can accept nails, screws, and other hardware
  4. Superiour thermal (R-17) and acoustic insulation properties
  5. Mold, rot, termite resistant
  6. Fire resistant

What are the benefits of ReGen's Technology?



  1. Reduce amount of waste doing to landfills & reduce landfill methane emissions
  2. Reduce the number of trees that need to be cut down
  3. Create local jobs and economic activity
  4. Help address the issue of ocean plastics!
  5. Lead the global movement with groundbreaking technology

What are we working on now?
