Biofuel Waste Opportunity Case Study

This case study examines their experience working with diverse customers and developing unique approaches to handling different types of waste materials.

Client Background

One of the first customers who approached Innovative Waste Recycling required assistance with a unique waste material. The material in question was inert ash generated from a boiler system, which could not be processed using IWR’s partner anaerobic digester. Despite this challenge, Innovative Waste Recycling collaborated with a farmer to propose an alternative solution. The ash was successfully utilized as a soil amendment to help offset farmer input requirements.
