magine fueling your truck with garbage. A Nova Scotia-based company is turning garbage into fuel products, and representatives of it shared their vision with United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) council on June 26.

UCPR Chief Administrative Officer Stéphane Parisien and Chief of Staff Justin Bromberg discovered Sustane Technologies at the recent Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) convention in Quebec City and decided to invite its representatives to make a presentation to council.

Sustane Vice President of Sales and Government Relations Kevin Cameron said many other technologies to reprocess waste are unaffordable and need large government subsidies to operate.
