WASTE

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

LANDFILLS

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

Toxins and pollutants from landfills can pose a health hazard.

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

G5 BLOK

Our solution to the landfill waste problem is the G5 BLOK®. It is a multi-form, multi-use product, that is made from 100% waste.

The G5 BLOK is a PCC (Post Consumer Composite) material and comes in 2 basic forms. One type is a construction-grade composite block used as building material and the other is used for heat-generating fuel.

Next

CONSTRUCTION

A construction-grade PCC (Post-Consumer Composite) made from reclaimed waste.

  • 30% Lighter than cement
  • R-Value of 17.1 (could be increased)
  • Mold, rot, termite resistant
  • Ballistic resistant
  • Fire resistant
  • Superior STC Rating (sound dampening)

Next

ENERGY

Renewable energy for heat and electricity generation.

  • Burns up to 15 hours
  • 11,500 BTU per lbs.
  • Clean Burning
  • Available in 11, 22, 50 lbs
  • Benefits for Canada’s cold climate, especially up north.

The G5 BLOK could
REPLACE COAL
in some power plants.10

Thermal coal produces
24 million BTU/tonne.
The G5 BLOK generates
24 million BTU/tonne.11

20% of heat production and 5% of electricity in Denmark is generated from waste incineration.12

TRANSPORTATION

A replacement for creosote railroad ties.

  • Currently under devlopment
  • RE-BAR reinforced WPC railroad tie
  • More cost effective than traditional, chemically treated wood ties
  • Traditional railroad ties releases harmful creosote into the environment

Canada has
49,422 km
(30,709 Mi)
of railways.13

That’s approximately
100 million
railroad ties.14

Railroad ties are replaced every
40-70 years
depending on soil and usage.15

Waste Management

Waste Management

To fully understand the need for G5 technology, it is important to understand the recycling and waste management process. Everyone is familiar with the 3Rs of recycling, but the rate of waste produced far out paces recycling efforts.

REDUCE

REDUCE Consumption of disposable consumer products.

Our current rate of consumption and waste generation far out paces our ability to recycle. 160,000 plastic bags are thrown out every second globally.

RE-USE

RE-USE materials wherever possible.

The reuse 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 1960s have disappeared.

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.

Too much material ends up in landfills.

Next

G5 Process

G5 Process

Our philosophy expands on the old 3Rs with RECLAIM, RENEW, RE-GENERATE.
ReGen Composites utilizes materials which are difficult to recycle.

RECLAIM

No. 1-5, 7 plastics are used.

Wood from construction, demolition, agriculture and municipal collection.

Other aggregate landfill material.

RENEW

Composition of materials formulated depending on the product being produced.

Granulation and shredding into an aggregate.

Mixed and machine blended.

Propietary binding agent.

Formed in a 3D heat press.

Packaging and distribution.

RE-GENERATE

G5 BLOK

G5 Heat BLOK

G5 Rail Tie

BENEFITS

Strong, readily available, inexpensive building
material for the construction industry.

A renewable energy source alternative.

Cheaper maintenance costs means safer rail transport.

BENEFITS OF G5

  1. Reduce methane gas and CO2 emissions (COP 21)
  2. Rid environment of creosote railroad ties
  3. Save Millions of trees
  4. Improve indigenous housing conditions
  5. Lead the global movement with groundbreaking technology

Pilot Projects

There are currently a few pilot projects in the proposal stages, with many opportunities to expand into other sectors and industries.

We are working with Corporations to divert waste materials that in the past were destined for the landfill sites, which now can be diverted to Regen Composites, offering companies a step in the right direction towards a healthier environment.

Other G5 BLOK Pilot Projects

  1. Northern Canada Fuel
  2. Indigenous communities, waste management, housing and employment opportunities
  3. Medical Cannabis Industry Waste Recovery
  4. Agriculture and Construction Material Recovery
SUPPORT

ReGen Composites acknowledges that in order to create wide-spread adoption of the G5 Technology requires the support of federal and municipal governments. We believe that the widespread adoption of the G5 BLOK will revolutionize the entire work-flow of waste management and will foster a new paradigm that, “our refuse is one of our greatest untapped resources.” The G5 process will need to be scaled to a national and even a global level to be truly impactful and create “green” communities.

Businesses which would profit from G5 Technology, will need access as new markets are explored. The construction, heating, rail transport and waste management industries could immediately take advantage of this process.
