Responsible Energy Inc.

Responsible Energy Inc. is a Canadian Corporation that was founded in 2007 out of a belief that the long term thinking of managing waste must be fixed. More importantly there should be a better way to dispose of non-recyclables other than burning or burying. ​​During the early years, Responsible Energy focused on analyzing a significant number of waste destruction technologies from around the world. A scientific area that showed great environmental performance was gasification. On the surface, it seemed like gasification might even be able to compete with landfill and incineration disposal costs. In the end, Responsible Energy concluded that none of the solutions came close to being economical. The majority required highly sorted waste and/or a dedicated, capital intensive, energy enrichment stage to enable the production of a usable synthesis gas (syngas).

Responsible Energy has created a proven waste destruction solution that enables the clean conversion of non-hazardous and hazardous solid and liquid waste into valuable commodities such as Electricity, Hydrogen, or Renewable Natural Gas.

Responsible Energy's multi-patented Free Radical Gasification (FRG™) technology finally offers a triple bottom line (social/environmental/financial) solution to an industry that has no real long-term climate protection solutions available. Current options require significant up front capital, have high operating costs, or have been proven to damage our environment.

After this disappointing discovery, Responsible Energy began developing a sustainable solution that led to what is now known today as our multi-patented Free Radical Gasification (FRG™) system. The invention team at Responsible Energy knew it was on the right track immediately when the first prototype reactor successfully produced a high-energy syngas from both solids and liquids. The team was then able to verify scalability by building a small-scale demonstration system that improved FRG™’s results by being able to create a consistent high-energy syngas.
