We talked to Marc Hazout of SusGlobal Energy about sustainable global management of the organic wastes and here is what he said about it. First of all, how are you and your family doing in these COVID-19 times? Marc Hazout: We are doing fine and are grateful that we are involved in an essential business which has seen no interruption. Tell us about you, your career, how you founded SusGlobal Energy.
Marc Hazout: My background is in the Capital Markets, and I run a private equity fund founded in 1998. We mostly invest in proprietary technology, and we were identifying circular economy models and decided to start a sustainable organic waste managing and processing company that produces regenerative products from organic waste such as fertilizers both dry compost or liquid fertilizer.
Every year, 400 million tons of heavy metal, toxic sludge and industrial waste are dumped into our waterways. At least 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans. Some 1.3 billion tons of food — about one-third of all that is produced — is lost or wasted, while hundreds of millions of people go hungry. Our oceans are being overfished, our lands degraded and biodiversity rapidly eroded. Meanwhile, devastating natural disasters — flash floods in Europe and China, forest fires in the United States and locust infestations in Africa and the Middle East — are becoming more frequent. The unsustainability of our linear “take-make-waste” pattern of global production and consumption has never been more obvious. In fact, if we do not abandon it by 2050, we will need the equivalent of almost three Earths to provide enough natural resources to sustain current lifestyles, and annual waste generation will increase by 70%. But there is a better way: We can embrace the circular economy.
