Organics Recycling

With extensive experience in energy, technology, transportation, and supply chain management, Avolusis brings a wealth of experience directly relevant to green and renewable industries. In this project, we applied for and won a grant to fund our coordination of an economic analysis of alternative waste management techniques – including landfill, bulk commodity sales of recyclables, and local reuse through composting and shredding of refuse.
We guided local leaders in recycling, waste management professionals, and business students who analyzed and identified the most effective combination of source separation, transportation of recyclable and non-recyclable commodities, and re-manufacture and reclamation of reusable commodities for a community transfer station facility located in a resort community. This type of collaboration was somewhat new because it cut across the traditional divide between waste-hauling and recycling. And it was particularly effective in addressing the specific needs of rural western communities that face different economics for recycling than do metropolitan areas — such as a smaller local market for sorted recyclables and a relatively greater abundance of potential new landfill sites.

We created the moniker Recycling 2.0 to represent the brand position of this new collaboration. And we used it as part of a public relations campaign to support an organics recycling and re-use contractor and successfully aided renewal of a critical anchor client.

In a different project, Avolusis wrote a grant application for the installation of an educational solar panel installation at the Greater Yellowstone Geotourism Center, sponsored in part through the support of National Geographic. The grant would help the Greater Yellowstone Geotourism Center demonstrate sustainable energy practice to visitors from around the globe.

When we started these projects, green professionals couldn’t understand how we could help them. Yet Avolusis found a way to make the pieces fit and create opportunity where traditionalists saw none. We demonstrated that extensive experience in energy, technology, and commodity transportation management is directly relevant to the challenges facing green and renewable industries today.
