Integrated Waste Resource Recovery & Management System (IWR2M™)

Hydra Renewable Resources, Inc. (Hydra) of Canada introduces their proprietary Integrated Waste Resource Recovery & Management System.

Hydra presents a powerful alternative to the perpetual cost sink of traditional, municipally funded, solid garbage (MSW) and liquid sewage waste management programs. Hydra offers a unique Design, Finance, Build, Own, Operate and, on a 30 year term, Transfer (DFBOOT) approach.
Hydra’s Integrated Resource & Recovery Management System (IWR2M™) is financed in the private sector and provides significant net financial benefit to the community at no cost to the public purse. It allows Hydra to harvest the inherent resources in the waste streams and realize very considerable financial benefit over the 30-year term.

Hydra’s IWR2M™ System is designed to mitigate both operational and investment risk by employing only field proven state-of-the-art technologies. Hydra’s integrated system includes Waste-to-Energy (W2e), Water Recovery, District Energy and Greenhouses. It is positioned at the nexus of the world’s energy, water and food markets.

While unique in its configuration, the IWR2M™ System has been designed to operate such that each component feeds naturally to the next without providing adverse or unknown effect. The design has been extensively reviewed by Hydra’s partners Mace Group and Forman Roberts as well as engineers from Thames Water and Severn Trent in the UK.

In the system’s 1st Stage (W2e) the MSW is converted into three products:

  1. Ultra low sulphur diesel fuel (ASTM D975 S2 D15 drop-in fuel);

  2. Electricity; and

  3. Char – a valuable carbon for agricultural use and as a fuel (cement kilns).

The MSW feedstock for the W2e stage is consistent around the world with virtually limitless supply growing at an ever expanding rate. Neither Industrial nor Construction & Demolition (C&D) waste is processed but Red Bag waste can be accommodated with microwave treatment.

In the 2nd Stage municipal sewage water is converted to clean, fully recyclable/saleable water while the bio-solid (sludge) generated from the waste water treatment process is dried and added to the MSW and converted to energy. The clean water is available for resale once the latent energy in the discharge stream is harvested for use in a closed loop District Energy System in the 3rd Stage.

In temperate and equatorial zones, a 4th Stage of Green Houses is added to the IWR2M™ System as a final component, producing very considerable revenues from crops as well as the purest potable water re-condensed from transpirated water vapour.

None of the abovementioned processes leave ANY residual that must be landfilled or disposed of elsewhere.

In THIRD WORLD countries superior green and sustainable housing (LEED Standard) is supplied for all employees.

Typical cash return over the 30-year agreement term to the Municipal partner through land lease and investment in sewerage infrastructure etc. will be about US$ 500 – $750 million thus future CAPEX and OPEX for waste management will be eliminated over the 30-year term.

When transferred to the Partner the facility will have about 10-years of functional life remaining. If so desired the Partner could contract with Hydra to continue operations management. Sufficient revenue could be accumulated by the Partner to fund complete replacement without further access to the public purse.

Hydra has secured commitments from municipalities around the globe, including Asia, the Middle East, USA and the Caribbean, to begin implementation of the IWR2M™ system.

Hydra’s financial returns will be very substantial.


  • Hydra’s solution
    Eliminates the need for ratepayer financing.
    Provides a new municipal general fund revenue stream from the rent collected from a triple net lease of the land upon which the facility is located (5% of the gross revenue stream , subject to operating capacity exceeding $400 Million over the 30-year term)
    Eliminates municipal capital and operating costs with respect to waste management;
    Provides a certainty of replacement for wastewater treatment & waste management facilities as well as the maintenance and improvement of the collection system; allowing the municipality to benefit from improved services and reduction of costs;
  • Create jobs
    Depending upon the size i.e. tonnes per day processed, a Hydra Waste & Energy Centre could employ up to 1250 persons with some 250 in the W2e plant and a further 1000 in the Green House operations.
  • Landfills
    No longer required
  • First World Cities
    A Hydra IWR2M™ System in a First World City with 100,000 population could sustain a Hydra plant processing about 110,000 M3 (30 MGD) per day of waste water and 250 tpd of MSW and outsource an additional 500 tpd from adjacent areas. The CAPEX required would be about US$700 million which includes 100 ha for Green Houses giving a Pre-Tax Gross Earnings of $50 million.
    Earnings would be increased to US$100 million if an additional 750 tpd of processed MSW were added to the configuration (brokered quantities are available anywhere in America, for instance) CAPEX would increase to some $878 million
  • Third World Cities
    A Hydra IWR2M™ System in a Third World City processing 1,500 tpd of MSW and 75,000 m3 (20MGD) will cost about US$800 million, giving
    Estimated Annual Revenue (conservative sale prices) of about $297 million less
    Expenses of about $179 million providing a projected
    Pre-Tax Gross Earnings of $119 million

Hydra takes full responsibility for
System Design, Financing, Procurement, Construction & Commissioning.

  • Initially, Hydra acts as the Engineering, Procurement & Commissioning (EPC) contractor for the development of each facility.
  • On completion, each facility is transferred to a special purpose corporate vehicle (SPV) structured as a local corporation. The SPV assumes turnkey possession of the completed facility and provides for all systems management including the maintenance and upgrade of the municipal collection/sewerage system.
  • Hydra retains a majority share in the SPV and is Managing Director over a 30-year PPE agreement with Hydra’s partner, Utility Partners LLC, providing the Facilities Management. The host municipality will share some of the effective earnings of the SPV.
  • Financing for each facility is secured from the private global financial markets. Project funding at levels ranging from US$ 100 million to US$ 900 million are available at single digit interest rates (presently 6.75%) over a 10-year fixed term.
  • Hydra’s financing model does require that a Financial Feasibility & Design Study be conducted. The Study can add six months and more to the project time frame. Financing of the study represents an equity investment opportunity for third parties.
  • Mace Group being Hydra’s Project & Construction Management partner will lead the Study which will include:logo-mace

Review of existing site parameters & records
Establish scope of works required to transfer to new site
Engage with Consultants and define their respective scope of works
Land – due diligence, conceptual site plan, develop option to purchase agreement
Survey new site – Groundwork / Geo-technical, Topology, Traffic
Environmental (noise, air, etc.), Existing Utilities, Ground Contamination, etc.
Fuel – specification, volume, term of Agreement
Facility Design
Engagement with local Planning and Permitting Authorities Engagement with Utility Companies for new Services & Grid Connection
Purchase Contracts for power, fuel, heat
Operation and maintenance selection
Cost management review & planning
Procurement and preliminary tendering documents
Town Planning and governmental department interface
Funding, including Cost Modelling, Options, Establish funders/financial market criteria for lending and independent due diligence.

The result of the Financial Feasibility & Design Study is a specific business case, facility design and conditional offer of finance (conditional upon the municipality signing a PPE agreement with Hydra). Once approved by the municipality the project could take up to 18 months to be operational.
