Harvest: Organic Waste Recycling with Energy Recovery (A) Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

This case depicts the waste management sector and a clean technology substitute for landfill diversion and renewable energy production. The (A) case target the operational characteristics of waste management and waste to energy, along with the characteristics of the waste management sector. The aim of the (A) case is to have students perform functional analysis on the organic waste-to-energy procedure to assess whether a potential new plant is economically viable and appealing.

The (B) case focuses on the sourcing predicament: pre-processing vs. source separation. To ensure that its waste input fuel is of sufficiently high quality (i.e., low level of inorganic contaminants), the firm can either assemble a pre-processing facility to sort incoming waste to filter out contaminants, or work with suppliers to source separate their waste stream.
