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

This case describes the waste management industry and a clean technology alternative for landfill diversion and renewable energy generation. The (A) case concentrates on the operational features of waste management and waste to energy, and the characteristics of the waste management business. The aim of the (A) case would be to have students perform operational evaluation on the organic waste to energy process to assess whether a probable new plant is economically feasible and appealing.

The (B) case focuses on the sourcing dilemma: 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 business can either build a preprocessing facility to sort incoming waste to filter out contaminants, or work with suppliers to source separate their waste stream.
