Vadxx Energy Closes on Financing for New Waste-to-Energy Facility

CLEVELAND, January 13, 2014-- Vadxx Energy ( has closed on financing for its first commercial-scale, plastic waste-to-energy facility. This first unit will be implemented in Akron, Ohio and is scheduled to come on-line in early 2015. The regional operation will recycle almost 60 tons per day of waste plastics, diverting them from landfill disposal.

Liberation Capital, a global private equity firm, entered into an agreement with Vadxx to fund the first unit, and additional commercial units. Rockwell Automation is the procurement and construction contractor and will manufacture and commission the facility.

"Vadxx is focused on implementing our first commercial unit in Akron successfully, as an important first step toward global expansion,” said Jim Garrett, Vadxx CEO. “Liberation Capital, Rockwell Automation, feedstock suppliers, and other partners will play key roles in our growth and success.”

Vadxx has operated a 1/50th scale pilot facility for several years, working to optimize its process, test future plastic feedstocks, and educate investors. The company has received significant support from Northeast Ohio economic development entities and the state of Ohio.
