BURLINGTON, ONTARIO—February 3, 2023 – Anaergia Inc. announced its Chief Operating Officer, Yaniv Scherson, has been honoured with the Innovator Award from Waste360, the leading information and education provider for the waste industry. Scherson was selected from hundreds of professionals as part of Waste360’s “40 Under 40” competition.

The Innovator Award, announced on Tuesday of this week, recognizes innovators and forward thinkers who use technology to better the industry. Waste360 also noted Scherson assisted in completing Anaergia’s initial public offering and is continuing to rapidly grow the company around the world, with a focus on building and operating large-scale, anaerobic digestion facilities.

We’re proud of Yaniv and the outstanding work he’s done to lead Anaergia through a tremendous growth period,” said Andrew Benedek, Anaergia’s Chairman and CEO. “Like all of us at Anaergia, Yaniv is mission-driven.

This drive is behind all of his many laudable accomplishments.”
