Liberation Capital

Liberation Capital makes project-level investments in the waste-to-value and renewable fuels sectors. Liberation finances facilities that reduce demand for natural resources, particularly fresh water and fossil fuels. The firm achieves this by creating high-value products from waste streams (e.g., used tires) rather than through the use of natural resources. Liberation also helps to prevent the dumping of various waste materials like contaminated water, plastic bottles, used car tires, and MSW (municipal solid waste: paper, food scraps, yard trimmings, etc.).
