Pandemic-Proof Projects? Spring Lane Looks to Sustainable Waste

By Mark Shenk

This impact investor is backing startups that promise to divert organic waste from landfills and turn it into clean energy and compost.

  • Spring Lane Capital’s Rob Day is betting on startups that build small plants that transform and on other sustainable infrastructure.
  • COVID-19 isn’t expected to affect the impact investor’s projects in the energy, food, water and waste sectors.
  • While sewage isn’t a sexy subject, developing sustainable methods to process it can both reduce the need for landfills and produce clean energy and other products.

Spring Lane Capital says it’s investing in niche companies impervious to the pandemic — those that turn organic waste into sustainable energy and products.
