Orgaworld Builds for the FuturePosted on March 23, 2016
While many cities across North America struggle with waste management, Surrey B.C. is taking action. A recent contract with Orgaworld Canada has enabled a new Biofuels Processing Facility to be built. With a target completion of 2017, this state of the art facility will contribute to significantly reducing the City’s Corporate carbon footprint. The biogas produced will be used to fuel the city’s fleet of waste trucks…making it the first fully closed loop in North America.
“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
Orgaworld Canada is an innovative organic waste treatment company with a commitment to being environmentally sound and economically viable. The new Biofuels Processing Facility will offer a high-tech odour management solution where the powerful ventilation system will draw in fresh air, process the foul smelling internal air through ammonia scrubbers and wood chip biofilters before being pushed up a 70 metre stack to the outside and released in a clean state.
Over 100,000 homes in Surrey will contribute kitchen and yard waste that is converted and given a new role as either compressed natural gas or high quality compost.
The compressed natural gas will provide fuel for 20 waste trucks, making this a long term sustainable process. The high end compost product will be used in agricultural and landscaping applications.
Neighbours will be invited guests to visit the Biofuel Processing Facility where there will be Visitors and Public Education facilities and a roof garden and visitor gallery on the third floor.
This project was nominated for the National Award for Innovation and Excellence in Public-Private Partnership in the category of project financing of the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships.
Orgaworld Canada is proud to be partnering with the City of Surrey B.C. and working together to enhance and protect the environment as we build for the future.
