The project involves the construction of a new food and green waste high solids anaerobic digestion facility on the site of the existing Fraser Richmond Soil and Fibre Ltd composting facility in Richmond, BC.
The new facility comprises a 14,000 square foot mechanical pre-treatment hall followed by a two stage biogas process involving the use of ten percolators and two methane reactors. The solid output is then transferred to the composting facility where it will receive further preparation to produce compost. The scheme also includes construction of a 3000 square foot Green Energy Centre which provides a control room, viewing area and general office space.
This project was named by KPMG as one of the Top 100 Infrastructure Projects in the world.
