Guelph Organic Waste Processing Facility - Guelph-OWPF-Intro

Story

Maple Reinders was selected to undertake the replacement of a defunct composting facility for the City of Guelph located at the Waste Resource Innovation Centre. The design of the new facility called for the re-use of existing foundations and remaining sound structural components. The in-tunnel aerated static pile process utilized a patented process technology from Christiaens Group, one of Maple Reinders’ partners on the project, with four Phase 1 composting tunnels and three Phase 2 tunnels.

Due to public concerns about odour, Maple Reinders proposed a stringent odour control system
which included air curtains installed around rapid-roll up truck bay doors in the tipping area to prevent fugitive emissions. The City’s requirement of 1 Odour Unit (OU) at the site perimeter led the team to incorporate a Biorem® biofilter with an exhaust stack to provide maximum odour control.

The facility also includes an indoor maturation area and administrative offices. The facility is
operated by Maple Reinders’ subsidiary AIM Environmental Group.
