Convertus Group (Convertus), an organic waste solutions provider and Énergère, an energy services company (ESCo) active in Quebec for more than 25 years, plan to design, build, finance and operate a cutting-edge organic waste processing facility in Saint-Étienne-des-Grès, Quebec under a 20-year operating contract.
The organic waste processing facility is scheduled to receive its first waste in 2026 and will address the increasing environmental challenges associated with organic waste disposal in Mauricie Region.
By employing innovative technologies and sustainable practices, Convertus said it will play a crucial role in promoting a circular economy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions for Mauricie Region’s 37 municipalities.
By combining Convertus’ expertise in organic waste facility design and operations with Énergère ‘s extensive knowledge in design and build projects and energy retrofits, the partnership will ensure successful delivery and ongoing operations of this facility.
The facility will employ advanced anaerobic digestion and in-vessel composting technology to efficiently convert up to 35,000 tonnes of organic waste annually into renewable energy and nutrient-rich fertiliser and compost.
Through this process, biogas will be produced, which can be used as a source of renewable energy to power the local community.
“We are excited to contribute to the sustainability goals of Mauricie Region’s communities by providing an innovative organic waste management solution,” said Michael Leopold, CEO of Convertus Group. “Our full-service approach to designing, constructing and operating new organic waste processing facilities across North America ensures maximum resource recovery while minimising environmental impact.”.
“Each step in reducing greenhouse gases is a victory for our planet. It is with great pride that we are committed, in symbiosis with our partners, to continuing this mission and wish to become, through projects such as St-Étienne des Grès biomethanisation plant, an inspiration for future initiatives” says Mario Geoffrey, Director of Biomethanisation at Énergère.
