Envest Corp expands Ontario bioenergy facility
Seacliff is the first privately-owned, commercial-scale anaerobic digester in Canada. Envest is a pioneer of the Canadian biogas industry as an early private commercial processor of industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) and source-separated organics (SSO) waste streams. Envest has experience with processing SSO for various municipalities throughout Southern Ontario.
The expansion of Seacliff Energy Corp’s bioenergy facility will enhance the throughput and processing efficiency of the facility, which has a permitted capacity of up to 110,000 tonnes per year of SSO, ICI and liquid waste streams.
“Envest continues to invest in its growth by expanding its bioenergy and recycling infrastructure,” said Jason Moretto, Envest’s president and CEO.
“With over a decade of experience in generating renewable energy through organics recycling, our facility has been a leading reference of innovation, effectively serving a market of over 12 million people in Southern Ontario.
“Envest’s continued bioenergy success is a testament to a dedicated leadership and operating team of uniquely qualified people.”
Roger Tiessen, Envest’s general manager, commented: “Biogas produced through our organics recycling process is used to generate green electricity for export to the Ontario utility grid, and our fertiliser by-product is applied at local organic farming operations.
“We are also integrated with an adjacent 300,000 square-foot commercial organic greenhouse, to whom we provide renewable heat and wastewater treatment solutions, creating a completely sustainable closed loop of renewable resources with an overall negative carbon impact to the environment.”
