SUEZ operates and maintains the Anaerobic Digestion Facility (ADF) and the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) on behalf of the City of Edmonton. SUEZ also maintains and operates the Swan Hills Treatment Centre (SHTC) on behalf of the Province of Alberta.
The Anaerobic Digestion Facility (ADF) processes up to 40,000 tonnes of organic waste per year and diverts it from landfill. It also created renewable energy in the form of electricity and heat, reducing greenhouse emissions. This facility contributes to Edmonton’s goal of diverting 90% of waste from landfill.
The Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) is an almost 64,000 square foot recycling plant. This facility, known as a “clean MRF”, only accepts recyclable commingled materials that have already been separated at the source from municipal solid waste. Material is sorted, baled, shredded, crushed, and compacted for shipment to market. The percentage of unrecoverable recyclable material, supported by an effective public outreach and education program, should not exceed 10% by weight of the total delivered stream.
The Swan Hills Treatment Centre (SHTC) is Canada’s only fully integrated hazardous waste treatment facility and one of a handful in the world. This centre is able to treat all types of hazarous waste generated in North America, excluding explosive and radioactive items. Since it’s opening in 1987, this facility has treated over 300,000 tonnes of hazardous waste including POPs, PCBs, Dioxin/Furan and ODS wastes.
SUEZ is currently in the process of design, build, operate and maintain of 2 new facilities for the City of Montréal. The first facility is a 50,000 tonne per year compost facility, expected to come on line late 2021. The second is a 60,000 tonne per year anaerobic digestion facility, expected to come on line sometime in 2022.
