Late last month, a biosolids project involving source separated organics (SSO) was completed in Calgary. Built by Chinook Resource Management Group, the project is the first composting facility delivered in the P3 model in Canada. Chinook is a special purpose company of which Maple Reinders in a partner. 

 

"This project provided a unique opportunity for Maple Reinders to leverage its extensive experience in Class A Biosolids and advanced SSO composting with its proficiency in the private financing of municipal infrastructure" said Reuben Scholtens, director of infrastructure development at Maple Reinders.

The facility will process 100,000 wet tonnes per year of SSO, leaf and yard material, as well as approximately 40,000 wet tonnes per year of biosolids. It is the first commercial building in Alberta to be registered under LEED Gold v4, containing several sustainable design features to complement its function. For example, instead of using city water to meet the demands of the more than 350,000 square foot facility, 100% of the site stormwater is recovered and used, which also relieves strain on the sewer system in heavy rainfall. 

Beginning immediately Maple Reinders' subsidiary AIM Environmental Group – Canada's largest private operator of environmental municipal infrastructure – will begin operations of the facility, on behalf of the city for a period of 10 years. AIM will adhere to Calgary’s and the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment's (CCME) strict standards to produce Class AA compost from the SSO material, and Class A Biosolids.
