SUEZ to build composting facility in Montreal

SUEZ, a Paramus-based water and wastewater management company, announced Thursday it will build a new composting facility in the Saint-Laurent borough of Montreal.

The new center will be able to process up to 50,000 tons of organic material every year. The facility will recover in compost green and food waste produced by the residents of the West Island of Montreal as well as pre-compost from one of the city’s biomethanation centers.

The structure is expected to be completed in fall 2021, and will be operated and maintained by SUEZ for five years.

“We are proud to support the City of Montreal in in its policy to recover organic waste into new resources. With this contract, SUEZ strengthens its presence in Canada, where it already supports the City of Edmonton, Alberta, in the treatment and recovery of 160,000 tons of waste and confirms the Group’s commitment to provide local solutions towards a circular economy,” Eric Gernath, CEO, SUEZ North America, said.
