Organics Biofuels Facility Project (Surrey, BC)

Project Description

The organics biofuel facility will process residential and commercial kitchen and yard waste into a renewable fuel, which will then be used to power vehicles, including the City’s new fleet of 100% Compressed Natural Gas waste collection trucks. The facility will be situated on City-owned property located in Port Kells adjacent to the Surrey Transfer Station. 

The City collects waste from approximately 100,000 homes. Based on recent studies, Surrey has concluded that approximately 65% of its residential garbage is comprised of organic waste that could be diverted for this purpose.

Under the DBFOM model, a private partner will be chosen to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the facility in a long-term agreement.
