Vancouver seeks new technologies for waste-to-energy

January 5, 2012 |

In Canada, the city of Vancouver, British Colombia is looking for international companies to bid on a new high-tech garbage incineration and gasification system. One contract will be for a waste-to-energy incinerator that can handle at least 500,000 tons. The other, which will be open to company with alternative technologies, will be for 100,000 tons. The Metro Vancouver regional board is expected to issue requests for proposals by the end of March 2012.

The city of Edmonton, Alberta has already started construction on a new large-scale garbage-processing facility that will intensively sort all garbage, removing anything recyclable, and treat the rest to produce North America’s first bio-ethanol products from garbage.
