The system is destined for the remote coastal community of Ahousaht on Flores Island.
Waste2Energy Holdings, Inc., a worldwide waste-to-energy company, announced that it has received an order for a 4 MTPD Batch Oxidation System (sBOS™) from Waste to Energy Canada Inc. (WtEC).
The system is destined for the remote coastal community of Ahousaht on Flores Island. With a population of 1,000, the community is located within the world renowned Clayoquot Sound, which is a UNESCO designated BIOSHPERE. The BOS™ system will completely and effectively deal with the community’s waste stream comprising wastewater sludge, household, commercial, industrial & medical wastes as well as used oils, tires & biomass from a local sawmill.
The benefits to the community include:
- The elimination of the need for the transportation of the waste stream generated by the community – thus saving costs and pollution from the transport
- Allowing the community to reduce its carbon footprint via the elimination of landfill material and the associated detrimental effects such as greenhouse gases, water pollution and disease
WtEC plans to add a low pressure boiler to the BOS™ system to capture the energy during the conversion process and provide heating to a community greenhouse.
The unit is skid mounted and can be rapidly assembled and commissioned on site. W2e’s proprietary control system will also incorporate SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) capability that will facilitate remote monitoring of the unit’s performance.
