Synagro to Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Maintain the Hamilton, Ontario Biosolids Project
Baltimore, MD, March 30, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Synagro Technologies, Inc. announced today that the Harbour City Solutions consortium signed a contract to design, build, finance, operate and maintain (DBFOM) a biosolids management project for the City of Hamilton, Ontario. Synagro is the lead member and majority equity holder in Harbour City Solutions. Consortium members Bird Construction and Maple Reinders will jointly design and construct the Hamilton facility, while Synagro will be responsible for oversight, long-term operation and maintenance of the facility, as well as beneficial use of the product.
The plant will process up to 60,000 wet tonnes of biosolids per year over the 30-year term of the contract. The ANDRTIZ drum drying process will convert biosolids into pellets which will be sold as slow release organic fertilizer or as a renewable fuel substitute to coal burning industrial facilities. This project will provide important benefits to the community and environment including reduced truck traffic, odour, noise and greenhouse gas production, as well as improved air quality.
The Hamilton project will be Synagro’s tenth heat drying facility, adding to its portfolio of experience with more than twenty large scale biosolids processing facilities provided via the public-private partnership. This project represents Synagro’s first foray into the Canadian biosolids P3 market and establishes the company as a prominent participant in this growing sector.
“Synagro is excited to be the City of Hamilton’s Preferred Partner to DBFOM a sustainable solution for its biosolids,” said Steve Cole, President and CEO of Synagro, “This project leverages Synagro’s unique capabilities to create value for the City and builds a long-term presence for Synagro in the important Canadian P3 biosolids and organics recycling market.”
