Designed to process 115,000 tonnes of organic waste a year, the Surrey Biofuel Facility uses the latest anaerobic digestion technology to convert organic waste into renewable natural gas (RNG) and a sophisticated enclosed tunnel process to produce high-quality compost. It is fully enclosed with a state-of-the-art air treatment system that ensures minimal odour impact on the surrounding community. The 160,000 square foot facility houses an organic waste collection hall, anaerobic digester, biogas upgrader, compost tunnels, odour abatement system, compost storage and an Education Centre.

Each year the facility will process organic waste from more than 150,000 Surrey households, local Industrial, Commercial and Institutional operations, and other municipalities in the region. The RNG produced is used to power the City’s waste collection trucks, operations vehicle fleet and to feed the City’s District Energy System. Their high quality ‘closed loop’ compost is available for purchase by a wide range of customers including farmers, landscapers and homeowners.
Following the tour of the Biofuel Facility we will convene a panel of three experts to discuss compostable packaging and the challenges and opportunities associated with its end of life.
