Metro Vancouver is investigating the potential to develop a facility at the Coquitlam Landfill to process waste dropped off at transfer stations from small vehicles (pick-up trucks, trailers, vans etc.), with the potential to supplement the small vehicle waste with construction and demolition waste. Small vehicle waste is approximately 55% wood and is therefore highly suitable for recovery of alternative fuel and recyclable materials. The project could result in greenhouse gas emission reductions of 70,000 to 85,000 tonnes per year through the use of alternative fuels in facilities such as cement plants, district energy systems and pulp mills.
With support from the Washington State Department of Commerce, Light House (home of the National Industrial Symbiosis Program – NISP®) and the Center for Sustainable Infrastructure are pleased to invite you to an Industrial Symbiosis Workshop to help your business find opportunities to add value to ‘waste’ resources, and to provide input regarding future Washington state industrial symbiosis efforts.
