A $42-million consortium is backing N-Viro Systems Canada to build a biosolids management facility and upgrade the existing wastewater treatment facility in the City of Greater Sudbury, Ont.
Led by N-Viro, who will also manage the plant’s operation, the project will use sustainable methods for managing residual biosolids. N-Viro operates certified installations in Leamington, Thorold, Sarnia, Halifax, Banff and Summerside using the same technology.
The City of Greater Sudbury currently operates nine secondary wastewater treatment facilities where wastewater is transported by truck and transferred into open treatment ponds. The new construction will allow wastewater generated within the City to be treated there as well.
