Organic Resource Evolves

It has been a busy couple of years at Organic Resource’s west coast operations. The New Westminster site has successfully transformed to a fully functional processing facility. What started as an empty shell in 2013 is now buzzing with activity.

Development at the site happened in two major phases. First, the office space for the overall management of Vancouver operations was built. In 2014, the second phase began, and the processing plant came together. A total of three large tanks were installed with engineered sloped floors for containment. The operation is designed to process 23 million litres of organics per year.

The hard work of our construction and commissioning team paid off tremendously. With the new capabilities of the plant, we will be able to process organic wastes (fats, oils and grease) in house prior to hauling it to anaerobic digesters within the Greater Vancouver Area to treat the resulting wastewater.
