Mayor Rachel Bailey participated in a municipal tour of Sustane Technologies’ $16M solid waste-to-energy facility under construction at Keizer Meadows solid waste site in Chester yesterday. The plant is scheduled to begin operating this spring. It is projected that 90% of municipal garbage from curbside collection in Chester, the Town of Lunenburg, and surrounding area will be converted into high efficiency biomass pellets, synthetic diesel fuel, and recyclable materials (metals and plastics). This is not incineration – Sustane has patented a thermo-mechanical process to create a variety of energy products. Sustane and other operations will use some of the products as fuel themselves, and they have secured a contract with Emera to supply biomass pellets for electricity production. This is a major breakthrough for Sustane and the Province to address declining plastic film recycling markets and divert much more garbage from local landfills. Over 40 new local jobs will also be created at the Sustane plant. For more information, visit the Sustane Technologies website: www.sustanetech.com.
