Aecon ACCIONA Partners is one of the teams that has been shortlisted by the City of Edmonton to advance to the Request for Proposals (RFP) stage for the design, build, finance, operation and maintenance of the Edmonton Organics Processing Facility project in Alberta. Anaergia DB, Inc. ("Anaergia"), SYLVIS Environmental Services Inc., CIMA Canada Inc. and Dillon Consulting Limited are also members of the shortlisted team with Aecon and ACCIONA. The RFP is expected in the second quarter of 2021.
The project includes the construction of a new anaerobic digestion facility at the Edmonton Waste Management Centre (EWMC), as well as upgrades to the existing utility infrastructure and the system which turns biogas produced into renewable natural gas. The facility will expand the City of Edmonton’s organic waste processing capacity to 140,000 tonnes per year and contribute to reaching the City’s target to divert 90 per cent of waste from landfills.
