Surrey has announced it is erecting a 70-metre (229-foot) odour-control stack in January at a biofuel facility near 98 Avenue and 192 Street.

Biofuel site in Port Kells to get 70-metre odour-control stack

Facility will be the continent's first closed-loop, fully integrated organics waste system.

A huge smoke stack is being erected in Port Kells for a biofuel facility.

Surrey announced this week it is erecting a 70-metre (229-foot) stack in January, 2016 at the facility near 98 Avenue and 192 Street.

For reference, the giant Canadian flag at the car dealership at 152 Street and 104 Avenue is 85.85 metres (282.4 feet) high –  or 15 metres taller than the planned stack.

When operational, all of the waste air will be sent into the stack, making it a critical component of an odour mitigation system.

The facility will convert kitchen and yard waste into renewable natural gas (RNG), which in turn will fuel the city’s natural gas waste collection trucks and service vehicles.

It will also provide a renewable fuel for the city’s new district energy system in City Centre.

The facility will also produce a compost product that will be suitable for landscaping and agricultural applications.

The facility can receive and process 115,000 tonnes of organic waste annually. When completed, the facility will be the largest of its kind in Canada with a capacity to process all of the Surrey’s organic waste.

Once the biofuel processing facility is operational, Surrey will be home to the first closed-loop, fullyintegrated organics waste management system in North America.
