Lystek to manage biosolids for City of Guelph

Cambridge, Ont. – Cambridge, Ontario-based Lystek International has signed a long-term contract with the city of Guelph, Ontario to manage its biosolids.

The contract extends an already long relationship between Guelph and Lystek, which demonstrated and commercialized a low temperature Thermal Hydrolysis Process (Lystek THP) in partnership with the city a little over ten years ago.

The city’s goal with this tender was to procure a qualified company capable of providing reliable, year-round management of their annual biosolids program, including receipt of the material, storage, marketing and distribution of the city’s LysteGro biofertilizer product.

The solution also needed to allow Guelph to increase its annual production of LysteGro with the primary drivers being environmental sustainability; reliability; and economic viability

Through the tender process, the City sought to align with an organization with proven experience, resources and equipment as well as reliable, year-round, off-site storage capacity and the ability to maximize its production of the Class A quality, Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) registered, LysteGro product.

“Lystek’s response to the tender demonstrated that it is positioned to fulfill all of the city’s requirements, including keeping our biosolids out of landfills,” says Tim Robertson, division manager of wastewater services for the City of Guelph.

“The city is looking forward to working with Lystek on this project, due to their understanding of the city’s operational cost requirements, its technology, ownership of a licensed Organic Material Recovery Centre and its experience with Class A quality, CFIA registered biofertilizer products.”

“We are committed to the development and nurturing of mutually beneficial, long term business partnerships that provide real value to our customers,” says Kurt Meyer, president of Lystek.
