Conporec Inc. has signed a purchase option with the city of Murdochville for a portion of the lands and premises of the former mining company Noranda Inc., now property of the city of Murdochville. This option allows Conporec to take another step towards the construction and operation of a solid waste reclaiming plant for the municipalities of the Gasp Peninsula. It consists of three buildings in which will be installed the waste collection rooms, bioreactors, sorting equipments and compost maturation buildings.
Even though no final decisions related to the realization of the project have yet been taken by local and regional municipalities, it is important for the company to secure the targeted landed estates in order to ensure the carrying out of the project, says a news release from the company.
Conporec treats and reclaims solid waste through various patented composting and sorting-composting processes. The combination of processes treats 100 per cent of the organic content, allowing diversion of up to 75 per cent of the waste and reducing both landfill requirements and greenhouse gas emissions.
The company says the implementation of this project would allow the Gasp Peninsula to reach the same performance as the Lower Richelieu region which shows a reclaiming rate of 75 per cent reached with the implementation of a Conporec plant in Sorel-Tracy.
