Quebec City’s executive council announced that it ratified a preliminary contract with CO2 Solution for the development of an experimental reactor at the city’s municipal waste incinerator on August 18, 2004.
According to a report from Canada Newswire, the contract is estimated to be worth $300,000, and is financed jointly by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (Green Municipal Enabling Fund), the Quebec environment ministry and the Province of Quebec.
The details of the final agreement will be revealed at the contract signature, which should be held before the end of August. The project is expected to be complete by May 2005.
CO2 Solution has developed a biological process allowing for the transformation of carbon dioxide into environmentally benign bicarbonate. This process takes place inside a bioreactor with the aid of an enzyme that accelerates the transformation of carbon dioxide into bicarbonate in an aqueous environment
