Toronto has issued an RFQ for a small-scale research facility for processing of the City of Toronto’s residual municipal solid waste.
The City of Toronto, Canada is seeking to qualify public and/or private sector respondents interested in participating in the development and operation of a small-scale research facility (SSRF) for the treatment of Toronto’s residual municipal solid waste. Only qualified respondents will be invited to submit proposals in response to a forthcoming Request for Proposal (RFP) for this project.
The SSRF will employ new and emerging technologies to process the residual municipal solid waste remaining after materials intended for other waste management programs such as the recycling and organic materials diversion programs, have been partially separated at source by the waste generator. Expected to operate for two – five years, the SSRF will process between 5,000 and 20,000 tonnes annually. For the purpose of this Request for Qualification (RFQL), new and emerging technologies includes the following processes: physical; biological; chemical; or thermal, which includes and is limited to pyrolysis, fixed-bed gasification, fluidized bed gasification, high temperature gasification and plasma gasification where: a synthesis gas is produced and pre-treatment of synthesis gas is undertaken prior to thermal oxidation.
The RFQL (Document # 9155-04-7021) closes at 12:00 noon (EDST) on March 4, 2004. The RFQL document can be downloaded from www.toronto.ca/tenders/proposal.htm. For information regarding RFQL submission requirements, contact Ms. Marni French at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
