CCA is pleased to present Lystek International, a Division of the Tomlinson Group of Companies, with the 2017 CCA International Business Award.

Lystek’s patented thermal hydrolysis biosolids (THP) technology was founded at the University of Waterloo. Following commercialization, a demonstration-scale plant was constructed and proof of concept at the plant facilitated the first commercial-scale facility. Lystek strategically targeted California due to its unique legislation surrounding landfilling of organic materials by leveraging the company’s success with seven design-build-transfer projects in Canada and a Canadian Technology Company of the Year award.

Since its opening just over one year ago, the Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District’s (FSSD) Organic Material Recovery Center (OMRC) project has secured numerous additional volume commitments from a variety of other Bay Area agencies. Lystek is now engaging in market development activities in the Northeast U.S., China and Argentina.
