CCA is pleased to present Maple Reinders with the 2018 CCA Environmental Achievement Award for their success in implementing environmentally-sound practices and its work in communicating sustainable approaches as viable options.

City of Edmonton’s High Solids Anaerobic Digestion Facility will be integrated into the operation of the existing facilities at the Edmonton Waste Management Centre, expanding the city’s organics waste processing capacity and contributing to the goal of diverting 90% of waste from the landfill. Maple Reinders Constructors Ltd., as the design-build construction manager, oversaw detailed design and construction of the foundations, building superstructure, installation of all equipment and fabrication of cast-in-place concrete; including digester and aeration boxes. The project also included the supply of Combined Heat and Power equipment. Methane generated from the facility will be used to generate both electricity and heat for the centre.

The Maple Reinders team designed the facility with a reduced footprint while allowing increased logistics for the material flow through the structure. In terms of environmental sustainability, Maple Reinders included a number of components that would classify for LEED® certification. Its design includes many environmentally-sustainable concepts, including processing and treating all wastewater through the composting process, minimizing residual waste and re-using the generated heat to heat the fermenters.
