SURREY (NEWS1130) – Surrey mayor Dianne Watts is excited her city will be the site of our region’s first organics biofuel processing plant.
Metro Vancouver gave the go-ahead for it today. “We’re taking all of the food and organic waste from residential, commercial sources and producing biofuels that we are going to use actually to fuel the garbage trucks and some of our fleet.”
Watts says the plant in the Port Kells Industrial Park by the Surrey Transfer Station will be self contained so there won’t be any annoying smells from it. She adds other Lower Mainland communities are also looking at setting up organic waste natural gas plants.
