Along with key partners Earth Tech and Maple Reinders, Christiaens Group
undertook a Design/Built in order to create a new first phase compost
facility for the Region of Peel.
60.000 tonnes of residential curb-side collected waste can be processed in this
facility on a yearly base. Because of the fact that only the first phase takes place
in this facility, in order to assure the required pathogen reduction, the
materials are shipped to the Region of Peel’s Caledon Facility for open
The tunnels in this facility are equipped with a complex air handling network
which allows the operators to use different streams of air (hot, cold) from
other tunnels.This system decreases the retention time as well as the amount
of air to be exhausted.
