Montenay Inc. has operated the Greater Vancouver Regional District’s (GVRD) Waste-to-Energy Facility since it began commercial operation in 1988. The facility has a throughput of 720 tonnes (800 tons) per day in three lines. It utilizes Martin grate technology and dry lime injection with a reverse pulse jet fabric filter. The original facility design did not include a steam turbogenerator for energy recovery. The facility produced process steam at near saturation temperature to supply a recycle paper mill. The aging mill has reduced the fraction of steam used in recent years. This caused the GVRD and Montenay Inc. to cooperate in a major facility upgrade that began in 2001 and was completed in August of 2003. The complete project includes a turbogenerator, major boiler improvements and modernization of the boiler controls, while continuing to service the recycle paper mill.
