Project Description: Pursuant to the Act and Regulation, the facility, in respect of which the project is to be engaged in, is considered to be an Anaerobic Digestion Facility Class 3. If approved, this facility would have a total maximum name plate capacity of 200 kW. The project location is described in the map below.

Documents for Public Inspection: The project is being proposed in accordance with the requirements of the Act and Regulation. The Draft Project Description Report titled “Petawawa Net Zero Project: Renewable Energy Approvals Application: Project Description Report, Preliminary” describes the project as upgrading the existing anaerobic digester technology to convert the Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) from its traditional treatment-based process to a Resource Recovery process, achieving the goal of being an Energy Net Zero Plant. The proposed Project involves upgrading the plant’s existing anaerobic digester(s), improving the digestion efficiency of the WPCP sludge and allowing additional biosolids and organics (from food waste or fats, oils and grease) to be brought into WPCP from the Town and neighbouring wastewater plants as well as other biosolid producers (breweries, commercial, restaurants, etc.). Biogas generated through the anaerobic digestion process would be used to produce renewable energy on-site through Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Engines and other beneficial use of biogas.  A copy of the Draft Project Description Report is being made available for public inspection on November 6, 2020 at https://www.petawawa.ca/residents/public-works/public-works-notices/notice-of-public-meeting-petawawa-net-zero-project-9099.html.  Written copies will be available at the Town Hall, 1111 Victoria Street, Petawawa, Ontario, K8H 2E6.
