Edmonton’s RDF Facility – CONCEPT to IMPLEMENTATION

SWANA Northern Lights Conference, Edmonton, AB – June 20, 2013

Lena Aitken, Project Engineer, City of Edmonton

Uwe Eschenhorst, Project Manager, Vecoplan LLC


Outline

  • History of Edmonton’s journey to Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) production.

  • RDF – what is it?

  • RDF Project – from concept to final design

  • Welcome Vecoplan!

    • Major Equipment Supplier

    • Design Build Construction Management Services


History

  • Cloverbar Landfill is getting full!

    • 2009 was estimated closure date

    • Starting premise – there IS a better solution to landfilling

  • City already had very established recycling and composting programs, currently diverting 60% of the waste

    • Looking to process the remaining 75,000 tonnes/yr of Composting residuals and 5,000 tonnes/yr of MRF residuals.

  • Specific targets include:

    • Increase Edmonton’s landfill diversion rate from 60% to 90%

    • Reduce Edmonton’s need for landfilling, without going to traditional combustion systems.

Area

- MRF Residuals

- ECF Residuals

- Wood Waste

RDF – What is it?

  • Produced in the 3rd Phase of the Integrated Process and Transfer Facility (IPTF)

    • Sort out the most suitable material from the trash and residuals.

    • Process it to achieve homogenous, quality, and uniform material.


RDF Project – Concept to Design

Considerations along the way….

  • Low speed shreddervs. High speed shredder

    • Separate explosion proof building required to house the high speed shredders.

  • Equipment Supply & Design Build Construction Management vs. Design–Bid–Build

    • Equipment manufacturing firm designs and supplies equipment systems with demonstrated performance.

    • Performance guarantee for the production of RDF.
