Subprogram C: Community/Regional SRM Destruction or Containment

  • for development of infrastructure for regional solutions throughout province

  • funding to be determined on case by case basis


Subprogram D: Bovine Dead Stock SRM Storage, Destruction or Containment

  • intended for existing dead stock collectors (Carson’s Stock Farm, Dargatz Mink Ranch, Canal Farm, Robertson Farms)

  • funding to be determined on case by case basis

  • closely linked to Subprogram C


Subprogram E: Environmental Assessments Required for Projects

  • EA review required by CEAA funding trigger

  • funding: 100% to maximum of $30,000


CEAA Consistency Projects

Environmental Assessment Survey

  • Inclusion List Questions

  • Exclusion List Questions

  • Small-Scale Infrastructure Applicability


Subprograms C and D Projects

Overarching Guiding Principles

  • Existing SRM generators with economically feasible solution for SRM and non-SRM

  • Solution addresses SRM generated from:

    - slaughter establishments

    - cut and wrap facilities

    - dead stock collectors

    - farmers and ranchers


Guiding Principles Projects

  • Solutions are economically and environmentally sustainable in the medium to long term (10 years)

  • Capacity to handle major mass carcass disposal events

  • Availability to new entrants to enable industry expansion


Guiding Principles Projects

  • Compliance with CFIA, MOE, and ALC acts, regulations and guidelines

  • Projects to be based on sound science and technologies to be at commercial implementation stage


Guiding Principles Projects

  • Projects to result in net positive benefit to existing businesses affected by rising disposal costs

  • Demonstration of support by majority of affected SRM generators

  • Projects must result in acceptable methods of

    SRM disposal, whether by destruction or containment


Guiding Principles Projects

  • Province-wide solutions better than regional better than individual/piecemeal

  • Most comprehensive in dealing with both SRM and non-SRM


Guiding Principles Projects

  • Ability to deliver end results in most cost-effective manner

  • Resulting in province, public or SRM generators having some measure of control over facility operations

  • Highest support from industry and local government


Miscellaneous Projects Projects

  • Ference Weicker Contract: Options and Evaluations of SRM Disposal Technology for the Fraser Valley

  • Stantec Consulting Contract: Economic Assessment of Combustion Technologies for SRM Disposal

  • Demonstration Incinerator


Community Solution Challenges Projects

  • identifying and choosing appropriate regional solutions and technologies

  • weighing on-site solutions vis-à-vis community solutions

  • support from local governments and industry

  • incorporating other waste streams (mass mortality, solid manure, municipal wastes)

  • community acceptance

  • limited funding

  • meeting timelines
