In June 2015, the City of North Battleford, Saskatchewan was recognized with a national Environmental Award by the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators (CAMA) for conversion of its traditional wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and historical practice of landfilling biosolids into a an advanced and sustainable, Wastewater Resource Centre (WRRC). This was accomplished by being the first municipality in Western Canada to implement Lystek’s proven solutions for biosolids management. The City can also now claim that it is the first community in Western Canada to receive a federal registration from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for the pathogen free, LysteGro™ biofertilizer product now being produced at its WRRC. This is the sixth Lystek-enabled, thermal hydrolysis facility to receive this important distinction.
