Lystek International has announced that a multi-year contract was formally executed between the Cambridge, Ontario based provider of advanced biosolids management solutions and the City of Guelph, Ontario. This the first installation of the now market-leading, low-temperature Lystek Thermal Hydrolysis Process (Lystek THP)
Which was demonstrated and commercialized in partnership with the forward-thinking City a little over ten years ago.
The City’s goal with this tender was to procure a qualified company capable of providing reliable, year-round management of their annual biosolids program, including receipt of the material, storage, marketing and distribution of the City’s LysteGro biofertilizer product.
The solution also needed to allow the City to increase its annual production of LysteGro with the primary drivers being:
- Environmental sustainability
- Economic viability
“Lystek’s response to the tender demonstrated that it is positioned to fulfill all of the City’s requirements, including keeping our biosolids out of landfills,” says Tim Robertson, division manager of Wastewater Services for the City of Guelph. “The City is looking forward to working with Lystek on this project, due to their understanding of the City’s operational cost requirements, its technology, ownership of a licensed Organic Material Recovery Center and its experience with Class A quality, CFIA registered biofertilizer products.”
“We are committed to the development and nurturing of mutually beneficial, long-term business partnerships that provide real value to our customers,” says Kurt Meyer, president of Lystek.
