Surrey:  The City of Surrey has announced that three teams have been shortlisted to participate in the next stage of the competitive selection process to deliver the Surrey Biofuel Processing Facility project. Iris Solutions; Plenary Harvest Surrey; Urbaser S.A are three teams that have been invited to move forward to the Request for Proposals (RFP) stage.

Surrey Organics Biofuel Processing Facility is part of Surrey’s Rethink Waste program that was launched in October 2012, which includes curbside organics collection and an entire fleet of compressed natural gas waste collection trucks. As per City, the program has already led to a 43 per cent reduction in garbage sent to the landfill.
