The facility processed 160% of budgeted tonnage of organic waste during the last six months of 2021
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, February 8, 2022 -- EverGen Infrastructure Corp. (TSXV:EVGN) (“EverGen”, or the “Company”), Canada’s Renewable Natural Gas (“RNG”) Infrastructure Platform, announces that its Sea to Sky Soils organic waste processing and composting facility (“Sea to Sky Soils”) processed approximately 160% of its budgeted tonnage in the second half of 2021. In total, Sea to Sky Soils processed approximately 36,000 tonnes of organic waste in 2021. Having maintained permit compliance as expected, Sea to Sky Soils is working with the Ministry of Environment to expand operational capacity in 2022.
EverGen partnered with local municipalities – including Metro Vancouver and the municipality of Pemberton – for the delivery of additional organic waste to the facility throughout 2021 and onward. Further to generating additional revenue, the facility serves as a source of valuable feedstock to support EverGen’s existing and future Renewable Natural Gas (“RNG”) operations.
“Sea to Sky Soils is an important part of EverGen’s RNG infrastructure platform. As a key facility positioned to contribute to our future growth in RNG production, we are excited about the organic waste processing achieved during 2021,” says EverGen Co-Founder and CEO Chase Edgelow. “With increased performance at Sea to Sky Soils we are setting the stage to expand our RNG production across the platform”.
Sea to Sky Soils is one of three projects in EverGen’s portfolio and has been operating near Pemberton, BC on Lil’wat Nation land since 2012. The Lil’wat Nation is a key partner and supporter of the facility, which has employed a majority of staff from the First Nation since inception and supports social, cultural and recreation programs in Mount Currie.
