Quebec signs $300K contract with CO2 Solution for incinerator reactor
QUEBEC CITY, QUE-Quebec City's executive council has signed a preliminary contract with CO2 Solution for the development of an experimental reactor at the city's municipal waste incinerator. The contract, whose value is estimated at nearly $300,000, is being supported jointly by the Green Municipal Enabling Fund (admnistered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities) and the Quebec Ministry of Environment, along with the city itself. The full details of the project will be made public once the final contract is signed; this is expected to take place shortly. Work will begin at that time and should be completed by May 2005. CO2 Solution, based in Sainte-Foy, near Quebec City, has developed a biological process for transforming carbon dioxide (CO2) into non-toxic bicarbonate. The process takes place within a bioreactor, aided by an enzymatic accelerator. More information is available on the company's Web site, www.co2solution.com.
