Toronto, Ontario


Veolia North America provides environmentally conscious biosolids management solutions with state-of-the-art dryer/pelletizer.


The City of Toronto retained Veolia in 1998 to support the design and construction of its wastewater biosolids management facility at the city's 216-MGD Ashbridges Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant. In 2003,while the city was starting up the plant, a fire heavily damaged the pelletizer facility and it had to be shutdown. The city and Veolia Water Canada worked together to develop and implement a recovery/reconstruction plan that resulted in a design/build contract to rebuild the facility, and its operation, maintenance and management (O&M) was subsequently contracted to Veolia. We also oversee product marketing for the biosolids.


  • Work with city to develop a Product Marketing Plan for the product that is produced by the facility.
  • Work with design affiliate to provide design/build services for the pelletizer facility to produce all-natural, low-nitrogen content fertilizer pellets suitable for a variety of beneficial use applications.


  • Received design/build contract to rebuild facility based on efforts to develop and implement a recovery/reconstruction plan.
  • Selected as Toronto's long-term O&M services provider after successful reconstruction.
