Plans are being discussed for the construction of anaerobic digestion facilities in either of the Okanagan region’s Kelowna or Peachland communities to function as a means of breaking down biosolids for use as fertilizers or biogas.

Such facilities provide a solution to the amount of leftover material from sewage treatment plants. The cost to build an anaerobic digestive facility is about $100 million. Bacteria is used to break down biosolids during the digestive process.

Biogas that would be produced at such a facility could be upgraded and sold to utilities such as FortisBC.
