The mayor of Augusta, Ont. says he can’t support a biogas plant proposed for Maitland after being inundated with emails from constituents opposed to increases in traffic and odours from such a facility.

Doug Malanka says the proposal may be the “wrong plant for the wrong site.”

Residents along County Road 2 – site of the proposed plant – received letters from H&D Properties Ltd. that an anaerobic digester facility was being considered for the Praxair site. The bio-digester is proposed to receive and process 219,000 tonnes of waste material annually on a daily, round-the-clock basis.

    Biogas plants, if properly designed, shouldn’t make odours. On the opposite, biogas plant is a cleaning system. It’s probably bad public relations issue. There should ecologist make assessment report. And local villagers should be invited to visit a similar operation
