EverGen Supports Southern BC Recovery Efforts Following Severe Flooding
Collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and City of Abbotsford allowed timely clean-up of organic waste
VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–EverGen (TSXV:EVGN), Canada’s Renewable Natural Gas (“RNG”) Infrastructure Platform, aids in the relief efforts in Abbotsford and the surrounding area following flood devastation caused by a period of intense rain in mid-November. EverGen has been working in close partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Environment and the City of Abbotsford to support the region’s clean-up efforts by processing organic waste generated by the flood.
Net Zero Waste Abbotsford (“NZWA”) located at Gladwin Road, Abbotsford, EverGen’s composting and organic processing facility, was one of few that remained open following the flood. This is due in large part to efforts by site staff who managed the floodwaters and helped NZWA stay operational throughout. The NZWA facility was ultimately responsible for the disposal and clean-up of approximately 90% of the livestock waste generated by the flood. The processing of organic waste has been conducted in compliance with permits, produces top quality organic soil products and does not generate odour.
Fraser Valley Biogas (“FVB”) located at Interprovincial Hwy, Abbotsford, EverGen’s anaerobic digester facility, closed down due to an evacuation order in the surrounding area. Staff from FVB supported the team at NZWA as they invested extra time to extend operating hours and do everything possible to support the region.
“First and foremost, all of our thoughts are with those who were impacted by the flood,” remarks Chase Edgelow, CEO of EverGen. “We have demonstrated robustness and resilience in our business as one of the few facilities that remained open throughout this unprecedented weather event. This was a massive effort on the part of our staff, and we are grateful to them for showing strength and a commitment to supporting our local communities. We are very proud to be part of the agricultural community with both NZWA and FVB facilities located in the heart of the Valley farming area, which allows us to serve farmers in the Valley and be a key component of the agricultural community while respecting the integrity of agricultural land.”
EverGen is committed to continued support of the Ministry of Agriculture, the City of Abbotsford and the local community in clean-up efforts in the coming weeks and months.
