Sustane Chester

The Chester project was launched in September 2016 with an agreement between Sustane and the District of the Municipality of Chester, NS to divert their landfill destined MSW to a Sustane facility.   The plant was designed to transform up to 70,000 tonnes per year of MSW into 35,000 tonnes per year of Sustane biomass pellets, 3.5 million litres per year of diesel fuel plus recyclable metals.  The project will increase landfill diversion rates for Chester, Valley Waste Authority (Annapolis Valley) and Municipal Joint Services Board from approximately 50% to over 90%.

The project broke ground in March 2017 and is currently undergoing testing with full operation expected in Q1 of 2019.
