Cambridge, Ontario’s Lystek International Inc. was recently honoured by the California Association of Sanitation Agencies (CASA) with the award for Excellence in Innovation and Sustainability.
At the 63rd Annual CASA Conference in Monterey, California, the award was given in recognition of the successful, ongoing operation of the 150,000 ton, Lystek Organic Material Recovery Center, a public-private partnership originally commissioned in August of 2016 at the Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District in Fairfield, California.
The facility opened with 14,000 tons of volume per year from the FSSD and now provides services to numerous Bay Area agencies, including the cities of San Francisco, Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Benecia, and many others.
The CASA awards committee is made up of managers from CASA member agencies throughout California.
This latest award builds on the success and momentum for Lystek in the United States and it comes on the heels of the Governor’s Environmental and Economic Leadership (GEELA) Award for 2017, which was presented to the company at a special award ceremony held at the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) headquarters in Sacramento, California earlier this year. The award was presented to the company in recognition of its market-leading technical solutions, customer satisfaction, and numerous achievements in the sustainable management of biosolids and organics. The Fairfield project was cited as a leading example in the category of Sustainable Practices, Communities, or Facilities.
