Merritt/Hope (With Files From Merritt Herald) – Biosolid controversy.
The president of Emergent Waste Solutions wants to open and operate a state-of-the-art biosolid processing plant in Merritt that would break down biosolids into eco-friendly byproducts is thinking about closing down negotiations to their start up and take their business to Hope.
Last September, Kevin Hull, the president and CEO of Emergent Waste Solutions, met with Merritt city council, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) and five local First Nations bands to discuss his plan to operate a processing plant in Merritt.
The plant would use new technology called Advanced Pyrolysis System (APS).
The proposed stakeholders in the project have not come to any solid agreement and Hope has expressed interest.
Hull has gone on record that he is very interested in what Hope has to offer.
