Capital Regional District Residuals Treatment Facility

The Residuals Treatment Facility (RTF) project is a major component of the overall Wastewater Treatment Project for the Capital Regional District in Victoria, B.C., which includes the  core area municipalities of Victoria, Esquimalt, Saanich, Oak Bay, View Royal, Langford and Colwood, and the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations.

The state-of-the-art facility is designed to process 14,000 dry tonnes of residual solids from the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant into Class A biosolids using anerobic digestion (AD) and thermal drying processes. As part of the AD process, Biogas is captured and reused within the drying process.
