$100 million investment announced for Lachute recycling facility

The empty wine bottle from last Saturday’s dinner or the jelly jar from Sunday brunch could have a second life at a plant in Lachute.

Québec City-based RV2 Technologies is investing $100 million over 20 years in Tricentris, whose facilities are in Lachute’s Synercité business park.

Tricentris collects and processes most of the items from municipal recycling programs across the MRC d’Argenteuil.

RV2 is developing a technology to extract silica and zeolite from recycled glass.

Through the partnership, 25 per cent of selected glass that Tricentris receives will be used by RV2.

“The alliance between Tricentris and RV2 Technologies is an excellent environmental breakthrough in the creation of new industries recovery and value-added products,” said Lachute Mayor Carl Péloquin.

“With their vision, their leadership and their sense of innovation, Tricentris and RV2 Technologies can revolutionize the practices and join perfectly the principles that the MRC d’Argenteuil defends in terms of sustainable development,” said MRC d’Argenteuil Prefect Scott Pearce.

The Synercité business park is designed to promote the transfer of the material between companies and the exchange of expertise, which is intended to promote sustainable development.
