Envirosoil Limited - Waste Oil Recycling and Water Treatment Facility Project

Description

This is to advise that on December 21, 2021, Envirosoil Limited registered an Additional Information Addendum for the Waste Oil Recycling and Water Treatment Facility Project for Environmental Assessment, in accordance with Part IV of the Environment Act.

The purpose of the proposed undertaking is to install and operate a facility that will be used for receiving, processing and recycling of waste oil and the treatment of waste waters. The origin of the waste oil and waste water will be primarily from commercial sources. Treated water will be discharged to the Halifax Harbour, not the Halifax Regional Municipal sanitary sewer system as proposed in the original Registration Document. Collected oil will be sent to approved facilities for reuse. The undertaking is at a commercial/industrial property at 750 Pleasant Street, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The installation of processing and treatment equipment is anticipated to commence in Spring 2022 with commissioning and operation planned for the Summer of 2022.

Minister's Decision

This is to advise that on February 18, 2022, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change released a decision concerning his review of the proposed Waste Oil Recycling and Wastewater Treatment Facility. The Minister has determined that the information was insufficient to make a decision on the Project and that additional information is required. The Proponent must provide information regarding facility operations and potential impacts of the Project on the marine environment.
