Company Profile


Les Composts du Québec inc. has a mission: to become the leader
in the fields of composting and development of organic matters
as well as in the fabrication of specialised compost-based
growing mixes. Les Composts du Québec inc. has been working in
the field of composting since 1979 and has now become the most
important Canadian company specialising in treating urban
organic wastes (grass clippings and leaves), industrial wastes
(paper and agribusiness residues), and farming wastes (manures)
through composting. It operates 3 composting sites, the main one
located in Saint Henri, Quebec, nearly Quebec City.

Our Installations

Not only does Les Composts du Québec have at its disposition
several independent composting units capable of an annual
production of up to 300 000 m3 of compost, but it uses
specialised equipment for the production and distribution
of compost-based growing mixes. Also, a treatment
system designed to deal with run-off from compost production has
made it possible to return pure water to the environment.
The different techniques the enterprise uses make it versatile
enough to be able to identify, for each type of waste, an
appropriate treatment at an optimal cost while still continuing
to produce top quality products.

The Outaouais factory uses a new covered and automated composting process called 'robot-composting', which includes odour control through biofiltration. This first factory of its type is
recognised as an innovative approach in the field of composting
organic wastes.

Product Name:
Composting
Composting constitutes an organic waste management technique and an attractive alternative to conventional management techniques (landfilling, incineration). This method is recognized by the various levels of government as a preferred way of achieving the goal of 50 % waste reduction by 2000. There are many methods of composting and the usable technologies vary from low (piling and mechanical turning) to high (covered composting using reaction chambers and mechanical ventilation). The company uses these two levels of technology depending on a number of factors (geographical, climatic, technical, agronomic and economic). Composting methods will henceforth include leachate and odor management modes to maintain environmental quality. The company has acquired unique expertise in these two areas from managing composting sites in Quebec's climatic conditions. Composting is particularly suited to wet and highly fermentive organic wastes, as it allows transformation of agricultural, municipal, commercial and industrial wastes into agriculturally and horticulturally useful products.
