Envirosoil Limited - Waste Oil Recycling and Water Treatment Facility Project

Description

This is to advise that on 28 November 2022, 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.

On 8 April 2021, Envirosoil Limited first registered the Waste Oil Recycling and Water Treatment Facility project for Environmental Assessment. On 28 May 2021, the Minister determined that the registration information was insufficient to make a decision, and that additional information was required. On 21 December 2021, Envirosoil registered an Additional Information Addendum for Environmental Assessment. On 18 February 2022, the Minister determined that the information was insufficient to make a decision on the Project and that additional information was required regarding facility operations and potential impacts of the Project on the marine environment.

Minister's Decision

On or before 27 January 2023, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change will decide if the project can be granted conditional environmental assessment approval.
