IRDA developed the SHOCTM process to treat a variety of residual organic materials of agricultural, industrial, or municipal origin. This includes manure, crop residues, bio-solids, decomposable municipal waste, and other fermentable solids. SHOCTM is a closed-chamber biological treatment process that harnesses the heat generated by microorganisms to partially dehydrate and stabilize organic matter.
This process provides a solution that complies with Québec’s environmental regulations, which, starting in 2020, will prohibit the burial of organic matter.
SHOCTM is an industrial bio-drying or composting process that generates a partially dehydrated, sanitized, and deodorized final product that can be used beneficially as:
The SHOCTM bio-drying/composting technology can be used to dehydrate any solid organic wet matter, including residues or biomass generated by the food, forestry, agriculture, marine, and other industries.
IRDA is constantly on the lookout for companies wishing to enter into agreements to use the technologies developed by the Institute.
An exclusive license has been granted to Viridis Environnement to use SHOCTM technology for treating municipal organic waste.
Viridis provides a service for treating the organic fraction of household waste. Its processing chain includes the SHOCTM process to diverts tons of material from landfills.
