The CBA will be hosting two exciting and informative annual conferences in 2019, Value of Biogas West in downtown Vancouver on January 15-16, and Value of Biogas East in Toronto on March 21-22. The Value of Biogas West and East are Canada’s Premier Biogas and Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) Conferences, and the best way to connect with the industry network. Interested in enhancing your company’s biogas expertise to municipal, industrial and agricultural sectors in Canada? Consider any of the sponsorship opportunities available for either or both Value of Biogas conferences.
Do you have a technology, case study or experience related to biogas/RNG development, challenges and opportunities? We want to hear from you! Submit an abstract for an opportunity to present at Canada’s leading biogas/RNG conferences - the 2019 Value of Biogas West and East conferences in Vancouver and Toronto. We encourage you to send your submission by September 14 to build on our 2019 Value of Biogas programs.
Xebec Adsorption Inc. a global provider of clean energy solutions and CBA member, announced today that it has been selected by Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc to be the supplier for the turn-key biogas upgrading system for the City of Toronto’s first Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) facility, located at the Dufferin Solid Waste Management Facility.

Three Canadian companies have been selected to advance technologies that improve the business case for the on-farm production of renewable natural gas in British Columbia. The companies have been selected by Foresight Cleantech Accelerator Centre and BE Bioenergy Network (BCBN) as finalists in the ARCTIC Innovation challenge. They will receive funding and support to advance their technology solutions aimed at converting the by-products associated with anaerobic digestion into commercially viable products. The three winning companies are Muddy River Technologies, CH Four and BioPolynet, and Trident Processes.
On August 22 the Quebec Government’s Official Gazette published the Draft Regulation on the quantity of renewable natural gas to be delivered by a distributor. The draft Regulation sets the minimum quantity of RNG to be delivered by a natural gas distributor at 1% of the total quantity of natural gas the distributor distributes as of 2020, and progressively increases that quantity to set it as of 2025 at 5% of the total quantity of natural gas distributed. Study of the matter has shown no specific negative impact on small and medium-sized businesses.
Cooking oil and similar waste can clog pipes, harm fish and even grow into solid deposits like the “fatbergs” that recently blocked London’s sewage system. But UBC researchers may have found a way to treat these fats, oils and grease—collectively called FOG—and turn them into energy. “The principle would be the same: you pretreat the FOG so it doesn’t clog the pipes, and add it to sewage sludge to produce methane from the mix,” said Lo.More News
