Developers Guides


The Canadian Biogas Association has prepared a series of guides to help farmers explore new developments and new markets for biomethane.

Farm to Fuel: Developers’ Guide to Biomethane

Farm to Fuel: Developers’ Guide to Biomethane
The Farm to Fuel: Developers’ Guide to Biomethane was created to build the production of biomethane in Canada. The Guide helps farmers determine if biomethane production is a good fit for their farm and operations.  For those farmers considering developing biogas systems, and upgrading the biogas to biomethane, the Guide walks them through the planning process, offering a check-list of questions to ask relevant technology and service providers. It also alerts farmers to important considerations, such as feedstock, financing, permits and safety.

Developers’ Guide to Biomethane is provided for download free of charge. Investment in this project has been provided by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada through the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP). In Ontario, this program is delivered by the Agricultural Adaptation Council. Additional sponsors include the Biogas Association, Canadian Gas Association, FortisBC, Flotech, PlanET Biogas Solutions, and Tenergy Services North America Ltd/European Power Systems Ltd.

After reviewing the Guide, please take a moment to complete this short (4 questions) survey. This enables us to understand the value to readers, report results to sponsors, and plan future projects.
