DLS Biogas Logo
DLS Biogas is currently wrapping up construction of a new biogas to RNG (renewable natural gas) facility at J&L Walker Farms in Aylmer, Ontario. This new facility will process approximately 60,000 tonnes per year of manure along with up to 40,000 tonnes per year of off-farm organic feedstocks to produce approximately 120,000 GJ/year of RNG along with nutrient rich digestate fertilizer. J&L Walker Farms operate two dairy facilities in Aylmer Ontario as well as several poultry facilities. They are the largest dairy producer in Ontario. The biogas to RNG facility will feature two (2) anaerobic digester tanks to process the manure and off farm organic feedstocks into biogas that is upgraded to RNG. The RNG will be injected into the EPCOR gas distributions system in Aylmer.
