The Ontario government is seeking public input on its proposal to reduce the amount of food and organic waste going to landfills. Proposed amendments to the Food and Organic Waste Policy Statement would clarify and expand the types of materials that should be collected by municipalities in green bins and encourage innovation in the processing of compostable products. CBA is preparing a submission to respond to the proposed amendments.More Updates
Ontario will soon be home to a new renewable natural gas (RNG) facility, which will create local jobs and stimulate regional economic development, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Canada. The Niagara Falls Renewable Natural Gas plant will be the largest of its kind in Ontario. “Walker Industries and Comcor Environmental are proud to partner with Enbridge to construct the largest renewable natural gas plant in Ontario,” said Geordie Walker, President and CEO of Walker Industries. “The Niagara RNG facility will contribute to a sustainable future by transforming landfill waste into clean energy, generating enough power to heat 8,750 homes every year while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 48,000 tonnes.”
The provincial government announced it is providing $10 million from the Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) fund through Emissions Reduction Alberta towards the building of a $45-million clean energy and organic fertilizer facility in Lacombe. The Lacombe Biorefinery is billed as an innovative facility that will create jobs, cut emissions and transform agricultural and plant waste. Provincial officials say the project will support up to 80 construction jobs and about 25 full-time jobs in Lacombe and Calgary, and that the facility will also cut about 40,000 tonnes of emissions each year – equivalent to taking about 8,500 cars off the road.
Coop Carbone and Coop Agri-Énergie Warwick are taking their agricultural biomethanization project a step further by implementing a membrane filtration process, an innovation that will further reduces GHG emissions, thanks to the financial support of $ 758,000, announced October 8th by the Federal Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, the Honorable Marie-Claude Bibeau. This grant will enable approximately ten agricultural producers to diversify their sources of income while reducing GHG emissions - a critical step for renewable energy production & the fight against climate change in agriculture.More News
