The creation of Coop Agri-Énergie Warwick marks a major step toward increasing the production of renewable natural gas (RNG) in Québec. This agricultural cooperative will be the first to turn manure, as well as organic residue from area businesses, into RNG. Developed and run by Coop Carbone, the project will allow a dozen farmers to diversify their income streams while reducing their GHG emissions. A new biomethanization plant will make it possible to produce 2.3 million m3 of RNG and cut GHG emissions by 6,500 tonnes of CO2 eq each year, equivalent to taking 1,500 cars of the road. Énergir has pledged to buy all of the RNG the cooperative produces for 20 years; it will inject the RNG into its gas distribution network.
Members of the international biogas industry on Dec. 3 announced the launch of the Integrated Biogas Alliance, an innovative global partnership that will offer state-of-the-art, turnkey technology solutions for converting organic waste into renewable energy and organic fertilizers. Founding members of the IBA include Italy-based AB Energy, U.S.-based Eisenmann Corp., Italy-based Entsorga, Canada-based Greenlane Renewables, and Germany-based Tietjen. According to a statement released by the IBA, these companies have joined forces on a non-exclusive basis to provide the global biogas industry with a fully integrated organic waste to renewable energy platform solution. The platform aims to lower the inherent risks facing developers, investors and EPC’s in developing biogas plants, lowering project execution risks and improving their bankability.
The Natural Gas Innovation Fund announced December 2nd a total investment of $265,532 in the pilot-scale demonstration of Quadrogen Power Systems Inc.’s proprietary C3P gas clean-up technology. This is in partnership with the project co-funders including BC Bioenergy Network (BCBN) with $1,500,000 of funding and Western Economic Diversification (WED) with $1,100,000 of funding. The C3P technology will produce clean renewable natural gas (RNG) by taking biogas, derived from raw landfill waste from the City of Vancouver’s landfill facility, and turning it into clean energy.More News

Greenholm Farms in Embro, Ontario is a family dairy farm, with 250 cows, 850 acres of corn, soy and wheat, and a 500 kW biogas plant. The farm is operated by father-son team, Gord and Dave Green, following generations before them – the Green family has been in farming since Gord’s great-great-grandfather purchased the land in 1843. The Greens have worked with PlanET Biogas Solutions since 2012 to install an anaerobic digestion system capable of producing 500 kW of energy using on-farm and off-farm organics.Continue reading…
