Énergir Development and Nature Energy Join Forces to Co-develop Biomethanation Plants in Québec

Énergir, a diversified energy business, and Nature Energy, a world leader in renewable energy, are joining forces to co-develop biomethanisation plants in Québec. This partnership is the result of the companies’ common desire to significantly increase the amount of RNG in the Québec natural gas distribution network and accelerate the pace of development of locally sourced renewable energy. Under the agreement, Énergir and Nature Energy will co-develop and implement up to ten projects, in Québec’s high agricultural density regions, producing up to 200 million m3 of RNG per year. The projects would supply one third of Québec’s 2030 RNG target, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 400,000 tonnes. This is comparable to taking nearly 100,000 gasoline-powered cars off the road.

Ontario and Canada Investing in Clean Energy Production Using Forest Biomass

The governments of Ontario and Canada are investing more than $11.3 million to expand CHAR Technologies’ facility in Thorold to produce renewable natural gas (RNG) and biocarbon – creating the largest facility of its kind in Canada, and the only RNG facility in the country to exclusively use woody biomass. Expanding CHAR’s Thorold facility will create close to 40 new direct and indirect jobs, as well as 20 construction jobs. CHAR Technologies has developed new technology to produce clean energy from woody biomass, including unused tree parts and mill by-products like bark, shavings and sawdust. Each year, the new facility will produce 10,000 tonnes of biocarbon as a coal fuel alternative for Ontario’s heavy industries, and enough renewable natural gas to heat over 5,500 homes.
