The CBA has published Biogas and Renewable Natural Gas in Ontario: 2019 Market Overview and Outlook to understand the development of biogas and RNG production facilities in Ontario reflecting on the past, present and future activity in the space. The report builds upon a series of seminars and think tanks as part of the Empowering Municipal RNG Market Participation Initiative supported by the IESO. Visit the initiative website for supportive reference sheets, infographics, and newly released project profiles on the City of Surrey, City of Toronto, and City of Stratford.
The CBA has drafted an industry-led Canadian Anaerobic Digestion (AD) Guideline as a best practices document developed to assist stakeholders in deployment of AD facilities that process food and organic waste materials, including agricultural feedstocks. Stakeholders include developers, regulators, organizations or members of the public with specific or general interest in AD facilities. In June the CBA provided members a pre-viewing of the document prior to sharing for public input.
The CBA is committed to joining a newly formed Fertilizer and Supplements Advisory Committee (FSAC) that works with interested stakeholders in the regulation of fertilizers and fertilizer supplements. In Canada, some larger-scale anaerobic digestion facilities have Fertilizer labels to create a beneficial fertilizer product from digestate. Having an informed exchange with CFIA and other stakeholders on this topic is critical to the growth and development of the biogas sector.
