While the government’s changes to the Clean Fuel Standard, announced in December, were a major blow to biogas and RNG opportunities, the revised regulation still holds promise for advancing projects. On March 4th, the CBA submitted comments on the draft regulation to ensure as much opportunity for biogas and RNG producers as possible. The CBA would like to thank all the members who contributed input and expertise to this response. The CBA will continue to monitor the development of this regulation in 2021, and its implementation in 2022.
On March 9th, the CBA and Rob and Rachel McKinlay from Harcolm Farms hosted Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, for a virtual tour of the Harcolm farm biogas system. Following the tour, Minister Bibeau announced funding received in 2020 for the CBA’s Farming Biogas and agricultural RNG clustering tool. In 2021, the CBA is asking AAFC for $50 million in government grants to support the rapid uptake of farm biogas systems.
