Learn what’s next for biogas and RNG in Canada! Register today for Canada’s largest biogas and RNG event – The 2018 Value of Biogas East in Gatineau, QC on March 22nd and 23rd. The conference will profile policy developments and address the topics affecting biogas and RNG today including challenges, opportunities, innovations, developments, and case studies for agricultural, municipal, and industrial projects. Attendees of the 2018 Value of Biogas East will benefit from key learning experiences and valuable networking opportunities in the Canadian biogas sector.
On March 22nd from 8:00am to 12:30pm in Gatineau, QC the CBA is hosting Moving Towards a Circular Economy. This free half-day session will look at landfill organic waste bans and consider implications for municipalities and opportunities for RNG energy project development. Learn about the value-added opportunity to convert organic feedstock into RNG, basic costs and considerations and lessons learned from other jurisdictions. The workshop is free; however, we ask that you register to confirm your attendance to ensure we can accommodate participant interest. Note that this workshop will be held prior to the Value of Biogas East conference. Consider registering for the full event to take in more valuable sector information and networking.
The Government of Ontario, through the Ministry of Energy, intends to use Cap-and-Trade funds to enable Ontario’s gas utilities to procure RNG from sources such as landfills, waste water, agricultural waste, source-separated organics and municipal green bin programs while ensuring that the procurement of RNG is cost-neutral to customers. To support this initiative, Enbridge Gas Distribution (EGD) and Union Gas Limited (Union) are inviting interested companies to submit proposals for the sale of RNG to EGD or Union for a term of up to 10 years. If your RNG production facility is located in Ontario, please confirm that your facility is located within EGD’s franchise area or Union’s franchise area in order to be able to inject into the distribution system. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for the sale of RNG to the utilities, please complete a brief survey for EGD or a survey for Union to receive the RFP package which includes additional information on the process.
The study on Fuelling Farm Vehicles with Compressed Biogas completed by the CBA with support from Natural Resources Canada is now available online. This study investigates the technical feasibility and value of using compressed biogas as a vehicle fuel to displace diesel in converted farm vehicles. The study aims to educate farmers and technology providers on opportunities to utilize biogas to fuel farm vehicles, evaluate applications and provide a cost-benefit analysis.
