In December, the CBA launched a new section on the website. “Insights” articles will be posted on a regular basis to contextualize important new information and announcements through the lens of Canada’s biogas opportunity. On December 17, the first Insights article was posted Two Ways That Biogas Can Unlock Canada’s Hydrogen Potential to discuss how biogas is the missing link that can allow Canada to immediately tap a reliable energy source, get quick greenhouse gas emission reductions, and support the increasing integration of hydrogen.
The Ontario government released a discussion paper for public consultation that will inform the creation of the province’s first hydrogen strategy. The paper sets out a vision for a new hydrogen economy in the province - one that will attract investment, and lead to more job creation, while helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions using low-carbon hydrogen. The discussion paper recognizes biogas from landfills and anaerobic digestion facilities as a regional opportunity to produce and advance hydrogen in Ontario. The CBA is preparing a response and welcomes contributions from members until January 8th, 2021.
