National Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) Handbook for Canadian Municipalities


The handbook's coverIdeal for municipal officials and staff, the National Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) Handbook is an applied resource for Canadian municipalities on the implementation of RNG. The Handbook reviews RNG sources, production, benefits, and provides an outline for RNG project planning and implementation.

Most municipalities across the country are already in a very strong position to tackle part of their GHG emission challenges by seizing the opportunity provided by the availability of biogas and turning it into useful RNG. RNG presents a unique opportunity not only to tackle GHG emissions and improve local air quality, but also to advance a circular economy for municipalities. When implemented on a municipal scale, biomethane can also be injected into local gas utility distribution systems as RNG, given its chemical similarity to fossil natural gas.
