The 2022 Value of Biogas East Conference hosted on May 10 and 11 was a record-breaking conference for the Canadian Biogas Association. The first in-person conference in the East in over three years, attendees were eager and motivated to connect and meet face-to-face. Two full days of programming, plus an additional half day facilities tour option, the conference included informative sessions delivered by industry experts, record-breaking attendance, the largest exhibitor showcase in the history of Value of Biogas, and extensive in-person networking opportunities.
“This exceeded all my expectations”
The Value of Biogas East Conference kicked off by addressing how the biogas & RNG industry is part of the federal governments pathway to achieving net-zero emissions in Canada. Sessions covered every element of the biogas industry that will be crucial to achieving this net-zero goal. This includes looking to the global stage at COP26 to learn what is needed to drive change and policies in Canada, navigating Carbon Markets for biogas & RNG production, regulating biogas & RNG projects, tools that use project data to empower operations and development teams, and case studies.
“I made connections today that I never would have made had I not attended in-person”
The second half of the event started by focusing on the Global Methane Pledge, and how the biogas & RNG industry can punch above its weight to contribute to meeting Canada’s target. The conference continued with diverse sessions including a rapid-fire technology innovation showcase, learning more about the best practices in digestate management, a friendly discussion on the best end-uses for biogas, and an industry take on reducing costs and increasing affordability for anaerobic digestion in Canada. The event was rounded out with panel sessions on collaborative contraction for municipal infrastructure and biogas projects and exploring the exponential biogas growth in Denmark.
“This is my first time attending, I was impressed by the topics and speakers, definitely won’t be my last!”
