With recent announcement by the B.C. Government indicating a strong preference for Renewable Natural Gas (RNG), B.C.’s gas utilities are now able to pay upwards of $30/GJ for RNG (click here for announcement). At this price point, the biogas market in B.C. is expected to grow rapidly over the next few years, creating exciting opportunities to turn manure, food waste, yard waste, biosolids, and other biomass into renewable energy.
To capitalize on this momentum, the 2018 Value of Biogas West conference will be held in Abbotsford on January 16th and 17th, 2018. Created for attendees to learn about biogas/RNG and the opportunities it presents, 2018 Value of Biogas West will increase attendees’ biogas/RNG awareness and understanding, while also providing a valuable networking opportunity for those involved or interested in the North American biogas/RNG industry.
2018 Value of Biogas West will include a half-day Info Session where attendees can learn about biogas/RNG, and the steps necessary to take a biogas/RNG project from conceptualization to fruition. A site visit to a local anaerobic digestion plant will be offered in the afternoon, followed by an evening networking reception.
Day two of the conference will include morning plenary sessions focused on biogas/RNG, including panel discussions, and concurrent streams of presentations in the afternoon focused on agricultural and municipal biogas/RNG topics.
This conference is anticipated to attract more than 200 attendees, comprised of individuals from agriculture, agrifood, waste management, and government, biogas/RNG product and service technology companies, utilities, investor, academics, and more. A preliminary program will be posted later in 2017. Stay tuned!
