Empowering Municipal RNG Market Participation

An Ontario-focused study that quantifies the development of biogas & RNG production facilities across the province reflecting on the past, present and future activity in the space.

RNG outreach and market development

A summary report of the findings learned from a RNG Working Group made up of industry and government representatives that met several times in 2016 and 2017. This initiative was led by the Canadian Biogas Association (CBA) to connect stakeholders to improve their understanding and awareness of RNG, create market conditions to develop more RNG projects and to share information about RNG.

Organic Materials: Maximizing Resource Recovery from Waste Through Biogas and RNG Production

This study assesses the economic feasibility and environmental benefits of producing biogas by anaerobically digesting the organic fraction of the residential waste stream from the City of London, ON, and converting the biogas to RNG for use in compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles.

Municipal Guide to Biogas

The report is designed to help Ontario municipalities understand the biogas opportunities in their existing operations, including green bin organic material collection, wastewater treatment and landfill.

This guide outlines the benefits of biogas for municipalities and showcases real examples of systems across Ontario. This can be used to assist other municipalities with the review of their waste management options, assisting in the analysis and planning next steps.
