$1.4 million needed to repair Kelowna dump in wildfire aftermath

"...“On Aug. 17, in the evening, city staff got a call there was a fire that jumped the lake and it was coming towards the landfill,” Scott Hoekstra, manager of Landfill and Composting Operations at the City of Kelowna, said. “Fortis asked us to shut off the gas and biogas plant and staff came out and started working on getting areas around the landfill prepped in case the fire came towards us the next day..."


Biogas plant in Chilliwack becomes largest of its kind in B.C.

"...Waste, like livestock manure and local food waste, is transformed into biogas in air-tight tanks through fermentation..."


Enbridge, Divert break ground on renewable fuel facility in Washington

"...Enbridge, which bought a 10 per cent stake in Divert earlier this year for US$80 million, is one of a number of traditional fossil fuel companies that have been investing in RNG as concerns about climate change intensify. According to the World Biogas Association, organic waste from food production, food waste, farming, landfill and wastewater treatment are responsible for about 25 per cent of human-caused global emissions of methane, a harmful greenhouse gas..."


Don’t let wastewater opportunities flow down the drain

"...In its new report, Wastewater: Turning problem to solution, UNEP warned that only 11 per cent of treated wastewater is reused while around half of the world’s untreated wastewater still enters rivers, lakes and seas. Furthermore, CO2 emissions from wastewater are substantial, hovering slightly below those from the global aviation industry.  With the right policies in place, wastewater could provide alternative energy to half a billion people, supply over 10 times the water obtained through desalination processes and reduce the demand for synthetic fertilizers..."


Ontario’s clean power plan that’s ‘not really a plan’

"...After the Bruce Power announcement, the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, composed of the Saugeen First Nation and the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation, said they will not support any new projects on their territory until there is a solution to storing Canada’s nuclear waste. The nuclear plant, which would be the province’s largest nuclear power project in more than 30 years, needs environmental approval from the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada, meaning even if it is approved, it won’t be opening any time soon. The Ontario government said large-scale nuclear power projects typically have a lead time "of a decade or more," which Brooks stresses is too far in the future to address the current climate crisis and the immediate need to reduce emissions..."


Ontario to seek new wind, solar power to help ease coming electricity supply crunch

"...The last round of procurements Smith announced for electricity generation involved both natural gas and battery storage projects. The new planned procurement of green power, including wind, solar, hydroelectric and biogas, will pair well with recent energy storage procurements, Smith said, so that power generated by solar panels, for example, can be stored and injected into the system when needed..."


The CHFCA welcomes Hycamite TCD Technologies Ltd. as a New Start-Up Member

"...“We are pleased to welcome Hycamite to the CHFCA family,” said Ivette Vera-Perez, President and CEO of the CHFCA. Based in Kokkola, Finland, Hycamite has developed an innovative and highly efficient process that converts biogas or methane into significant quantities of hydrogen. It is exciting to witness the growing interest from industry players like Hycamite in Canada's methane pyrolysis pathway for clean hydrogen production..."


Power from poop: Wastewater upgrades in Calgary to harness biogas

"..."The new system will reduce Bonnybrook's greenhouse gas emissions by about 17,500 tCO2e/year by reducing natural gas use and electricity import, minimizing biogas flaring, and improving plant energy efficiencies. This is roughly the equivalent of taking 5,600 cars off Calgary’s roads," said Orin MacIntyre, lead wastewater treatment engineer..."


East Africa: Smallholder farmers adopt bio-digesters to build climate resilience and get clean energy for cooking

"...Joseph Kayizzi shows bio-slurry manure that he gets from the biogas digesters. [Richard Wetaya]Biodigesters are airtight containers in which organic material (such as cow dung or crop leftovers) is deposited to ferment and produce biogas (a mixture of methane, carbon dioxide, and other trace gases) for use in cooking and lighting..."


The Importance of Crafting a Compelling Narrative About Your Company

"...StormFisher’s business takes a minute to grasp. The company made its name in the biogas industry, building processing plants that create renewable natural gas from food waste. Last year, it sold those operations to Generate Capital..."
