The Toronto Zoo is excited to be the site location of the first biodigester in Canada to use zoo manure and organic waste to pro

"...When food waste and manure rot in landfills or compost piles it releases methane gas — a very potent greenhouse gas — into the atmosphere contributing to climate change. At the ZooShare Biogas Plant the methane is converted into renewable energy..."

Food waste becomes California's newest climate change target

"...Most people in California will be required to toss excess food into green waste bins rather than the trash. Municipalities will then turn the food waste into compost or use it to create biogas, an energy source that is similar to natural gas..."

Water, water everywhere, and a tough choice about what to do with it all

"...According to Clean Energy BC, the self-proclaimed “voice of the Clean Energy industry and independent power for over 30 years”, the road to a green energy future lies in harnessing the numerous hydro, wind, and solar energy opportunities across B. C. The advocacy organization represents over 130 different groups, from First Nations with “run of river” hydro operations (like the Dasque-Middle project near Terrace), to small solar projects like the SunMine project near Kimberley, plus a handful of other innovative projects like biomass and biogas projects at landfills near Victoria (Hartland) and Cache Creek..."

Is Big Gas finally learning to love biogas? Corporate Knights

"...For years, biogas didn’t get this kind of love from Big Gas. Lumped in with those once wooly technologies like wind and solar, biogas presented unique complications: working out arrangements with municipal waste management agencies, finding sources of decaying stuff that could be tapped economically, and purifying the captured methane so it could be reused..."

Popcorn used to create an eco-friendly alternative to polystyrene foam

"...According to the university, the foam absorbs heat better than EPS, it is much less flammable, and it can be composted, shredded for reuse, used to produce biogas, or even utilized as animal feed once discarded (and no, there's no word on whether or not people can eat it). Additionally, along with the maize kernels, corn industry waste such as broken cobs can be utilized in its production. The technology has recently been licensed to Germany's Bachl Group, which will be commercializing it for use in building insulation..."

Pacific Northern Gas enter 15-year with ATCO to purchase renewable natural gas

"...“Our new, renewable energy option is part of our commitment to operating sustainably for the benefit of the environment and the communities where our customers and employees live and work. ”RNG is a low-carbon, pipeline-quality gas that is fully interchangeable with conventional natural gas. The gas is produced by capturing and upgrading biogas generated by decomposing organic waste by-products from farming and forestry, landfills and wastewater treatment plants..."

This Vancouver landfill could soon heat your home. Should it?

"...Renewable gas (RNG) is the catch-all term to describe all methane captured from wastewater treatment plants, landfills and manure from farm animals. Even wood waste and municipal organics can be placed into a digester tank, where 'biogas' is captured and then purified.  ..."

New Brunswick clean energy targets coming ‘before the snow hits': minister

"...Nova Scotia recently announced that it will look to generate 80 per cent of its power from renewable sources by 2030. Comeau says New Brunswick should at least match that commitment, or even move further for a target of 90 to 95 per cent by the middle of the next decade. As it stands the province gets 81 per cent of it's electricity from non-emitting sources, stacking the 51 per cent coming from renewables with another 30 per cent coming from the Point Lepreau nuclear plant..."

Pretreating nuisance green algae with lye, urea increases bacterial production of biogas

"...To produce biogas from algae, researchers commonly use a naturally occurring process called anerobic digestion, in which a type of bacteria break down the algae and produce a methane-rich gas mixture that can be purified. The resulting methane can be used in the production of heat, electricity, methanol, car fuel, and other clean energy sources..."
