Nov 20, 2012 - Canadian regional natural gas distributor FortisBC yesterday said it had commissioned a biogas plant at Salmon Arm's landfill in the province of British Columbia.
The plant will capture and upgrade biogas from the landfill waste and deliver it into the local natural gas distribution system of FortisBC.
The natural gas produced from the landfill is expected to be enough to heat up to 300 households a year and to initially offset some 1,250 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year, FortisBC said.
The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) owns and operates the landfill.
The project has received grants from the BC Bioenergy Network and the Province of BC's Innovative Clean Energy Fund.
