Producing more energy means importing less of it. By transforming their organic waste locally, municipalities reduce their dependence on fossil fuels. It’s one step closer to energy independence.
Potential that has promise
Biomethanation gives your table scraps a second life and reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. The energy produced by municipalities can be used to power their buildings and vehicles.
A sustainable solution
In addition to possessing all the properties of ordinary natural gas, biomethane is a renewable and carbon-neutral energy source that emits 90% less greenhouse gas than oil. A smart choice for transportation and heating.
Enormous vat in which organic waste undergoes fermentation during the biomethanation process. It’s like a large artificial stomach.
Saint-Hyacinthe, biomethane producer
Innovation fueled by gas
Saint-Hyacinthe is the first city in Québec to use biomethanation to help meet its energy needs. In partnership with Gaz Métro, this initiative will heat municipal buildings and fuel city vehicles while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It’s a great example of a community repurposing waste to produce renewable energy.
I still have energy to spare. How do you like them apples?
266 apple cores can power a tractor-trailer over a distance of 1 km, while emitting 90% less greenhouse gas than oil.
Vegging in a biodigester produces energy.
Turning your vegetable peels into renewable natural gas is easier than you think!
Biomethane, there's nothing scary about it.
What if your municipality coculd turn your organic waste into renewable natural gas? Another solution to reduce greenhouse gases.
Biomethane: a promising energy source for municipalities
By transforming them into biomethane, a 100% renewable natural gas, many Québec municipalities can reduce their energy costs and cut their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at the same time.
