- Using this volume of RNG in the gas network by 2030 would eliminate 7.2 million tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions each year. That’s roughly like taking 1.5 million cars off the road.1
- GHG reductions could be even greater if RNG were to replace diesel fuel in heavy transport, since the latter accounts for 12.1% of total GHGs in Québec.2
- All regions of Québec will have technical and economic potential for RNG production by 2030.
- By 2030, RNG’s technical and economic potential increases because of second‑generation technologies that use forest residues in production.
