In summer 2017, Saint-Hyacinthe will be the first city to inject biomethane into the Énergir network. Each year, more than 149,300 tonnes of organic wastes will be transformed into 13 million m3
of RNG. Of this, 1 million m3
will be used to heat its municipal buildings and 12 million m3
will be injected into the natural gas network to supply other cities, institutions and private customers.
The City thus expects to achieve savings of half a million dollars a year, thereby inspiring other municipalities in Québec, some of which are planning similar initiatives in the years to come.
