Renewable natural gas for the future

One of the ways we are helping transition Ontario to a lower-carbon future is through renewable natural gas (RNG).

Created from decomposing organic waste, renewable natural gas is sustainable and carbon neutral which reduces the greenhouse gas emissions into our environment. The waste needed to produce it can come from the organic waste in our landfills and can easily be added to our existing natural gas system.

Dufferin Facility RNG Project

The City of Toronto, in partnership with Enbridge, will begin installing new biogas upgrading equipment at the Dufferin Organics Processing Facility in 2019. The new technology will allow us to transform the biogas produced from processing Toronto’s Green Bin organic waste into renewable natural gas (RNG) and add that gas into the natural gas grid. Once in the grid, the City of Toronto will be able to use the RNG to fuel its collection trucks. This project is a first of its kind in Canada and North America.
