Putting organic waste to good use
As momentum to meet climate targets increases, RNG is steadily gaining ground as a viable way to step up climate action, quickly and affordably. Produced from organic waste, such as food scraps, farm waste and wastewater, carbon-neutral RNG is used to fuel fleets, power industry and heat homes and businesses more sustainably—making Ontario’s energy future that much cleaner.
How can RNG help you?
Generate a new source of revenue, with support and financing to turn organic waste into RNG.
Expert help to adopt a circular economy approach—repurpose the city’s organic waste to fuel fleets and heat buildings.
Turnkey solutions to switch fleets to compressed natural gas or RNG.
A crucial solution on the path to net zero
Produced from organic waste, RNG can be added to Ontario’s natural gas system and used as an alternative to conventional fuels and energy sources.
Diverts methane—one of the most harmful greenhouse gases—that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere.
Diverts waste from landfill
As Ontario’s landfill capacity is expected to run out by 2032*, RNG offers an immediate solution.
Versatile, resilient and market-ready
A made-in-Ontario solution that’s more resilient and easier to adopt than other types of low-carbon energy sources.
Spotlight on RNG leaders
Ontario’s first carbon-negative bus
Residents of Hamilton, Ontario are enjoying a cleaner commute. The bus is fuelled by RNG produced from locally-sourced organic waste at the StormFisher facility in London, Ontario.
- Diverts 450 tonnes of organic waste from landfill in one year.
- Equivalent to taking 185 cars off the road for a year.
- Captures more emissions than are released from the bus.
StormFisher unlocks the value of organic waste
At the biogas facility in London, Ontario, over 70,000 tonnes of organic waste is converted to RNG—eliminating over 80,000 tonnes of GHG emissions and producing over 3 million cubic metres (m3) of RNG.
Bluewater Recycling fuels trucks with local farm waste
Ontario’s first carbon-negative waste-collection truck runs on RNG largely made from cow manure produced at a local farm. In six months, it displaces emissions from 18,000 litres of diesel.
From Green Bin to RNG
The City of Toronto harnesses the biogas emitted from processing its Green Bin organic waste. The resulting RNG is added to the existing natural gas system and used to fuel the city’s waste collection fleet.
