Working together to solve emission-intensive processes
Industry is critical to Ontario’s economy and growth. It also relies on natural gas for energy-intensive processes. For many of these processes, including steel and concrete production, electricity isn’t a viable alternative today.
The industry path to net zero maps out how we can scale and accelerate sustainable solutions, such as renewable hydrogen and carbon capture and storage (CCS), to reduce emissions while keeping energy reliable and affordable.

Innovation in action
Many critical processes, including steel and concrete, can’t be electrified. Hydrogen, created from surplus electricity, is a powerful energy source that can serve industrial processes in the future.
Renewable natural gas (RNG)
Created by capturing methane emissions from organic waste, RNG can be blended into the gas pipeline and used to power industrial processes that can’t be electrified today.
Carbon capture and storage (CCS)
CCS technologies can deliver negative emissions by removing carbon emissions from the air before it enters the atmosphere. It can then be stored underground or converted for another purpose.
Enbridge embarking on world-class carbon capture and sequestration hub
In service as early as 2025, the hub will be among the world's largest projects of its kind, capturing carbon from industrial emitters and helping Canada to meet emission reduction goals.
Through incentives and expertise, Enbridge Gas delivers conservation programs to help industrial customers lower their carbon footprint and their energy costs.
How the world’s first carbon-neutral food company cut emissions
Maple Leaf Foods in Hamilton, Ontario uncovered a variety of energy-saving opportunities—including a heat recovery project that achieved significant emissions reductions.
How we helped Magna drive down energy costs and emissions
Motor Specialty Manufacturing Ltd., a division of Magna, implemented heat recovery and installed equipment controls. Today, they’re saving $121,500 a year on natural gas.
