“Largest RNG project in Ontario” reaches final stages of commissioning
This facility will capture and refine landfill gas into low-carbon RNG, providing enough clean energy for more than 8,750 residential homes, according to Walker.
“The project represents our commitment to innovation and sustainability,” said Geordie Walker, Walker president and CEO.
“For the past 20 years, we have been harnessing landfill gas into energy and we are excited to provide a consistent source of clean natural gas that can heat homes and support industrial activity for many years to come.”
Walker has partnered with Comcor Environmental Limited and Enbridge Gas on the facility.
"RNG presents a tremendous opportunity to provide affordable, reliable, and low-carbon fuel for Canada's increasing energy needs, leveraging our existing energy system and stimulating economic growth," said Cynthia Hansen, executive vice president and president, gas distribution and storage, Enbridge, when the partnership was announced.
"For example, the Niagara RNG facility project will generate enough clean energy to heat 8,750 homes and reduce GHG emissions by 48,000 tonnes per year. This is just one example of how Enbridge is connecting consumers to renewables sources of energy. Together we're leading the way to a green energy future."
