Thermo Design Engineering (TDE) has partnered with REN Energy International (REN Energy) to create a first-of-its-kind RNG plant in British Columbia.

REN Energy has been working on a method that creates RNG from wood waste. The firm will build, own, and operate the facility in Fruitvale while FortisBC will own and operate the interconnection facility on the site that will connect the project to FortisBC’s natural gas transmission system.

“Our priority has been focused on pioneering sustainable projects, and so we are very excited to partner with REN Energy to bring innovation to the RNG market,” said Sean Montgomery, president of TDE.

“Working alongside our partners, we are creating jobs and boosting the Canadian green energy economy through cutting-edge technology.”

Phillip Viggiani, president and CEO of REN Energy, commented: “Working with an innovative partner like TDE helps bring excellence in engineering and design to this essential green energy project.

“Partnership has always been important to us and we look forward to bringing this first-of-a-kind project to North America.”
