Les avantages du biogas

Benefits of Biogas

For a long time, organic waste was considered worthless – as well as polluting, cumbersome and expensive. It now represents a promising resource for our environment, our economy and our society.

For a long time, organic waste was considered worthless – as well as polluting, cumbersome and expensive. It now represents a promising resource for our environment, our economy and our society.

In addition to solving several waste management problems, producing RNG offers a viable and economically profitable means of meeting environmental targets. It’s worth remembering that more than half of all energy consumed in Québec still relies on imported oil.

Opting for local renewable energy promotes energy independence and helps strengthen the trade balance. Because biogas is considered CO2 neutral, it also reduces GHG emissions. Converting organic waste into biogas also prevents the methane produced during its decomposition from being released directly into the atmosphere. This is significant as methane is 23 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than CO2.

 

Upgrading organic waste into biogas gives it a second life, paving the way for:

Producing fully renewable energy
  • Creating local sources of energy and fertilizer
  • Putting in place a circular economy model
  • Supplying the gas distribution grid
Turning problems into economic gains
  • Offering a local and autonomous solution to waste management will lead to regional economic development
  • Promoting long-term profitability and the creation of jobs that cannot be relocated
  • Generating a new revenue stream for different sectors (municipalities, farmers, etc.)
Addressing environmental challenges
  • Reducing carbon dioxide emissions by replacing fossil fuels
  • Reducing methane emissions from landfills, manure, etc.
  • Reducing the impact of waste (pollution, inconvenience, space) by recycling it
  • Eventually, eliminating all organic matter in landfills
