November 26, 2023 – The Niagara Renewable Natural Gas facility has reached final stages of commissioning, reports Walker Industries, adding that it is now the largest RNG project in Ontario.

“The project represents our commitment to innovation and sustainability,” said Geordie Walker, president & 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.”

The Niagara plant will capture and refine landfill gas into RNG, providing enough clean energy for more than 8750 residential homes, says the company, while reducing GHGs by 48,000 tonnes over the course of a year.

The RNG facility is a $50-million partnership with Comcor Environmental Ltd. and Enbridge Gas Inc.

“The Niagara RNG facility celebrates a collaboration between industry leaders who have proven capacity and capability in energy and bio-gas utilization,” said Heidi Bredenholler-Prasad, Enbridge Gas.

The Niagara location has the necessary infrastructure to support the project, including a fully developed landfill gas capture and collection system and a direct connection to the Enbridge natural gas distribution system, which will be activated in the coming days.
