New research project will advance renewable natural gas agenda
COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH PROJECT AIMS TO SUPPORT LOCAL GOVERNMENTS
Renewable Cities is proud to announce the launch of a new collaborative research project that will help build the capacity of B.C. local governments to generate RNG.
Natural gas is the source of one-quarter of British Columbia’s greenhouse gas emissions. For many municipalities in the province, natural gas combustion for is a primary source of GHGs.
Renewable natural gas (RNG), derived from organic waste, has the potential to reduce these emissions by displacing fossil fuel-derived natural gas for all uses. Local governments have the potential to harness waste feedstocks to produce clean, renewable energy, creating new economic opportunities while reducing approximately one million tonnes of GHGs annually.
The research project will launch at an event in Vancouver, B.C. on Friday, June 15.
