FORTIS BIOGAS CLEAN-UP
Municipal biogas clean-up and distribution
The Columbia Shuswap Regional District partnered with FortisBC at the Salmon Arm landfill to build a municipal facility to capture landfill gas and upgrade it to pipeline-grade, renewable natural gas (RNG).
This was the first project in BC to convert raw landfill gas into RNG. RNG can be distributed through existing pipelines or used as a low carbon transportation fuel. FortisBC offers RNG to its customers and the Salmon Arm Landfill is an important supplier.
