What is biogas?

Biogas is the gas created from the breakdown of organic waste. The gas is formed when bacteria eat organic waste and release methane, carbon dioxide and other gases. Instead of letting these greenhouse gases escape into the atmosphere, we capture the gas and store it until it can be used to create energy.

How does biogas production benefit the environment?

• It diverts waste from landfills
• It recycles a readily available source of energy
• It prevents methane (21x worse than C02) from going into the atmosphere
• It generates electricity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
• It stores its own energy, meaning it can dispatch energy whenever it’s needed
• It eliminates pathogens and odours from organic waste
• It returns valuable nutrients to the soil in the form of a rich fertilizer
