April 3, 2018 - A far-sighted local government is working with one of the world’s leading brewers to protect its pristine regional environment with an outstanding wastewater pre-treatment facility for a new brewery that is set to become a major employer in the district.
March 8, 2018 - Researchers at the University of Waterloo are developing technology to produce renewable natural gas from manure so it can be added to the existing energy supply system for heating homes and powering industries. That would eliminate particularly harmful gases released by naturally decomposing manure when it is spread on farm fields as fertilizer and partially replace fossil natural gas, a significant contributor to global warming.
Feb. 12, 2018 - Natural gas pipelines that crisscross the Edmonton area will soon flow with an injection of renewable natural gas (RNG) from wood waste.
Jan. 30, 2018 - Brampton, Ont.-based Anaergia Inc. is pleased to announce the start of construction at a facility in Yabu City, Japan which will convert farm waste and food waste into renewable energy. This facility will use Anaergia’s advanced solid waste processing and wastewater treatment equipment. Toyo Energy Solution Co. has invested in the facility, and is building it, and will operate it.
Dec. 6, 2017 - Joe Panetta’s stomach has a big appetite. It runs on a diet of peppers, corn, sugars, fats, and a healthy dose of swine and chicken manure.

July 12, 2017 - New research from a professor of engineering at UBC's Okanagan Campus might hold the key to biofuels that are cheaper, safer and much faster to produce.
June 30, 2017 - For the developers of a new anaerobic digestion project, it is crucial to understand the availability of feedstock and of the tip fees the project can charge. But it is challenging to develop data that enables for planning and decision making for early-stage projects with no on-the-ground feedback.
May 1, 2017 - Researchers in Guelph, Ont., an hour’s drive west of Toronto, are hoping to mine the money out of sewage with a new technology that maximizes anaerobic digestion at wastewater treatment plants.

Oct. 3, 2016 - There’s a giant, covered pond filled with microorganisms at the Slave Lake Pulp mill site. It’s man-made, and it’s massive, the size of three hockey rinks. This is a new addition to Slave Lake’s wastewater treatment system and the source of the methane that the mill converts to green electricity.  
Sept. 12, 2016 - Greenlane Biogas has been contracted by Filtrum Construction, a Quebec-based water and wastewater treatment infrastructure construction specialist, to supply two ‘Totara’ biogas upgrading systems and additional equipment to upgrade the biomethanization plant located at the City of St. Hyacinthe’s wastewater treatment plant.
Sept. 6, 2016 - West Fraser Timber’s Slave Lake Pulp mill in Alberta has launched into the clean energy business with the opening of its anaerobic digester, which breaks down organic waste in the mill’s effluent to produce methane.
