Hydron Energy Inc., and Modern Niagara Group, Inc., have agreed to enter into a partnership providing waste-to-renewable natural gas (RNG) plants, product collaboration, and an investment into Hydron. This partnership and funding will accelerate Hydron’s INTRUPTor commercialization strategy and support manufacturing Hydron’s proprietary components in Canada.

“Modern Niagara brings deep experience in high volume production and value engineering, as well as access to significant commercial relationships,” said Soheil Khiavi, president and CEO, Hydron Energy. “We are excited to be partnering with Modern Niagara. Our shared vision will see many opportunities for commercialization of our technology as businesses across the country strive for net-zero emissions.”

Hydron’s patented INTRUPTor system significantly reduces the cost of upgrading biogas to RNG and enables the deployment of small-scale plants aligned with feedstock availability. The INTRUPTor, an acronym for Intensified Regenerative Upgrading Platform Technology, reduces the capital and operating costs of upgrading biogas to RNG by up to 50 per cent.

“With Hydron’s technology, we are confident that we can bring a viable solution to the currently under-served small-to-medium-sized RNG markets,” said Brad McAninch, CEO, Modern Niagara. “We are eager to work with Hydron to lower the cost of renewable natural gas production for customers of all sizes and scale.”


Modern Niagara’s equity investment in Hydron will be directed toward product commercialization and manufacturing development. Hydron is building the manufacturing capability to produce the INTRUPTor Module at its facility in North Vancouver, B.C.
