The Canadian Biogas Association’s project of the year has been awarded to StormFisher in London, Ont. for its renewable natural gas (RNG) production system.
The company is a leader in the circular economy and decarbonization solutions. Its RNG production system reduces greenhouse gases in the environment through the transformation of food waste into carbon negative fuels.
The facility is owned by Generate Capital Inc., a leading diversified sustainable infrastructure company.
“The entire StormFisher team is extremely proud to receive this award,” Brandon Moffatt, co-founder and vice-president of development, said. “The addition of our renewable natural gas production system is one of the first to produce renewable natural gas from food waste to help solve both the food waste and carbon emission challenges.”
StormFisher is seen as a key driver in transitioning Canada’s dependence on fossil fuels into sustainable renewable energy through waste while growing the economy. The company has more than 15 years of experience in plant operations.
“These awards recognize and honour the accomplishments of industry leaders in the biogas sector,” Jennifer Green, executive director, Canadian Biogas Association, said. “We are proud to showcase successful Canadian biogas projects and provide well-deserved recognition to organizations like StormFisher, who are creating sustainable solutions to create a safe and clean planet.”
StormFisher processes more than 120,000 tons of organics at its London facility, from restaurants, grocery stores, municipalities and other organizations, including Enbridge, Maple Leaf Foods, Bartels International, Ontario Centre of Innovation, Labatt, and Waste Management.
“We’ve developed several sustainable waste management assets with StormFisher over the last several years and plan to do many more,” Scott Jacobs, CEO of Generate, said. “We’re thrilled the hard work, dedication and innovation of the StormFisher and Generate teams were recognized with this award.”
Generate Capital has partnered with StormFisher to scale the biogas industry in Canada.
Jeff Yurek, Ontario’s minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks and MPP for Elgin-Middlesex-London, said such private sector investments are “a great example of how industry can do their part by bringing forward innovative solutions that help Ontario meet its greenhouse gas emissions targets, while creating local jobs and powering Ontario’s economic renewal.”
