Production is expected to begin next month on an initiative to use the gas from human waste to feed the power grid in the Vancouver area.

The Lulu Island Wastewater Treatment Plant in Richmond will add the methane gas produced from human waste to the existing natural gas power infrastructure. It is expected enough renewable natural gas will be produced to heat more than 600 homes.

The biogas cleanup system purifies excess biogas which will be sold to FortisBC to be used in its natural gas grid.
