BC’S NEWEST ANAEROBIC DIGESTER IS NOW TURNING POOP INTO POWER… AND YOU CAN SIGN UP FOR A SITE VISIT!
Seabreeze Dairy Farm in Ladner is now combining agricultural and non-agricultural waste to harness and utilize greenhouse gasses that would otherwise vent into the atmosphere. Under FortisBC‘s renewable natural gas program, this biogas is purified on site and injected into their natural gas system.
This project will be spotlighted at the end of this month at the 2015 Agri-Energy & Waste Management Forum (January 30-31) in Abbotsford, BC. This forum will open on January 30 with a session focused on Seabreeze Farm and conclude with a site visit on January 31.
