Currently, over 40 pct of the province's waste collection sector expenditures are related to transportation costs, which are expected to increase. The province's fleet of 3,650 waste collection and haulage vehicles consume about 130 million lpy of diesel.
The RNG trial will enable existing Ontario gas-fueled waste vehicles to reduce GHG emissions by as much as 440,000 metric tpy -- equivalent to removing 100,000 passenger cars off the road each year.

Conducted separately for Calgary Transit, Orange County Transportation Authority, and TransLink, these four-month projects analyze factors ranging from fuel usage and vehicle maintenance to the total cost of ownership and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions based on differing propulsion fuels in transit buses. Each project delivers a comprehensive review of existing CNG and RNG applications across Canadian and U.S. transit fleets, and determines total emissions based on transit fleet data from selected samples and average values.
"With thousands of RNG-fuelled buses already operating in transit fleets across the United States, CUTRIC's comparative analysis will determine whether RNG can quickly enable carbon-neutral mobility without sacrificing performance, reliability or range. The drive to eliminate emissions is rightly focused on the integration of new technologies, such as battery electric buses and hydrogen fuel-cell electric buses. RNG is often overlooked as another easily accessible, available and simple net-zero emissions alternative fuel for Canadian transit agencies today. Our study will show the extent to which RNG can support the drive-to-zero emissions today.
"RNG can play a vital role in reducing transit emissions by drastically reducing the cost and complexity of transitioning to zero emission buses It is interchangeable with the conventional natural gas used in existing and conventional CNG buses. It can be transported through existing pipeline systems to transit agency facilities using regular gas nomination and scheduling processes. With roughly 825 CNG buses on Canadian roads today, and with Canada's 10 operating RNG production facilities soon to be joined by another 230 that are in development, or under construction in Ontario alone, the technology is able to help displace diesel, one of the most carbon-intensive and costly fuels in the marketplace. "
CUTRIC is a socially responsible non-profit that spearheads, designs, and launches technology and commercialization projects that advance next-generation zero-carbon mobility and transportation solutions across Canada. It also develops low-cost simulation tools that help transit agencies predict how their electric buses, hydrogen fuel cell buses and autonomous smart vehicles will operate in real-time, according to the CUTRIC website.

With the support of Lehigh and Capital Power Corporation (Capital Power) with their local facilities, Enbridge will be applying to develop an open access carbon hub in the Wabamun area, west of Edmonton, Alberta, through the Government of Alberta's Request for Full Project Proposals process.
Combined, the emissions from Capital Power and Lehigh's planned carbon capture projects represent an opportunity to avoid nearly 4 million tonnes of atmospheric CO2 emissions. Once built, the Open Access Wabamun Carbon Hub will be among the largest integrated CCUS projects in the world, according to the Enbridge release. (Source: Enbridge Inc. PR, 26 Jan., 2022) Contact:

Enbridge will invest roughly $100 million in upgrading equipment to convert the farm derived RNG into pipeline quality RNG and provide transportation and marketing services to market that gas to U.S. customers.
Vanguard Renewables builds, owns, and operates the farm-based anaerobic digestion facilities that sequester the methane from food waste and manure, produce clean energy and low-carbon organic fertilizer, and support regenerative agriculture by returning the food nutrients back to the soil. Host farmers receive cost savings and a new income stream.
In December 2020, Vanguard launched the Farm Powered Strategic Alliance alongside food industry leaders Dairy Farmers of America, Unilever, and Starbucks. The Alliance is committed to developing a circular solution for food waste reduction, recycling, and decarbonization of the manufacturing and supply chain.

The City has also identified potential landfill biogas opportunities at three other City waste facilities. All four sites combined would have the potential to produce sufficient gas to meet the City's entire natural gas needs annually (excluding City Agency, Boards and Commissions).
The City of 2.9 million residents currently consumes 50 million cubic metres of NG annually, and the City's Agencies, Boards and Commissions (ABCs) consume an additional 60 million cubic metres of NG annually, for a combined total consumption of 110 million cubic metres annually. Incorporating RNG into the mix will allow the City to create a low-carbon fuel blend that will be used to fuel City vehicles and heat City facilities.
