Okanagan BC Reconsidering Biogas Options (Ind. Report)
Methane, Regional District of the Central Okanagan
Date: 2019-01-07
In British Columbia, Canada, following a 2012 feasibility study to collect and process food waste the Regional District of the Central Okanagan (RDCO) reports it is examining new ways and programs to handle household food waste.

The District, which currently captures and sells landfill waste bio-gas from the Glenmore Landfill, is re-evaluating its future organic waste diversion opportunities while maintaining existing landfill gas collection infrastructure and commitments with FortistarBC for the sale of gas, according to the final draft of the district's Solid Waste Management Plan which is awaiting provincial regulatory approval.

One of the solid waste management plan's goals is to re-evaluate organic waste diversification options while maintaining landfill gas collection. A proposal for several small compost sites to mix residential food waste with yard waste are being considered at a projected cost of $25 million each. The RDCO is applying to the province to have a bio-cover made of compost at Campbell Mountain Landfill, which would eliminate methane gas at that larger site.
