Biogas for Fine Paper:

A Cascade, Gaz Métro and Waste Management Project


The objective of this case study is to generate transferable lessons and knowledge from the key technical, economic, financial and governance factors and decisions that led to the installation of a biogas collection system in the Ste-Sophie landfill, near Montréal, Québec to supply energy to a fine paper mill, via a dedicated 13km pipeline. The study highlights the project’s features and successful implementation strategies, to help avoid pitfalls for future ICES projects in other communities in Canada.
