National Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) Handbook

A Resource for Canadian Municipalities
RNG Handbook

An Applied Resource for Canadian Municipalities on the Implementation of Renewable Natural Gas

May 2020

Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) presents a unique opportunity not only to tackle GHG emissions and improve local air quality, but also to advance a circular economy for municipalities. When implemented on a municipal scale, biomethane can also be injected into local gas utility distribution systems as RNG, given its chemical similarity to fossil natural gas.  

Ideal for municipal officials and staff, our RNG Handbook reviews RNG sources, production, benefits, and provides an outline for RNG project planning and implementation.

The Webinar

On May 25th, QUEST, CGA, and CBA held a webinar to present the key findings of the Handbook. Tom McLenaghan, Program Manager, New Infrastructure – Waste Management Division of the Region of Peel shared their experience with the Anaerobic Digestion Facility Project.

Innovation Sandboxes

Innovation Sandboxes

The goal of the Regulatory Innovation Sandboxes project is to create foundational policy frameworks for legislated regulation innovation. The foundational frameworks can then be used by provincial, territorial and federal policymakers and regulators to create more effective policies, regulations, and programs to accelerate the transition to a low-emissions future efficiently and fairly using a multi-sectoral, collaborative process.
