Leamington RNG is a facility currently under development in Leamington, Ontario for the conversion of biogas produced from the anaerobic digestion of organic residuals into pipeline quality renewable natural gas (RNG) for injection into a natural gas distribution network.
The existing anaerobic digestion facility produces approximately 10,500,000 m³/y of biogas which is a mixture rich in methane and carbon dioxide. The biogas will be polished and converted to RNG using a Biogas Upgrading System (BUS). This process will produce approximately 210,000 GJ/y of RNG.
RNG that is produced and injected into the pipeline will be used as a renewable alternative to heating homes and businesses. The use of Leamington RNG's renewable fuel will avoid approximately 12,000 tonnes per year of greenhouse gas emissions to the environment.
Leamington RNG strengthen's our commitment to a circular economy through the upgrading of a waste product for reuse. The early stages of the engineering design phase are in progress, with an anticipated commercial operation date in Q2 2025.
