  • Renewable natural gas is natural gas…but better. That’s because it’s made from local organic waste found at B.C. landfills and farms such as Fraser Valley Biogas and Salmon Arm Landfill. Before methane gas from the breakdown of waste escapes into the atmosphere, it’s captured and cleaned. Then, we add it into our pipelines, giving British Columbians a renewable source of energy.

  • Renewable Natural Gas


  • What is Renewable Natural Gas?

    When bacteria break

    down organic waste from

    sources such as landfill

    sites, agricultural waste

    and wastewater

    treatment facilities, they

    create biogas.

    FortisBC is capturing and

    purifying it to provide

    renewable natural gas, a

    locally produced, carbon

    neutral energy source for

    homes and businesses.
