BC city using biofuel to power waste management system

Surrey Biofuel Facility sets new bar in waste management.

May 28, 2018 - A new state-of-the-art facility is calling British Columbia home as Renewi Canada and the City of Surrey open North America’s first integrated closed-loop organic waste management system.

Used to produce renewable natural gas (RNG) and compost soil amenders, the Surrey Biofuel Facility (SBF) takes curb-side organic waste and converts it into fuel for the city’s fleet of natural gas vehicles. The $68-million facility, located in Metro Vancouver, opened March 9, 2018, and is expected to produce roughly 120,000 gigajoules of RNG and 45,000 tonnes of compost annually.
