BC investing in renewable gas capture at Vancouver landfill

Oct 18, 2021

DELTA - Cleaner air, stronger communities and expanded economic opportunities will result from the latest CleanBC project, turning landfill emissions into renewable natural gas.

"Through CleanBC, we're making major investments that will reduce emissions and fight climate change," said George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy. "The Vancouver landfill project will remove an estimated 485,000 tonnes of carbon-dioxide equivalent over the next decade. This is a huge opportunity to replace fossil fuels and provide people, businesses and the city with low-carbon alternatives made from organic waste."

The Province is investing $4.28 million to expand the Vancouver landfill's gas-capture system through the CleanBC Industry Fund, with matching funds from the City of Vancouver.
