StormFisher and Modern Niagara partner to deliver renewable natural gas to building infrastructure


Ontario Construction News staff writer

StormFisher and Modern Niagara have partnered to utilize renewable natural gas (RNG) as a carbon reduction solution for building infrastructure across Canada. The agreement allows Modern Niagara to acquire RNG from StormFisher’s Ontario-based anaerobic digestion facility which produces biogas from food waste.

Food waste obtained by StormFisher undergoes a process that creates RNG that is captured, cleaned, and injected into the existing natural gas network to be used for the same applications as conventional natural gas.

Greenhouse Gas emissions are reduced when methane is captured and repurposed as RNG, rather than being released directly into the atmosphere. RNG will be available to Modern Niagara’s clients and is compatible with existing natural gas equipment.

“We are looking forward to working with StormFisher to enhance our sustainable service offerings,” said Chris Hill, chief operating officer, Modern Niagara Group Inc. “This partnership will allow us to offer an effective greenhouse gas reduction solution to our clients, helping them reach their sustainability goals and in turn reduce the negative impact that buildings have on the environment.

“We also aim to blend RNG as a solution to our own carbon reduction journey. We are committed to becoming a net-zero organization by 2030. In 2022 alone, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint from the energy consumption of our buildings in Ontario by 30%, based on 2019 benchmarks.”

The StormFisher biogas facility in London is the largest private organic waste-to-energy biogas facility in North America, converting over 100,000 tonnes of organic waste each year into renewable energy and organic-based fertilizer.
