Waga Energy to delop RNG upgrading at landfill biogas facility in Quebec

In France, Waga Energy has been enlisted by The Mauricie Residual Materials Management Board (RGMRM) to deploy its innovative gas upgrading solution at the Saint-Étienne-des-Grès landfill, in Quebec. The green gas produced will be purchased by Énergir, the largest gas distribution company in the province, and injected into its gas grid onsite. This landfill gas-to-RNG project will be the first in Canada to use the WAGABOX® technology, developed by Waga Energy to recover landfill gas in the form of RNG.

Under the agreement signed in March, Waga Energy will buy the landfill gas from RGMRM for a period of at least 20 years. The landfill gas will then be transformed into grid-compliant RNG by a WAGABOX® gas treatment unit built onsite. Waga Energy will generate income by selling its RNG production to Énergir. Until now, the landfill gas at Saint-Étienne-des-Grès was captured and burned in a flare.
