Organization: City of Ottawa

Timeline for Completion: 2024

Objective:

A project to upgrade the biogas-to-energy system at the City of Ottawa’s sewage plant was approved by council.

The city will replace aging “cogeneration” engines that convert methane into electricity. There are three engines at the Robert O. Pickard Environmental Centre that produce electricity for part of the plant, but city will replace them with more powerful engines and add a fourth one.
