“We are anxious to pursue our work with SÉMER in order to continue to develop this new energy sector,” said Jean-Pierre Noël, General Manager of Gaz Métro Transport Solutions. “It is a very promising avenue for the sound management of waste, the local production of green energy, and the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in an activity sector that greatly needs it – heavy transportation.”
The annual production of liquefied biomethane at the Rivière-du-Loup plant is estimated at 3 million m3, which will lead to savings in GHG emissions of more than 7,000 tones. In fact, the use of biomethane as an alternative to diesel fuel by heavy trucks translates into a reduction of GHGs in the order of 85%.
