Feb 20: BCWEN Tour of Harvest Power Energy Garden

The Harvest Power Energy Garden produces biogas from municipal green yard waste and compost. The facility in Richmond uses anaerobic digestion technology to produce power from the region’s food scraps and yard debris.

When:  February 20, 9:00 am
Where:  7028 York Road, Richmond

This project is the first commercial-scale high solids anaerobic digester (HSAD) facility in Canada. Harvest’s Energy Garden in Richmond is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 9,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent each year and produce 2 megawatts of energy; enough to power more than 900 lower mainland homes.

The tour is free but space is limited and we need to provide the names of guests by February 6. Please email jessica.mcilroy@bcwen.ca if you would like to attend.
