May 19, 2010 – Agricultural biogas holds great promise for energy production, greenhouse gas reduction and income growth in rural Ontario. It may also hold the key to developing alternatives to pertoleum as a feedstock for certain chemicals and plastics. However according to some in the field, it also faces formidable public policy hurdles. Stanton Farms of Ilderton, north of London, is a leader in the field, as outlined in a current Toronto Star item.
Stanton Farms engergetic consultant Gerry Fortune is a featured presenter in the Agriculture session at SWEA Assembly 2010, June 3-4 in London. On-farm biogas has even greater potential as one of many potential feedstocks in chemical and plastics production, and Dr. Murray McLaughlan, president of the Sarnia-based Sustainable Chemistry Alliance, will give insight into those possibilities as part of the same session.
Both sets of technologies offer tremendous potential for the transformation of the Southwestern Ontario economy.
