StormFisher to electrify veggie and fruit scraps from 47 Loblaw stores
Hopefully this will set the standard for grocery stores across Ontario and the rest of Canada. StormFisher Biogas has signed a deal with grocery chain Loblaws, which will send organic trimmings from 47 of its stores across southwestern Ontario to a StormFisher facility. StormFisher will then use its anaerobic digestion systems to convert the waste into biogas, and then burn the biogas to generate electricity that will be sold onto the provincial grid under the feed-in tariff program. That program pays between 10.4 and 16 cents per kilowatt-hour, depending on the size of the facility. StormFisher expects operation will begin in 2010.
