Largest Biogas Plant in Canada Officially Opens in Lethbridge

The largest biogas and co-generation plant in Canada has officially opened in Lethbridge.

The largest biogas and co-generation plant in Canada has officially opened in Lethbridge. The $30 million facility is located on 8th Avenue North in the Rave Industrial Park. It has the capacity to generate enough electricity for 2,800 homes through the conversion of manure and other farm waste materials. Lethbridge Biogas President Thane Hurlburt says southern Alberta is an ideal location for the plant because of all the animal waste material that's in the County of Lethbridge. The biogas plant currently employs six people but Hurlburt says the number of staff could double when the facility becomes fully operational next fall. -Bryan Jeannotte
