Seabreeze Dairy Farm
Seabreeze Dairy Farm in Delta, BC combines anaerobic digestion and a biogas upgrading plant to produce high-quality biomethane from the manure of the farm’s dairy cows along with organic waste from the Metro Vancouver area. FortisBC operates the interconnection facility at this project, monitoring gas quality and connecting this source of renewable natural gas to customers. The nutrient rich digestate left behind becomes fertilizer for growing crops to feed the cows, creating a sustainable loop of food, waste and energy. Seabreeze produces 35,000 gigajoules (GJ) of renewable natural gas, which is enough to heat about 500 homes for a year.
