Biomass facility receives go-ahead in Fruitvale, Canada

REN Energy has received approval from the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary in British Columbia, Canada for the development of its Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) facility in Fruitvale.

“We are grateful for the incredible support of Ali Grieve at the Regional District, Steve Morissette, mayor of Fruitvale and MLA, Katrine Conroy,” said Phil Viggiani, CEO of REN Energy. “We look forward to breaking ground in early spring of 2023.”

REN Energy will be building a production facility that will create RNG produced from wood waste. This innovative project features a unique combination of existing technology being used for the first time in North America and will reduce emissions from British Columbia’s expansive forestry sector.

“Our Regional District believes this clean-energy project is a win for our community by bringing in new jobs and increasing revenue for the Beaver Valley,” said Ali Grieve, director, Kootenay Boundary Regional District. “We are supporting a cleaner future by improving environmental outcomes with this new technology.”
“Fruitvale is very excited about the opportunity for dozens of local well-paying jobs and fully supports this project as it moves forward,” said Steve Morissette, mayor of Fruitvale.
