Description: Climate change mitigation and the development of more circular economies are driving the conversion of wastes into renewable energy around the globe. At the same time, work is underway to make agricultural production and food supply chains more sustainable. Anaerobic digestion (AD) of livestock manure, crop residues, food processing effluents and municipal organics to produce heat, power and renewable natural gas, and to recycle nutrients, is recognized to provide solutions to numerous environmental challenges and to contribute to sustainable agriculture. While feedstock is available and the technology is mature, there exist hurdles that impede further investment. This presentation will review the current state of AD in Canada?s agriculture and agri-food sector, the potential for growth of AD 2.0, the shift in drivers from renewable energy to sustainable food supply chains, and proposed ways new designs, operating models and policies could facilitate the growth of AD in Canada.
