National Challenge Systems recently reported that Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment has issued the first certificate of approval (C of A) in the province for the use of off-farm organic residuals as feedstock for an on-farm anaerobic digester for biogas production.

The anaerobic digester is integrated into a dairy farm owned and operated by Paul and Fritz Klaesi, of Cobden, Ontario. Paul Klaesi said the C of A represents “the culmination of over 18 months of joint effort between us and [National Challenge subsidiary] Organic Resource Management Inc.” The next step, said company president and CEO Charles Buehler, will be to conclude a supply agreement with the Klaesis.

National Challenge says the off-farm liquid organic residuals it collects are an excellent feedstock for anaerobic digesters and should generate significantly more biogas than any on-farm feedstock.

“Now that the regulatory hurdles have been cleared, we will work with other farms and AD [anaerobic digester] developers to maximize the value of the organic residual feedstock we manage,” said Buehler.
