In Québec, industry is responsible for almost one third of greenhouse gas emissions. One of Gaz Métro’s solutions for fighting climate change is to encourage the use of natural gas by Québec industries
. Those located in remote areas like Northern Québec and the Côte-Nord, which aren’t served by the gas network, can now look forward to a supply of LNG. When a plant uses natural gas instead of oil, it cuts its GHG emissions by up to 32%. And of note is that for many types of industrial processes, electricity cannot replace a thermal energy like oil or natural gas. This is why the possibility of using natural gas is a key factor in sustainable economic development.
