One person's trash is another's treasure

Since the early 2000s, EBI has been interested in recovering biomethane from landfills. After a research and development phase that coincided with a hike in the price of diesel in 2008, EBI began the process of renewing its fleet of vehicles in order to switch to compressed natural gas (CNG).

It could thus recuperate biomethane from the decomposition of certain material it transported and disposed of. Once treated, this biomethane becomes natural gas. The result is a renewable fuel that produces less greenhouse gas emissions and generates savings of 40% compared to diesel.
