Candadian Biogas Association

The Candadian Biogas Association is a member driven association promoting the development of biogas which represents all aspects of the biogas sector. The Biogas Association was formerly known as the Agrienergy Producers’ Association of Ontario (APAO). APAO was founded as a not for profit, member driven organization that was incorporated in early 2008. The founders consisted of farmers who had an interest in supporting and promoting the development of Ontario’s agriculture-based renewable energy sector, specifically farm-based biogas systems.
