The plan is to build biogas stations through-
out rural Ontario and create a steady fuel supply.
Faromor will design, construct and manage these
stations. In order to get the fuel from the farm to
consumers, it will act as the marketing wing for
the farms.
“Others can connect to a pipeline and have
natural gas fuels and benefit from those savings,
but we’re making the connection that landfill
sites and farming enterprises can market their
gas,” Blenkhorn says. “This is the first project
really of its kind in Ontario with the green con-
nection that we bring to the industry.”
A biofuel economy is dependent upon
vehicles that can process the gas. The Faromor
venture is calling for up to 100 large-engine
vehicles to be fueled at the station near
Woodstock. In particular, the company is manu-
facturing farm tractors with natural gas engines.
Blenkhorn adds that there is potential to fuel
municipal buses and set up a portable fueling
station system that could support the custom
farm operator involved with the project. “Canada
has been slow on the uptake primarily because
the conversion of the vehicle and or availability
of stations to fill up,” he says.
Although biofuel is a fledging industry in
Canada, Blenkhorn is certain that the company’s
expansion into the industry will be successful.
This confidence comes, not only from over three
decades of providing quality, in-demand natural
ventilation systems to the agricultural industry,
