Ground breaking for ZooShare: North America’s first zoo-biogas plant
During the event, those in attendance heard speakers that included Bullfrog Power’s CEO, Ron Seftel, as well as Ontario’s Minister of Energy, Bob Chiarelli, and the Chair of the Toronto Zoo board, Councilor Raymond Cho.
Bullfrog Power has been a long time supporter of ZooShare’s project. And, as the project’s official Education Sponsor, Bullfrog Power has helped fund educational outreach programs such as a workshop for Grade 7 students that teach children about the science behind the biogas project.
When completed, the project will recycle manure from the Toronto Zoo and food waste from local grocery stores into renewable power.
Here are a couple of photos from the event:
