Partner: ZooShare Renewable Energy Co-operative

From zoo poo to poo power—that’s the goal of ZooShare, an Ontario co-op that worked with the Toronto Zoo to launch North America’s first zoo-based biogas project. The 500 kW facility recycles manure from the zoo and food waste from local grocery stores into renewable energy.
