(TSX: TFI), a North American leader in the transportation and logistics industry, today announced that its Environmental Services division has formed a partnership with Quebec-based Terreau Biogaz Inc. to convert methane to electricity from its Granby and Sainte-Cécile-de-Milton, Quebec landfill sites. The electricity has been placed on the Hydro-Québec grid as of June 29th. In its first year, the project will produce one megawatt of power, roughly enough electricity to power about 450 homes. That will double to two megawatts next year and at its peak the facility will generate three megawatts. The $10 million investment in the project, will allow for the sale of electricity to Hydro Québec for a 24 year period.
