In 2005, the Quebec government adopted a regulation aimed to minimize the impact of biogas from landfills. The Regulation is in respect to landfills and incineration of residual materials, particularly those that bury more than 50,000 tons of waste per year, to capture the biogas ideally enhance or eliminate them.

The Quebec government created the Biogas Program to financially support projects to capture or dispose of biogas from landfill sites not covered by the requirements for capture and removal provided for in the Regulations concerning landfills and incineration of residual materials. The program also targets the development projects of biogas to replace or avoid the use of an energy sources that emit greenhouse gas emissions.
