April 16th Issue of Greenlane Digest
IN THE NEWS
Greenlane (TSX:GRN) is a pioneer in the rapidly emerging renewable natural gas (RNG) market. We work with waste producers, gas utilities, and project developers to turn low-value biogas into a valuable low-carbon and carbon-negative clean energy resource.
Greenlane is a pure play in the RNG space, offering multiple core biogas upgrading technologies, in use and proven in the industry today. Biogas upgrading sales are forecasted by industry to grow at minimum 30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next five years in North America and Europe. Our demonstrated leadership in biogas upgrading, scope and breadth of product offerings, and 30+ years’ industry experience are fierce competitive advantages.
Today, we are a trusted partner globally and are ranked number one in installed capacity, having delivered more than 110 biogas upgrading systems in 18 countries and counting. We’ve learned a lot along the way. First to market in 11 of the 18 countries where our systems operate, we’re also proud to have supplied the systems for the largest RNG production facilities in North America and Europe, respectively.
Through the Greenlane Digest, our goal is to provide weekly updates and the latest articles on the RNG industry. Make sure you forward our newsletter to your contacts!
A new research paper from the European Biogas Association (EBA) provides a comprehensive analysis of the potential of biogas production from industrial wastewater to reduce methane emissions. The results show that biogas has a high potential to mitigate the methane emissions from industrial wastewater while providing a large potential source of renewable energy. The EBA estimates that biogas production through anaerobic digestion of wastewater can decrease current electricity consumption by 75% while preventing methane emissions from the wastewater escaping into the atmosphere.
A major shipping and logistics company is launching a low-carbon shipping option utilizing biomethane. CMA CGM Group is moving forward with investment in biomethane production facilities and studying the viability of liquefaction processes so that the biomethane can be used as a shipping fuel. The biomethane, which will be European-sourced from organic and plant waste, coupled with the company’s dual-fuel gas-power technology, can reduce GHG emissions at the ship level (tank-to-wake basis) of up to 88 percent.
New data from Natural Gas Vehicles for America (NGVAmerica) and the Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas (RNG Coalition) show that 53 percent of all on-road fuel used in natural gas vehicles in 2020 was RNG. RNG use as a transportation fuel grew 25 percent over 2019 volumes and has increased just under 270 percent over the last five years. The RNG used as a motor fuel in 2020 displaced 3.5 million tons of CO2 equivalent, which equates to the removal of GHG emissions from 8.8 billion miles driven by the average passenger car.
