April 1st 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!
The World Biogas Association (WBA) published a new report highlighting how management of organic wastes could deliver a meaningful reduction in global GHG emissions. The Biogas: Pathways to 2030 report explores how appropriate management of all organic wastes through anaerobic digestion (AD) and the production of biogas and other bioproducts could enable a 10% reduction in global emissions by 2030. Currently only 2% of the world’s organic wastes are effectively treated and recycled.
The Future Role of Gas in Transport, published through a project overseen by U.K. and Ireland gas network operators, highlights the potential of biogas in decarbonizing heavy goods transport. The report sets out a clear pathway showing how the U.K.’s heavy goods transportation sector, which generates approximately 20 million tonnes of CO2 annually, could reduce emissions by 38% by 2030 by switching to biomethane, bio-CNG, and hydrogen.
In Michigan, natural gas utility Consumers Energy is reviewing the potential for RNG to play a key role in helping the utility reach its net-zero methane emissions goal by 2030 for its natural gas distribution system. In February, a new state bill was introduced that directs Michigan state officials to study RNG’s potential across the state to help control GHG emissions and provide farmers with additional revenue streams. Currently, Detroit-based utility DTE Energy is the only Michigan utility that offers a program for customers to voluntarily purchase RNG.
Researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology are exploring technology that would allow biogas to be pumped directly into vehicles. The technology would allow a driver to choose between running a natural gas engine on low-grade RNG or a high-grade blend of RNG and renewable hydrogen (RH2), which is also stored in the tank.
