December 10th 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 a 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 sold more than 125 biogas upgrading systems into 19 countries and counting. We’ve learned a lot along the way. First to market in 12 of the 19 countries where our systems have been sold, 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 city of Tallahassee, FL, has committed to transitioning to renewable energy by 2050, and as part of its Clean Energy Plan it is actively exploring adding RNG to its energy mix. Initial findings from a third-party consultant are that there are abundant domestically available resources to stream RNG into the city’s existing natural gas infrastructure; several farms maintaining confined animal feeding operations are located within 75 miles of Tallahassee. Although the study won’t be complete until mid 2022, preliminary information is that there are significant possibilities for the city to fully operate its natural gas system with RNG.
In France, a cloud computing company and a renewable energy start-up are planning to commission a data center powered exclusively by renewable energy from recycling agricultural biowaste in France. The project is a first in the data center world, which is constantly seeking long-term renewable, low-carbon, and secure energy solutions. The data center is planning to start operation in 2022 and will be powered with biogas generated from agricultural waste, providing a continuous, non-intermittent, and manageable energy source critical for data center operations.
South Dakota utility NorthWestern Energy received approval from state regulators to build the state’s first pipeline that will carry RNG. NorthWestern is planning an eight-mile pipeline to reach a dairy farm that will use manure feedstock to generate clean RNG for injection into the utility’s natural gas grid, a first for South Dakota.
A new project producing biogas from sewage discharged by cargo ships is underway in Finland. The Baltic Sea Action Group (BSAG) is collaborating with multiple companies, including Gasum, on the new Ship/t Waste Action project. The initiative turns sewage into biogas that will be used as fuel by the heavy-duty transport sector.
