December 11th Issue of Greenlane Digest
IN THE NEWS
Greenlane (TSXV: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 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!
Greenlane’s President and CEO, Brad Douville, was featured in an interview with BNN Bloomberg to discuss Greenlane’s business of generating renewable natural gas from landfills, wastewater, dairy farms and food waste. Please visit the link above for the full video.
In California, the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts have launched a purification system to upgrade the biogas produced from the decomposition of food waste into RNG and use it as a transportation fuel. The wastewater treatment plant in Carson processes the food waste slurry transported by the Sanitation Districts, with the biogas generated from the waste stream used to help power the treatment plant and receive further upgrading to produce fuel-grade RNG. The upgrading system can produce the equivalent of 2,000 gallons of petrol per day.
A large-scale renewable energy park in Scotland, which will incorporate biomass and anaerobic digestion facilities, is in the planning stages. The energy park, called the Renewable Energy Village, is designed to deliver 150 to 200 MW of green energy to supply the Scottish power grid, with the capacity to power tens of thousands of homes. The goal is to position Scotland and the UK as a world leader in energy transition projects.
In Colorado, lawmakers are hoping to revisit a bill that would have mandated large utilities to incorporate a certain percentage of their energy from RNG. Called the Adopt Renewable Natural Gas Standard, the bill passed the Colorado state Senate earlier in the year but was derailed in the House due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If passed, the bill would require utilities (Xcel Energy being the largest in Colorado) to use 5% RNG by 2025, 10% by 2030, and 15% by 2035. Supporters of the bill believe it will play an important role in helping the state achieve its 100% renewable electricity by 2040 goal.
Global supermajor Chevron appears to be promoting a low carbon future, as the company’s CEO, Mike Wirth, says Chevron is embracing and investing in a lower carbon energy system for the future while continuing to focus on shareholder returns. While he discussed several technologies, Mr. Wirth highlighted Chevron’s participation in dairy farm biogas projects as a means to reduce methane emissions while creating a saleable renewable product – RNG.
