February 25th 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 135 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 many of the largest RNG production facilities in the world.
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!
Global sustainable energy producer EDL and key project stakeholders bp, Consumers Energy and Granger Waste Services welcomed the start of operations at the Wood Road landfill gas to RNG facility, the first of its kind in Lansing, Michigan. The facility will extract and convert about 19,000 tons of methane from landfill gas per year from Granger Waste Services’ Wood Street Landfill into approximately 870,000 mmBtu of pipeline quality RNG annually. The RNG produced at the facility will be added to Consumers Energy’s existing pipeline network for delivery to end users. A portion will be taken by bp to supply natural gas-powered vehicles across the United States. The RNG will also be delivered for residential, commercial, and industrial use in North America.
The Grand Rapids City Commission approved an agreement between the city and the Interurban Transit Partnership (The Rapid) for the purchase of CNG, which will see the city fill its CNG fleet of vehicles at The Rapid’s recently completed CNG bus fueling facility. The fuel being dispensed from this location represents a three-way partnership between The Rapid, the city and DTE Energy (DTE). The city will pump pipeline grade RNG, in the form of CNG, from the Environmental Services Department’s biodigester into DTE’s pipeline, which will transport the RNG to The Rapid’s fueling facility. The Rapid’s fleet currently consists of 161 buses, 98 of which will run on RNG. Diesel buses will continue to be retired and replaced by RNG vehicles.
SoCalGas has revealed that 14 billion cubic feet of RNG produced from organic waste was distributed via its pipeline system in 2021. This amount of RNG is equivalent to removing 166,896 cars from roads annually and is 2 billion cubic feet more than was distributed by SoCalGas in 2020. The gas utility completed five RNG interconnection projects last year located throughout its service territory. In total, nine RNG projects are connected to SoCalGas’s natural gas distribution system. RNG production and use is growing in California and across the US. There are currently more than 245 operational RNG facilities in the US, with another 105 under construction and 118 planned. Over the last five years, RNG use as a transport fuel has increased by 291%, displacing close to 7.5 million tons of CO2e.
