January 13th Issue of Greenlane Digest
IN THE NEWS
Greenlane (TSX:GRN) is a pioneer in the rapidly emerging renewable natural gas (RNG) industry. 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. As a leading global provider of biogas upgrading systems, we are helping to clean up two of the largest and most difficult-to-decarbonize sectors of the global energy system: the natural gas grid and the commercial transportation sector.
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 over 30 years of 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!
Acorn Bioenergy has submitted a planning application to The Highland Council in Scotland for the first of its proposed Scottish biogas plants, as it plans to utilise crop and by-product waste from local farms and distilleries for feedstock, with plans to invest up to €63.1M in the area. The company has approval to inject 5,000 m3 of biomethane into the nation's gas grid to heat homes and fuel heavy goods vehicles. Acorn plans to develop anaerobic digestion plants in the Highlands, Moray and Aberdeenshire regions with a total investment in Scotland over the next two years of around €120M.
OPAL Fuels, a vertically integrated producer and distributor of RNG, announced Florida’s first landfill gas to RNG facility. Located in Raiford, Florida, the facility captures naturally occurring biogas from the decomposition of organic material at the landfill and upgrades it into RNG. The RNG will be used to feed OPAL Fuels transportation customers at the company’s fueling stations via the Peoples Gas distribution system. Peoples Gas System is Florida’s largest natural gas distribution utility, serving more than 445,000 homes and businesses across the state. The RNG facility has a nameplate capacity of 2,500 standard cubic feet per minute (SCFM) of landfill gas, which when processed would result in the production of approximately 5 million gasoline gallon equivalents (GGE) per year of RNG. This RNG, when used as transportation fuel to displace diesel, will avoid GHG emissions equivalent to achieving zero Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions from more than 380 heavy-duty trucks.
TotalEnergies has started up its 18th biogas production unit in France, which will be the largest in the country with a maximum capacity of 160 gigawatt-hours (GWh). This new project, supplied with organic waste, has started to inject its first cubic metres of biomethane into the natural gas transmission network. It will produce 69 GWh in 2023, then gradually ramp up to meet rapidly growing biogas demand. The unit will process 220,000 tons of organic waste into 200,000 tons per year of digestate, a natural fertiliser, and 160 GWh of biomethane, equivalent to the average annual consumption of 32,000 inhabitants. This project will increase TotalEnergies’ biogas production capacity to 700 GWh as it grows toward its objective of reaching 20 TWh by 2030.
