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!
Biogas and biomethane are generated from different types of organic residues, turning waste into a valuable resource. A recent study shows that the increasing amount of compostable bioplastics in waste can be collected and processed with no ecological risk to produce biogas, supporting the development of renewable energy in Europe. EU countries are required to reuse and recycle at least 55% of their municipal waste by 2025, 60% by 2030 and 65% by 2035. The biogas sector is already contributing to reach this target by producing renewable energy from collected local bio-waste. According to the EBA Statistical Report 2022, organic municipal solid waste is the second biggest source of biomethane production in Europe. Biodegradable bioplastics could represent 8 – 10% of organic municipal solid waste in the coming years, and the degradation of bioplastics via anaerobic digestion can contribute to the energy recovery of waste by producing renewable energy.
Clean Energy Fuels has been awarded a contract by the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) to provide an expected 86 million gallons of RNG to operate its bus fleet. MTS serves the San Diego metropolitan area with a fleet of 764 buses, of which 595 run on RNG. By operating on RNG instead of diesel, it is anticipated that the fleet will reduce 73,972 metric tons of carbon dioxide—the equivalent of planting 1.2 million trees, taking 15, 939 gasoline cars off the road, or recycling 25,596 tons of landfill waste per year.
