June 11th 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 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 state of New South Wales (NSW) in Australia is launching the country’s first Renewable Gas Certification Pilot which will verify and accredit renewable gases such as biomethane and hydrogen. The NSW government-managed renewable energy accreditor firm Green Power will deliver the pilot over a two-year time frame and will work toward the development of a permanent certification scheme for renewable gases. It is anticipated that the certification scheme will boost industry investment in biomethane and hydrogen and make them available to Australian homes and businesses. The first application of the pilot will be to the biomethane-to-grid project at Sydney Water’s Malabar Wastewater Treatment Plant.
A new cheese factory in Wales, the Mona Island Dairy Factory, will become the most sustainable cheese production facility in Europe as it will run solely on renewable electricity. The 25,000 square-foot facility will produce 7,000 tons of cheese a year, and biodegradable wastes produced at the site, such as milk residue, will be processed at the nearby Mona Biogas plant, producing biogas that will be used to generate electricity for the facility. In addition, all the process water will be recovered from the whey concentration, minimising the intake of potable water.
Williams, one of the largest natural gas pipeline systems in the United States with over 30,000 miles of pipe, is joining forces with Microsoft to explore new ways to transform its energy infrastructure network as it pursues a net-zero emissions ambition. Williams is targeting net-zero emissions by 2050, with a 56% absolute reduction in emissions by 2030. Part of Williams’ strategy is to expand methane reduction opportunities, which includes RNG. Williams currently delivers RNG by partnering with energy companies in several states to transport RNG produced from captured methane at landfills and dairy farms.
The Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA), a U.K. industry association, published a report, “Transport: Biomethane Fuelling a Transport Revolution”, which focuses on biomethane and the role it can play in helping to immediately decarbonise the transport sector while saving fleet operators money. The U.K.’s transport sector is now the greatest emitter of GHGs, with a fifth of these emissions originating from heavy vehicles, such as trucks and buses. Fleet operators are increasingly replacing their diesel vehicles with gas-fuelled ones, and the report concludes with a series of case studies highlighting prominent companies that are already making the switch, revealing how and why they are transitioning to biomethane vehicles.
