June 12th 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 100+ biogas upgrading installations 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!
Maryam Brown, SoCalGas’ President, was featured in an interview discussing California’s ambitious climate goals and the critical role that RNG is anticipated to play. With the state targeting carbon neutrality by 2045, Ms. Brown highlighted a recent independent research study by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory that indicated current levels of CO2 emissions must be reduced by 125 million tons per year, 80 percent of which can be accomplished by capturing methane from organic waste and injecting into the pipeline system for customer use.
In Ireland, the supermarket giant Tesco will soon become the first retailer in the country to purchase RNG produced from its surplus food to power its stores. The renewable natural gas initiative, facilitated by Gas Networks Ireland, will see enough RNG generated from its excess food to provide energy to six of its stores as the company targets the goal of becoming a zero-carbon retailer by 2050.
Thousands of organizations and businesses in Australia have petitioned the country’s government to recognize the important role that biogas can play in moving the country along the path of decarbonization. This marks the first time that businesses have called on the government to recognize the full potential of RNG, with the goal of creating policy initiatives to unlock investment from both government and private sources to grow the biomethane market across the country.
Bioenergy Europe, in collaboration with the European Biogas Association, has released the second chapter of its Statistical Report 2020, which focuses on biogas consumption and production across the EU. While the report found that biogas and the production of RNG is a stable, mature technology, biogas has enormous potential and a key role to play in helping Europe make the transition to clean energy and carbon neutrality by 2050.
