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.

The Toronto Zoo announced that its biogas plant is now operational, transforming manure and food waste into bioenergy and fertilizer. Feedstock for the plant’s anaerobic digester will consist of 2,000 tonnes of zoo manure and 15,000 tonnes of food waste annually. The biogas plant produces electricity, with a capacity of 500 kW, which is fed into Ontario’s electricity grid. The plant will provide 10% of its profits through its 20-year agreement with Ontario to the zoo.
According to new data from the California Air Resources Board (CARB), vehicles in California running on RNG removed more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than they emitted for the first time last year as the carbon intensity (CI) of the fuel continues to drop. The use of RNG in fleets of trucks, buses and other vehicles grew 25% from 2019 to 2020 and is up more than 170% in the past five years, according to the data. Meanwhile, the CI of compressed natural gas derived from renewable sources (bio-CNG) is dropping as the fuel is increasingly derived from highly carbon negative agricultural waste such as cow manure.
The Municipal Transport Company of Madrid (EMT) recently announced an order for 520 buses that can run on compressed RNG. Deployment of the buses, which will be supplied by Solaris, Mercedes-Benz, and Scania, will begin this year. EMT has committed to eliminate the presence of diesel-powered buses in its fleet by 2023 and reach the goal of a 100% zero-emission fleet within the framework of Madrid’s 360 Environmental Sustainability Strategy.
