March 25th 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. 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 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 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!
Brazil’s government has announced measures to encourage the production and use of biomethane, including investments under Brazil’s Special Regime of Incentives for Infrastructure Development and creating the National Program for the Reduction of Methane Emissions, also known as Metano Zero, designed to support the generation and use of biomethane derived from urban and rural waste. The total investment expected is more than BRL 7 billion (€1.28 billion), generating at least 6,500 jobs in the construction and operation of the biomethane units. The goal is to build 25 new facilities across six states.
Biogas and RNG are proven climate solutions, with 279 projects across Canada already preventing more than 8 Mt of greenhouse gas emissions from reaching the atmosphere every year. But how much greater a role can biogas and RNG play in hitting Canada’s 2030 and 2050 climate targets? The Canadian Biogas Association’s (CBA) new report, “Hitting Canada’s Climate Targets with Biogas & RNG”, finds that biogas and RNG can deliver big GHG reductions: 26.7 Mt by 2030, 40.2 Mt by 2050, and delivering 55% of Canada’s methane pledge.
Managing manure is nothing new for dairy operators, and it has taken on greater urgency in the state of California in the past several years with passage of Senate Bill 1383, legislation in 2016 aimed at curbing pollution from methane. As a result, the California Air Resources Board implemented strategies to reduce emissions from dairy manure by 40% by 2030. To accomplish this, the state has incentivized the process of capturing manure's release of methane with competitive grants through its dairy digester research effort and its Alternative Manure Management Program. These efforts recently gained traction as important steps in battling climate change and providing business opportunities for dairy operators, including the generation of RNG from anaerobic digestion of manure for direct injection into local gas pipeline grids.
