Construction underway at Vancouver Landfill for RNG facility

FortisBC Energy Inc. (FortisBC) and the City of Vancouver (the City) are working together on the construction of an RNG facility at the City’s landfill in Delta, B.C. The project is an example of how FortisBC is working with municipalities to develop more local renewable and low-carbon gases to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to provide safe, affordable and reliable energy solutions for B.C. families and businesses.

Local RNG project will be the largest in British Columbia

“This is our largest RNG project to date and the RNG generated from the landfill will be delivered into the local gas distribution system as a low-carbon energy source,” said Roger Dall’Antonia, president and CEO of FortisBC.

The City uses RNG in its buildings, fleet and Neighbourhood Energy Utility, as a tool to reduce its own carbon emissions. The reduction in emissions as a result of this project is expected to be equivalent to up to 12,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to taking 2,600 cars off the road each year. Construction and commissioning of the RNG facility may take approximately 12 to 15 months to complete.

Japanese firm aims to create biomethane-based rocket fuel

Image one

Japanese chemical manufacturing company Air Water has been working on creating liquid biomethane from cow waste to be used as rocket fuel, potentially providing a solution for dairy farmers grappling with disposal challenges. Air Water said it would begin conducting trials this autumn, with the fuel to be loaded on a rocket created by space startup firm Interstellar Technologies Inc., which is based in Japan's northernmost island of Hokkaido. Rockets require liquid fuel to generate enough power to blast off into space. While high-purity methane is usually manufactured using liquid natural gas, the company has been working on creating methane of a similar quality through waste-sourced biogas.

DHL Supply Chain invests €80m in biomethane production facility

DHL Supply Chain has announced plans to begin operating biomethane-fuelled trucks with an investment worth €80 million into a dedicated biomethane production facility in Cork, Ireland, run by Stream BioEnergy. The new facility is expected to provide fuel for up to 150 trucks, resulting in an estimated annual carbon reduction of 15,000 tonnes, the equivalent of more than 38 million miles driven by an average petrol-powered passenger vehicle. DHL has joined forces with Tesco Ireland, and once the new facility is fully functioning, DHL will operate 92 locally fuelled biomethane trucks across Tesco's country-wide network.

ACCELERATING THE ENERGY TRANSITION

Greenlane (TSX:GRN) is driving change: accelerating the energy transition to a net-zero emissions economy. We are cleaning up two of the largest and most difficult to decarbonize sectors of the global energy system: the natural gas grid and commercial transportation.

As a pioneer and leading specialist in biogas upgrading, we have been actively contributing to the decarbonization of our planet for over 35 years. The systems we provide transform biogas generated from organic waste into high-value grid-ready renewable natural gas (“RNG”).

Our systems produce clean, low-carbon and carbon-negative RNG from organic waste sources including agriculture (such as dairy and hog manure), water resource recovery facilities, food waste, landfills, and sugar mills. Greenlane is the only biogas upgrading company offering and actively deploying the three main upgrading technologies: waterwash, pressure swing adsorption, and membrane separation, plus proprietary biogas desulfurization technology. Greenlane has delivered over 140 biogas upgrading systems into 19 countries, including some of the largest RNG production facilities in the world.
