September 24th 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 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 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!
GLS, one of Italy’s main express couriers, will add 120 new LNG and bio-LNG powered vehicles to its fleet. Switching to fossil methane will result in a reduction of CO2 amounting to 7,300 tonnes, the equivalent to replacing 745 diesel vehicles or planting 146,000 trees. However, switching to biomethane has a much greater impact, achieving a CO2 reduction of 78,000 tonnes, the equivalent of removing 8,000 diesel vehicles from the roads or planting 1.5 million trees.
Several dairy farm digester projects to produce RNG from multiple farms in South Dakota have been announced. The projects are expected to produce 650 million cubic feet of RNG annually when complete and online by the end of 2024, with the RNG to be delivered to local natural gas pipelines serving the regional distribution system.
Ireland’s strategic national gas and water infrastructure services provider, Ervia, believes renewable gases can and should play a crucial role in helping the country achieve its net-zero emissions ambitions. Gas Networks Ireland (GNI), a subsidiary of Ervia, operates Ireland’s gas distribution network and is focused on replacing fossil natural gas with renewable gases, such as biomethane and hydrogen, to substantially reduce the country’s carbon emissions while complementing intermittent renewable electricity and ensuring a secure energy supply.
In a letter to Alok Sharma, President of the UN Conference of Parties on Climate Change (COP26), which the UK will be hosting in November, a consortium of 19 industry organizations, led by the UK Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA), urges the minister to become an advocate for improving waste management in the UK in the fight against climate change. This would be achieved by simply ensuring that all organic wastes are captured and diverted to anaerobic digesters. According to the ADBA, there are over 140 million tonnes of readily available organic wastes still being left undigested in the UK every year, creating harmful GHG emissions that instead could be captured and transformed into valuable bioresources, including biomethane, through anaerobic digestion.
