September 4th 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!
The California Environmental Protection Agency published a new report, in which it concludes that at least half of the food waste bound for landfills in the state could be processed at the state’s wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) and turned into bioenergy. Many of the state’s 225 WWTPs have the anaerobic digestion capacity to accommodate the diverted food waste in “co-digestion” with the wastewater streams, leading to three key environmental benefits: reduction of organic wastes from landfills, cutting GHG emissions, and cleaning wastewater. The report suggests that maximizing the co-digestion capacity could reduce annual statewide GHG emissions by as much as 2.4 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.
In New York, the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) has committed to using RNG as a primary fuel for 800 of its transit buses, signing a multi-year agreement for an estimated 25 million gallons of RNG. The MTA estimates that it will reduce GHG emissions by over 25,000 tonnes annually, equivalent to removing roughly 5,500 cars from the roads.
And in Alberta, a new clean energy startup has successfully demonstrated how its technology can convert all types of wood waste into RNG, with funding help from the province and industry. The demonstration project can process 100 kilograms of wood waste into one gigajoule of RNG per day, with plans to scale up the demonstration to process two tonnes of wood waster per day to produce 20 gigajoules of RNG.
