August 21st 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!
In the UK, renewable natural gas produced from cow manure has been injected into the country’s natural gas grid for the first time. Anaerobic digestion of cow manure mixed with straw produces biomethane which in July was injected into the Gas National Transmission System, which showcases the potential for RNG production from agricultural feedstocks and the critical role the process could play in helping Britain achieve net zero GHG emission status by 2050.
The British Columbia Utilities Commission has approved FortisBC’s request to purchase RNG from outside of the province, marking the first interprovincial purchase of RNG in Canada by a natural gas utility. FortisBC is committed to advancing RNG projects in BC while evaluating projects outside of its home province as RNG is an essential component of the utility’s “30BY30” target – a 30% reduction in its customers’ GHG emissions by 2030.
Craig Jamieson is a man on a mission – to develop a major bioeconomy in the rice growing regions of the world, with an approach that is centered on anaerobic digestion. Rice is a staple food for over the half the world’s population and is the third largest farmed crop globally. With that comes a cultivation process that is responsible for nearly half of all carbon emissions from global agriculture, with current methods of production emitting more GHGs than the global aviation industry. Mr. Jamieson’s vision is to not only reduce the GHG emissions from burning the rice straw but turning it into the starting point of a new bioeconomy through anaerobic digestion of the straw and generation of biogas.
Kroger, one of the largest grocers in the United States, released its 2020 ESG report in which it outlined its new stakeholder priorities and operational improvements, in which it highlighted an improvement of food waste diversion from landfills by 5 percent over 2019 levels. Since 2017, the company has improved its waste diversion from landfills by 18%, with anaerobic digestion (and subsequent production of biogas) of the waste playing a key role. The firm’s overall goal is to achieve zero food waste by 2025.
