IN THE NEWS
Greenlane (TSX:GRN) is a pioneer in the rapidly emerging renewable natural gas (RNG) industry. 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 over 35 years of industry experience are fierce competitive advantages.
Today, we are a trusted partner globally and are ranked number one in installed capacity, having sold over 140 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.

Spain plans to double its 2030 targets for biogas and green hydrogen production according to a draft of the energy ministry's updated climate strategy. The new plan increases the Spanish government's energy and climate ambitions across the board, setting higher goals for solar and wind power, among others. The revised plan sets a 2030 target of 11 gigawatts (GW) of electrolysers, up from a previous target of 4 GW and also plans to double the target for biogas production to 20 terawatt hours (TWh). By 2030, Madrid wants to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 32% from the level in 1990. The previous target was 23%.
In B.C., the Semiahmoo RNG project has moved into the closing phase on the development of a full-scale anaerobic digestion facility on Semiahmoo Reserve Lands thanks to funding from Natural Resources Canada. The project will process organic waste from household, multi-family as well as businesses in the surrounding area, and generate RNG, a carbon-negative energy source that can directly displace fossil fuels for customers who receive RNG via FortisBC’s existing distribution network. The facility will be jointly owned by Semiahmoo First Nation’s economic arm, SE-MI-AH-MU LP, and Andion North America, and is the first major economic development project on the reserve.
Viridi, a leading RNG platform, has partnered with American Organic Energy (AOE) to develop one of the largest food waste-to-RNG projects in the US. The project is expected to convert 210,000 tons of waste per year, which is equivalent to the entire annual food waste of Dallas, Texas, into clean energy and agriculture products. Located in Yaphank, NY, the AOE facility represents a historic step toward circularity in waste disposal, housing the first anaerobic digester to process food waste in the New York City metropolitan area, according to Viridi. The project will divert food waste from landfills located up to 300 miles away and transform it into RNG, via anaerobic digestion, and into other renewable products, such as fertiliser. The project expects to generate emissions reductions equivalent to nearly 100,000 tons of CO2 per year and is projected to produce renewable fuels equivalent to 10 million gallons of gasoline annually.
