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 issued the following news release this week:

Greenlane announces appointments of Executive Vice Chair and President and Chief Executive Officer as part of strategic growth plan

Greenlane announced the appointment of Brad Douville, current Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), to the newly created role of Vice Chair of the Board of Directors, and a continuing full time executive role as “Executive Vice Chair” with a mandate to support management in advancing key strategic initiatives, and the appointment of Ian Kane as President and CEO to lead the Company’s profitable execution of its new strategic plan. Both appointments will be effective August 10, 2023. “Greenlane has grown rapidly over the past four years, and we are now resetting our strategic plan for the next stage of growth,” said Brad Douville, CEO of Greenlane.

Our demonstrated leadership in biogas upgrading, scope and breadth of product offerings, and over 35 years of industry experience are fierce competitive advantages.

Brightmark RNG Holdings LLC, a joint venture between Chevron U.S.A. Inc., a subsidiary of Chevron Corporation, and Brightmark Fund Holdings LLC, a subsidiary of Brightmark LLC, is positioned to expand RNG production with five new anaerobic digestion dairy farm projects in western Michigan, designed to convert animal waste to renewable fuels. The Castor Project, which processes manure from one large digester, is Brightmark and Chevron’s second-largest RNG project. Other Michigan projects in the joint venture include Meadow Rock, Red Arrow, Willow Point, and SunRyz. The net reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from the manure processed at the anaerobic digestion dairy farm projects in Michigan is equivalent to planting over 179,000 acres of forest each year. Additionally, these projects are expected to reduce land application of raw manure and improve odor, water quality, and nutrient management practices at farms.

The biogas industry has set aside €18 billion up to 2030 to ensure the scale-up of biomethane production and support both Europe's energy security and climate mitigation ambitions, according to the European Biogas Association (EBA). In its inaugural “Investment Outlook on Biomethane”, the EBA said the investments make additional whole-system benefits available to society, worth up to €7.9 billion per year. Following the announcement of the REPowerEU target one year ago, the EBA estimated that reaching 35 bcm of sustainable biomethane production will require an investment effort of €83 billion by 2030 depending on plant size, location and type of sustainable feedstock. The first edition of the Investment Outlook on Biomethane shows these efforts are taking shape: €4.1 billion will be invested in the coming 2 years, €12.4 billion by 2030 and €1 extra billion has been allocated with no specific timeframe. Investments are mostly located in France (€1.4 billion) and Italy (€1.1 billion) thanks to favourable conditions in those Member States, followed by the Netherlands (€951 million), Spain (€948 million), Germany (€658 million), Sweden (€635 million) and Poland (€429 million).
