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.

Threemile Canyon Farms, the largest dairy in Oregon, provided sustainability advice to Wisconsin dairy farmers, which included the benefits of RNG. The 33,000-head dairy operation relies on a “closed loop” system that continuously recycles products, byproducts and resources. Anaerobic digesters, built in 2012, produce biogas from the manure stream, which is then upgraded into pipeline-spec RNG which the dairy uses for internal energy as well as selling to external customers.
The European gas industry is pressing EU leadership for binding GHG emissions intensity reduction and renewable natural gas targets, calling for a 20% reduction in GHG emissions and an 11% RNG market share by 2030. Established targets will provide incentives for the uptake of RNG across the EU and contribute to the stated goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2050.
Piedmont Natural Gas, a subsidiary of energy giant Duke Energy, has made RNG available at one of its CNG fueling stations in Nashville. Piedmont operates a network of 11 publicly accessible CNG fueling stations in the Carolinas and Tennessee, which service both commercial fleets and personal vehicles. Industrial customers, including refuse, transit, construction, and over-the-road fleets, can now choose RNG to fuel CNG vehicles as they strive to meet sustainability goals and reduce GHG emissions.
Trudeau’s Liberal government announced its plan to spend $10 billion on infrastructure initiatives, including clean energy, to boost growth and create one million jobs in the aftermath of the pandemic. The plan has five elements, including $2.5 billion targeted for clean power and $1.5 billion for the acceleration of zero-emission public transportation buses, which RNG can play an integral part in today.
