Greenlane lands international biogas contracts

Vancouver-based Greenlane Renewables Inc. has signed two new biogas upgrading system supply contracts worth $7.1 million.

Its wholly owned subsidiary Greenlane Biogas North America Ltd. will fulfill separate renewable natural gas (RNG) projects in the United States and Brazil.

Dairy RNG project

The U.S. project is for the supply of a biogas upgrading system for a dairy farm RNG project in Nebraska. Greenlane will supply its pressure swing adsorption (PSA) system for upgrading biogas generated from anaerobic digestion of dairy cow manure into carbon negative RNG suitable for injection into the local pipeline network.

“Dairy-derived RNG is highly carbon negative providing one of the most impactful ways to achieve deep decarbonization and reach net zero emissions targets,” said Brad Douville, president and CEO of Greenlane.

“For this reason, it continues to be one of the most dynamic and fastest growing segments of the market.”

Landfill gas to RNG

Greenlane has also won a contract for a landfill gas-to-RNG project in Brazil with one of the country’s largest landfill operators, Orizon Valorizacao de Residuos (Orizon). Orizon Valorizacao de Residuos is a Brazilian waste treatment and recovery company that offers waste management and processing, ranging from recycling to the generation of biogas and electricity.

Greenlane will supply its water wash system to upgrade the landfill gas to low carbon RNG.

“This new project for Greenlane marks the sixth system supply contract we have won in a country that we believe has significant upside potential for biogas upgrading, including landfill gas-to-RNG, sugarcane production waste and other types of upgrading projects,” said Douville.

“Although Brazil’s RNG industry is in the early stages of development, Greenlane has been an early mover and market share leader in the country, having sold 67% of the commercial scale biogas upgrading systems in the country.”
