WHY RENEWABLE NATURAL GAS?
Our global energy system utilizes immense amounts of natural resources and is a major contributor to global warming. Renewable Natural Gas (RNG), also known as biomethane, can help.
For residential, commercial, and industrial applications, energy is delivered in the form of either electricity or natural gas. The global natural gas grid is larger than the electricity grid*.
Gasoline and diesel dominate global transportation. Natural gas is the most popular alternative, especially for displacing diesel in heavy duty applications.
RNG can be blended with or entirely substituted for the fossil natural gases used in transportation and pipeline distribution, two very large and difficult to decarbonize sectors of the global economy.
RNG adds no new carbon to the atmosphere. It is produced from organic waste sources including landfills, wastewater treatment plants, dairy farms, and food waste.
*In the U.S. it is 1.25 times larger, in Canada it is 2 times larger, and in the U.K. it is 4 times larger.
WHAT IS BIOGAS UPGRADING?
Biogas is produced from the anaerobic decomposition of organic matter. It is composed mainly of equal parts of both carbon dioxide and biomethane.
Biogas upgrading equipment cleanses impurities and extracts the carbon dioxide to produce high-purity biomethane suitable for injection into the natural gas grid and for direct use as vehicle fuel.
We are an established global leader in upgrading low energy biogas to pipeline and vehicle grade biomethane or renewable natural gas.
With over 100 biogas upgrading units in 18 countries, we have supplied more biogas upgrader systems than any other company.
Greenlane is the only biogas upgrading company offering three main technologies; water wash, pressure swing adsorption, and membrane separation.
We have over 30 years of industry experience and patented proprietary technology to meet the exact needs of your project.
Greenlane is inspired by a commitment to helping waste producers improve their environmental impact, green credentials, and bottom line.
