Greenlane Renewables secures CA$2.7 million biogas upgrading contract in OR

Canada-headed biogas upgrading technology supplier Greenlane Renewables Inc, has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Greenlane Biogas North America Ltd., has secured a new CA$3.4 million biogas upgrading contract with the Metropolitan Wastewater Management Commission (MWMC) in Lane County, Oregon in the United States (US).

Greenlane Renewables subsidiary Greenlane Biogas North America has secured a new CA$3.4 million biogas upgrading contract with the Metropolitan Wastewater Management Commission (MWMC) in Lane County, Oregon in the United States (US). Greenlane will provide its pressure swing adsorption (PSA) solution for the project. Pictured above such is a Greenlane installation in Perris, California commissioned for pipeline injection in 2018 with a total capacity of 2 000 Nm3/hr). The project treats biogas from municipal organic waste and feeds the Rule-30 pipeline-quality renewable natural gas (RNG) into SoCalGas’s pipelines. This project uses GRN’s Totara system in combination with PSA and was the first RNG produced within California to be introduced into SoCalGas’ pipeline system (photo courtesy Greenlane Renewables).

According to a statement, Greenlane will provide its pressure swing adsorption (PSA) solution for the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) that serves the Eugene – Springfield metropolitan area in Lane County, Oregon. Work will begin immediately upon receipt of a notice to proceed, with delivery expected to occur within six months of commencement of work.

The facility is expected to produce approximately 120,000 gigajoules (GJ) (or 114,000 million British Thermal Units (MMBTU)) annually of renewable natural gas (RNG) for injection into the gas distribution network owned and operated by NW Natural, the local gas utility.

50 percent of Oregon’s RNG projects

The MWMC’s RNG project is expected to be the fourth in the State of Oregon. Greenlane is separately supplying a biogas upgrading solution for the City of Portland’s Columbia Boulevard wastewater treatment plant (CBWWTP), which will also provide for injection of RNG into NW Natural’s network.

Supply of biogas upgrading systems to both CBWWTP and MWMC represents 50 percent of the RNG projects currently operating or under construction in the State of Oregon.

According to Greenlane, it’s PSA solution was selected for this project based on several criteria including the highest reliability, lowest overall life-cycle cost, and best methane capture efficiency, which beat out membrane separation technology proposed by competitors.

Greenlane is the only company to offer the three main biogas upgrading technologies and therefore we offer our customers an unbiased technology comparison to ensure the right technical solution to match the unique requirements of each project. We are proud to have been selected for this project in Oregon, and to help another customer maximize value from their biowaste facilities stated Brad Douville, Greenlane’s President & CEO.

Greenlane recently announced a new order for an RNG project in British Columbia (BC), Canada, valued at CA$3.4 million.
