Fortis BC and Greenlane Biogas strike upgrading deal
Greenlane Biogas has sealed a (Canadian) $3.4m deal to supply biogas upgrading equipment to Fortis BC. Greenlane will provide its water-wash technology solution for a municipal waste treatment in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Work will begin immediately, with final commissioning expected to be completed mid 2020. The facility will produce clean Renewable Natural Gas (“RNG”) for injection into the gas distribution network owned and operated by FortisBC, the local gas utility.
Eight of the 12 biogas upgrading facilities in operation or under construction in Canada utilize or will utilize Greenlane supplied systems. Its water-wash (or water-scrubbing) technology, is a proven gas purification process that uses no chemicals or heat.
“The market for biogas upgrading technologies is accelerating as organizations look for ways to maximize the use of their resources,” says Brad Douville, Greenlane’s President & CEO. “We are proud to provide municipalities and others with solutions to help them extract more value from their waste and enable their participation in the RNG market. This order in British Columbia, together with a recent win in Quebec, further solidifies Greenlane’s leadership position in Canada.”
Both Brad Douville and Scott Gramm, Manager of Renewable Gas, Fortis BC, will be attending and speaking at the World Biogas Summit, being held at the Birmingham NEC on July 3rd and 4th.
Mr Douville will be introducing and chairing the Game Changers session on the Summit stage (Day 1, 11:15) and contributing to the session on developing the market mechanisms that might valorise the environmental services that biogas delivers to stimulate its growth exponentially (Day 1, 15:00). Scott Gramm, Manager of Renewable Gas, FortisBC, will be speaking in the Starting From Scratch session (Day 1, 12:45pm).
