In October, Greenlane Renewables, a biogas upgrading technology supplier, partnered with renewable natural gas (RNG) development powerhouse Brightmark on an RNG project in Florida.

Greenlane’s wholly owned subsidiary, Greenlane Biogas North America Ltd., signed a $5.8-million contract with Brightmark for the multi-site dairy farm project, which will use Greenlane’s pressure swing adsorption (PSA) biogas upgrading systems.

The Florida-based installation, entitled the Sobek RNG project, is in Okeechobee County at four Larson family dairy farms. The project is anticipated to generate 171,000 MMBtu annually of RNG upon completion, which will be injected into the local interstate gas pipeline system. Order fulfilment by Greenlane will start immediately.

Brightmark also announced a joint venture with Chevron USA to own projects across the country for dairy methane production and marketing in early October.

Both companies will fund the construction of infrastructure and commercial operation of dairy biomethane projects in multiple states. Chevron will purchase RNG produced from these projects and market the volumes for use in vehicles operating on compressed natural gas.
