~Company delivers fifth consecutive quarter of record revenue with over 100% year-over-year growth and a record sales order backlog~

Greenlane Renewables Inc. (" Greenlane '' or the " Company ") (TSX: GRN) (FSE: 52G) (OTC: GRNWF) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021 . For further information on these results please see the Company's Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com . All amounts are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated and in accordance with IFRS.

Third Quarter Highlights Include:

  • Record revenue of $13.4 million , an increase of 107% over the $6.5 million reported in the third quarter of 2020.
  • Gross profit of $3.1 million , gross margin (gross profit excluding amortization) of $3.4 million (25% of revenue).
  • Net income of $0.1 million .
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $0.1 million 1 .
  • Record sales order backlog 2 of $47.1 million as at September 30, 2021 .
  • Sales pipeline 3 valued at over $850 million as at September 30, 2021 .
  • Cash and cash equivalents of $35.6 million and no debt, other than payables and bonding resulting from normal course operations, as at September 30, 2021 .
  • The Company announced new contract wins totalling $18.9 million for the supply of five biogas upgrading systems: the first for the supply of a new membrane separation biogas upgrading system for a project owned by an international energy company in the United States , followed by the supply of two PSA biogas upgrading systems for dairy farm RNG projects in the States of Wisconsin and New York developed and owned by a proven leader in the waste-to-energy industry, and finally a contract for the supply of two PSA upgrading systems for Green Impact Partners in the State of Colorado . Order fulfilment on all five systems commenced immediately upon contract signing.

"As global leaders, scientists, financiers, and negotiators descended on Glasgow Scotland for the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference starting last week to hammer out solutions, the need to accelerate decarbonization and hasten the energy transition to renewables could not be more apparent. There is a growing recognition that there is no net zero without biogas and as much RNG as can be produced is needed. With these supportive fundamentals, Greenlane's growth has continued as the company delivered a fifth consecutive record revenue quarter exceeding 100% year-over-year growth and a record sales order backlog," said Brad Douville , President and CEO of Greenlane. "Additionally, the company delivered a fourth consecutive quarter of positive adjusted EBITDA, which was against a backdrop of tightening labour markets and supply chain disruptions globally."

"Our sales pipeline continues to grow, which is a reflection of the ongoing expansion of the RNG industry and the increasing urgency to decarbonize global energy systems through immediate and proven technologies.  Momentum continues to gather behind RNG as an attractive low-carbon and carbon-negative solution to displace diesel fuel in heavy duty trucks and marine vessels and fossil natural gas in distribution networks fueling homes, businesses and factories.  Greenlane is solely focused on an RNG market that is rapidly expanding.  Our expertise as the only global provider of the three main biogas upgrading technologies provides us with the unique ability to meet the needs of biogas projects around the world, no matter the size, feedstock type, or pipeline injection specification. We are confident with our competitive position and are excited about the path ahead."

Greenlane continually updates its pipeline of active system sales opportunities, which at September 30, 2021 was over $850 million . The sales pipeline represents visibility to a significant number of opportunities that funnel down through our sales process, and those opportunities successfully converted into contract wins move into our sales order backlog. The Company's sales order backlog 2 of $47.1 million as at September 30, 2021 is a snapshot in time which varies from quarter end to quarter end. The sales order backlog increases by the value of new system sales contracts and is drawn down over time as projects progress towards completion with amounts recognized in revenue. The Company's gross margin in the quarter was 25% ( $3.4 million ). Going forward, gross margin is expected to continue to be in the range of 25% to 30% on an annual basis.

The Market Outlook

Out of the COP26 UN Climate Change conference in Glasgow last week, came a milestone announcement which highlights the commitment of world leaders to influence change and reduce the carbon footprint of the global community. More than 100 countries representing 70% of global GDP, signed the Global Methane Pledge to collectively reduce methane emissions by 30% by 2030 from 2020 levels. Methane is one of the main causes of climate change and reducing emissions is one of the fastest methods of effecting positive change, for example by capturing methane containing biogas from landfills and other sources of biomass and upgrading it to valuable RNG before it can escape into the environment.

Another important outcome from COP26 was the announcement that over $130 trillion of private finance is now committed to science-based net zero targets and near term milestones, through The Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero, led by former Bank of England governor Mark Carney . Analysis, commissioned by the UN High Level Climate Action Champions, finds that the private sector could deliver 70% of total investments needed to meet net zero goals.

We continue to see increasing activity in RNG from the global energy supermajors. Chevron announced in September a tripling of its investment to $10 billion to reduce its carbon emissions footprint through 2028, including $3 billion earmarked for renewable fuels. Chevron has also announced the creation of a joint venture with Mercuria Energy Trading, one of the world's largest independent energy traders, to own and operate a network of 60 compressed natural gas (CNG) stations across the US. The creation of this joint venture will allow Chevron to rapidly grow its renewable natural gas value chain, complementing its previously announced plan to open more than 30 Chevron-branded CNG stations by 2025 as the company seeks to increase its RNG volumes tenfold by 2025.

Shell recently announced that it is now producing RNG from its first biomethane facility in the U.S., as the company grows its portfolio of low carbon-intensity fuels for use in heavy duty transportation. Shell is also developing additional RNG production facilities to be located directly within operating dairies. Shell Downstream Galloway at the High Plains Ponderosa Dairy in Kansas and Shell Downstream Bovarius at the Bettencourt Dairies in Idaho are part of this expanding portfolio using cow manure as feedstock. Together, these two facilities can produce approximately 900,000 MMBtu a year of negative carbon intensity RNG.

Repsol, the large Spanish integrated energy company, has produced renewable hydrogen using biomethane as a raw material for the first time, obtained from urban solid waste.  Repsol is replacing conventional natural gas with biomethane of sustainable origin to produce renewable hydrogen in its industrial complexes, therefore decarbonising its processes and products.

Seaspan Ferries became the first Canadian marine company to pilot the use of RNG to reduce greenhouse gas emissions produced by its roll-on, roll-off LNG-powered marine fleet. Seaspan anticipates that by using RNG, greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced by upwards of 85 per cent versus traditional diesel fuel. Using RNG for marine LNG has the potential to be an emissions game changer for the sector and is yet another example of how renewable gas development is transforming natural gas infrastructure into a delivery system for carbon neutral energy.

In Brazil , Petrobras signed a Cooperation Agreement with ZEG Biogas for the joint development of the biomethane market in the country. The objective is to promote the growth of the biomethane market in Brazil , providing producers with technological solutions for the manufacture of biomethane from by-products that originate from the production of ethanol. The company believes that the potential market for the product in Brazil is over 10 billion cubic meters per year, which is equivalent to one third of the current demand for natural gas in the country.

NON-IFRS FINANCIAL MEASURES
Management evaluates the Company's performance using a variety of measures, including "Adjusted EBITDA", "gross margin" (gross profit excluding amortization), "sales pipeline" and "sales order backlog". The non-IFRS measures should not be considered as an alternative to or more meaningful than revenue or net loss. These measures do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other publicly traded companies and should not be construed as an alternative to other financial measures determined in accordance with IFRS. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to both management and investors in measuring the financial performance and financial condition of the Company. Management uses these and other non-IFRS financial measures to exclude the impact of certain expenses and income that must be recognized under IFRS when analyzing consolidated underlying operating performance, as the excluded items are not necessarily reflective of the Company's underlying operating performance and make comparisons of underlying financial performance between periods difficult. From time to time, the Company may exclude additional items if it believes doing so would result in a more effective analysis of underlying operating performance. The exclusion of certain items does not imply that they are non-recurring.

Note 2 - Sales order backlog refers to the balance of unrecognized revenue from contracted projects. The sales order backlog increases by the value of new system sales contracts and is drawn down over time as projects progress towards completion with amounts recognized in revenue (by reference to the stage of completion of each contract).

Note 3 - Greenlane maintains a sales pipeline of prospective projects that it updates regularly based on quote activity to ensure that it is reflective of sales opportunities that can convert into orders within approximately a rolling 24 month time horizon. Not all of these potential projects will proceed or proceed within the expected timeframe and not all of the projects that do proceed will be awarded to Greenlane. Additions to the amount in the sales pipeline come from situations where the Company provides a quote on a prospective project and reductions to the sales pipeline arise when the Company loses a prospective project to a competitor, a project does not proceed or, where a quote in the pipeline is converted to Greenlane's sales order backlog.

HydroGraph Clean Power

HydroGraph Clean Power


Overview

There's never been more attention on clean energy generation than exists today. Between the EU's push for clean energy for all Europeans, the passing of various state-level green laws throughout the US, and the US government's decision to invest $2 trillion in clean energy to support a green economy — when it comes to energy production — it's clear the future is leaning green. The goal of these initiatives is to transition our energy production from non-sustainable sources like coal, gas, and oil into more sustainable options like solar, wind, and hydroelectric.

The US government is committing to decarbonizing the power sector by 2035, with the goal of reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The UK has also followed suit by committing to cutting more than 50 percent of its emissions, which it believes could help bolster its economy through increased jobs. As governments around the world shift towards clean energy, the demand for various materials such as hydrogen and graphene is expected to rapidly increase.

HydroGraph Clean Power (CSE:HG) is a Canadian industrial materials manufacturer focused on commercializing its patented, green and cost-effective graphene and hydrogen manufacturing process. HydroGraph Clean Power's patented Synthetic Detonated Graphene (SDG) process is a clean energy production platform that produces hydrogen gas and the only synthetic detonated graphene.

SDG process

The SDG process produces identical batches of 99.8 percent of pure graphene without impurities from hydrocarbon gases. The process is cost-effective, digitally-controlled, customizable, decentralized, consistent and energy-efficient compared to other methods. More importantly, the company's graphene product can be produced on-site at an industrial scale and competitive prices.

The SDG process is a green, low-cost and low-energy process that produces virtually no emissions. The process is initially sparked from an electrode –– which requires very low energy –– and then relies on reactants to continually power the system. By enabling the energy within the hydrocarbon gases to power the system, the company can keep its energy costs low. The SDG process is also completely chemical and solvent-free resulting in low or net-zero emissions.

The company's graphene product is commercially superior to other graphene products on the market. HydroGraph Clean Power's SDG process produces one to five layers of graphene without impurities compared to conventional methods which produce less than 10 layers of graphene, often with impurities. Given the company's ability to produce high-quality graphene at low costs, HydroGraph Clean Power strongly believes that it will be able to market its graphene product at competitive prices with significant margins.

The company is positioned for strong growth in the near future with the recent commercialization of its graphene detonation chambers. The company plans to use its detonation chambers to develop advances in additive manufacturing, battery technology, conductive inks, industrial manufacturing and other applications.

HydroGraph Clean Power is expected to capitalize on graphene sales in various markets. The company's highly efficient SDG process is capable of producing consistent and customizable graphene for a variety of applications. The compact and modular detonation cylinders also allow the process to be deployed virtually anywhere resulting in significant market opportunities.

In May 2021, the company closed a private placement for gross proceeds of $6,505,000. The private placement was led by PowerOne Capital Markets Limited and Haywood Securities Inc. The funds from the financing round have been allocated towards scaling production of its SDG platform to commercialization, SDG platform automation and research and development focused on synthesizing nanotechnology products.

HydroGraph Clean Power, is led by a highly experienced management team with specialized experience in materials science. The company's technical team took part in the discovery of the detonation method at Kansas State University currently used in the SDG platform to produce graphene. HydroGraph Clean Power is the exclusive owner of the worldwide license from Kansas State University allowing it to produce valuable clean energy and nanotechnology products through their patented detonation process.

Key Product

HydroGraph Synthetic Detonated Graphene Process

The HydroGraph Synthetic Detonated Graphene (SDG) process is a patented clean energy production platform that produces hydrogen gas and the only synthetic detonated graphene. The company's process effectively produces identical batches of 99.8 percent of pure graphene from acetylene and oxygen gas. The SDG process is cost-effective, green, digitally-controlled, customizable, decentralized, consistent and energy-efficient compared to other methods.

HydroGraph Synthetic Detonated Graphene Process

Conventional graphene mass manufacturing involves reducing multilayer graphene from mined graphite feedstock to less than 10 layers of graphene. This conventional method is complex, energy-intensive, expensive and ultimately results in an inferior graphene product with impurities. HydroGraph Clean Power's SDG process produces between one to five layers of graphene which is classified as "very few-layer graphene" with no impurities. The process enables the energy within hydrocarbon gases to also power the system which reduces the energy requirements with virtually no emissions.

The company's graphene detonation chambers have already entered commercialization. Going forward, the company plans to use its detonation chambers to develop advances in additive manufacturing, field technology, conductive inks, industrial manufacturing and other applications. The company's graphene product can be produced on-site at an industrial scale and competitive prices.

Carbon Capture and Storage: Basic Facts for Investors

As world leaders continue to share net zero carbon emissions pledges and make efforts to implement green energy transitions, technology is expected to play a key role.

In recent years, carbon capture and storage has emerged as a way to potentially reduce carbon emissions. The process works by capturing and storing carbon dioxide (CO2) before it is released into the atmosphere.

This technology can capture up to 90 percent of CO2 released by burning fossil fuels for electricity generation and industrial processes such as cement production.
