Element Markets Named US Emissions House of the Year by Energy Risk Magazine

Element Markets, LLC, a Houston-based renewable natural gas marketer and leading manager and supplier of environmental credits, has been named the US Emissions House of the Year by Energy Risk, the leading monthly publication for the world’s oil, gas and electricity risk managers. This prestigious award is granted to only one company in the U.S. Emissions market each year. This is the second time Element Markets has won the award in the last four years (2010 and 2014), and the company was chosen as this year’s recipient based on its industry-leading services and practices within the greenhouse gas, emissions, renewable natural gas, and renewable energy credit markets.

Since inception, Element Markets has transacted over $1.6 billion in environmental commodities and provides environmental consulting and management services for over 8,000 MW of fossil and renewable energy generation. Element Markets is one of the most active marketers of criteria pollutants (NOx, SOx, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), and Particulate Matter) in the U.S, and has transacted over 40 million tons of greenhouse gas allowances and offsets since 2005.

As an extension of the environmental commodities business, Element Markets has also become a leading marketer of renewable natural gas (biomethane), successfully completing long-term contracts with voluntary and compliance buyers in multiple markets and some of the first registrations of landfill gas projects under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Renewable Fuel Standard and the State of California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard.

“This award reminds us of all that we have accomplished here at Element Markets, and I look forward to continued success. We do not take our clients for granted, and we will continue to perform as a leader in the environmental commodity markets.“ said Randall Lack, Founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Element Markets.

The 20th annual Energy Risk awards, held on May 21, 2014, recognized companies of excellence in the energy markets. An Energy Risk panel comprised of Energy Risk editors and third-party industry experts, ultimately selected Element Markets as the company that has consistently exceeded industry standards in the U.S. emission markets.
