CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 4, 2012) - Montauk Energy - a renewable energy company specializing in the recovery and processing of landfill derived biomethane has purchased the Blackline GPS (TSX VENTURE:BLN) Loner® IS device to protect their lone workers across the United States.
"Employees are Montauk Energy's most valuable resource and their safety is our first priority" says Dave Herrman, CEO of Montauk Energy.
