The most important message is: increase biomethane input tenfold from today's 3.5 billion m³

35 billion m³ as early as 2030. And the EU Commission is committed to this, as are the member states France, Italy, Ireland, Denmark, the Netherlands and Ukraine, in addition to the United Kingdom, which are already planning a funding framework for expanding capacities or have already implemented.The different approach was takenAlso clear in comparison to the USA: "We would rather promote one kilowatt hour too much than that will not be able to expand capacity."

The Biogas Association spoke on site about the successful expansion of flexible production
in recent years – bureaucracy, long approval times and more difficult financing are slowing Germany down. The tender results also show this.

Biomethane is seen as playing a rapidly growing role in the transport sector, particularly on the demand side. Investors are ready to jump on the future horse “biomethane”. Goldman & Sachs says that when all CO2 avoidance costs are taken into account, biomethane is no more expensive than fossil fuels and its climate protection properties are therefore often underestimated.

“Game changer” biomethane, that is the solution for which Lare Biallargeon, responsible for market development policy in the EU Commission, together with Nature Energy and Total Energie, put forward. The interest is there, let's implement it was the credo from business and administration such as the energy, politics and agriculture directorates.

The well-rounded picture of the conference rounded off the discussion about soil health, diversity and the possibilities of carbon dioxide marketing.

On the last day, practice came to the fore with a visit to the sustainably managed Zeeland biogas plant.

Highly informative and a good network for trading, buying or selling biomethane.
