Biogas/biomethane production can be part of the bio-economy and contribute to decreased emissions in sectors such as industry, agriculture, transport, housing or waste management. This is one of key messages contained in EBA’s reply to the Commission consultation to reduce EU greenhouse gas emissions in the long-term. The consultation will analyse cost-efficient scenarios towards decarbonisation in line with the Paris Agreement. more
EBA membership continues to grow! Two new companies have joined our network of Associate Members this month. more
EBA is organising a policy meeting on Guarantees of Origin (GoO or GOs) for members only. Book your seat to attend our discussion at the Renewable Energy House (REH) on 6th December in Brussels! more
“We are moving the bioeconomy from being a very complicated word to being a very familiar place” stated John Bell, Director at the European Commission in charge of bioeconomy, during his opening speech at the Bioeconomy conference held on October 22nd 2018 at the European Commission in Brussels.
The final conference the BiogasAction project took place on 11 October in Brussels in the framework of the European Week of the Regions and Cities. It gathered together numerous biogas stakeholders, including EBA, one of the partners coordinating this H2020 project. We discussed the current role of biogas on EU energy and on the environmental targets, as well as the positive developments on biogas valorisation in the different regions targeted by this project. “Biogas can be an important game changer in the shift towards bioeconomy. It boosts the development of renewable energy, reduces emissions, promotes regional development and makes a positive contribution to circular economy”. Explained Nils Daugaard, coordinator of the BiogasAction project. more
The partners of the BiogasAction project have the pleasure to invite you to join a half-day conference that will look at the opportunities and challenges of the biogas sector in Europe.
EBA and NGVA joined forces to unveil the benefits of gas in transport by presenting a common vision of the associations regarding biomethane as a transport fuel. By 2030, around 30% of gas in transport should be biomethane produced by anaerobic digestion, gasification and power-to-gas. G-mobility is a key player for transport decarbonisation and improving air quality. Renewable gas is fully compatible with current natural gas technologies: blending can be made in any proportion and without any impact on vehicles and transport.

The European Commission has announced a plan to create a single forum representing the entire biofuels sector. The initiative intends to expand and replace the ART-Fuels Forum (AFF) work, which currently counts 100 stakeholders, including EBA, from the low carbon fuels industry.
The European Commission has set new environmental requirements for waste treatment. This initiative comes after the review of the Best Available Techniques (BATs) to reduce the environmental impact of largest waste treatment installations.
