The European Commission, as part of the REPowerEU plan to make Europe less dependent on imported fossil fuels, has targeted the biomethane sector to double its production by 2030, compared to 2020 levels. This would deliver 35 bcm of biomethane by 2030, supporting the achievement of climate goals and energy security alike. RePowerEU calls for urgent action to mitigate the impact of rising energy prices, diversify the EU gas supply and accelerate the clean energy transition. The EU has called for this biomethane production target to be included as part of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED III), currently under development.
Upgrading existing biogas facilities to produce biomethane and building new plants to expand production capacity will provide a more resilient and sustainable energy network. Biomethane can also be used to help decarbonise the heavy road transport sector which is not
practically achievable through electrification. These objectives to decarbonise the areas of transport and heat are already mandated through national GHG reduction quotas.
Digestion plants using high proportions of liquid and solid manure, organic wastes and residual materials can demonstrate significant levels of economic return with lower input costs. Biomethane generated from manure also achieves the highest trading certificate prices based on the direct emission savings and energy recovery potential.
The option to access the biomethane market may be available for plants already generating electricity on site where they can be converted or expanded for biomethane grid injection. Plants can inject biomethane local to the site or alternatively a group of plants may avail of a shared central grid injection point.
agriKomp can deliver all the necessary technology, design, and components for your biomethane plant construction; including the provision of support and advice through the feasibility and planning stages. Operational support is also available locally with flexible service contracts, including mechanical and biological requirements. We can help you with many of the typical considerations at feasibility stage, such as:
