In the Fast Lane with Biomethane in Transport: Leaflet & Webinar Highlights

How to reach the European Green Deal in transport? Low emission vehicles fuelled with renewable gas are the answer: vehicles are available, and infrastructure is in place.

Therefore, together with the European Biogas Association (EBA), we have published a new leaflet on the current uptake and future potential of biomethane in a decarbonised transport sector. The leaflet was presented at our joint webinar on 8 July 2020.

Leaflet Highlights

· Today, 17% biomethane is used to fuel natural gas vehicles (NGVs) in 25% of Europe’s refuelling network. This results in a 35% reduction of emissions when compared to conventional fuels.
· In 2030, 40% biomethane will be available to power the entire NGV fleet reducing overall GHG emissions by 55% and delivering up to 1 million jobs.
· Europe’s 2030 estimated natural gas vehicle fleet would result in a yearly fuel cost saving of more than 4.5 billion Euros.
· The local production of clean fuels helps cities deliver their share in a circular bioeconomy by reducing biowaste and air pollution.

Webinar Highlights

The webinar followed and presented the new leaflet and focused on topics surrounding the current uptake and future potential of biomethane in a decarbonised transport sector.

Decarbonising transport is essential to achieve the ambitious EU climate targets and help Europe’s transition to a clean energy system.
In this context, renewable gases are the leading alternatives, which can significantly contribute to reducing CO2 in the transport sector and reach the carbon neutral mobility.
