Biomethane Industrial Partnership BIP to achieve 35bcm in Europe

As biomethane is the cheapest and most rapidly scalable renewable gas, the European Commission has announced in its recent REPowerEU plan an target to increase the EU production to 35bcm/year in 2030. In September 2022 the Biomethane Industrial Partnership (BIP) was launched; a public-private partnership between the European Commission, EU Member States and the biomethane value chain to jointly work towards achieving this goal. Several Task Forces are working on a specific topic. The focus of Task Force 2’s work is accelerated project development.Atmove is working in the Taskforce 2.5 responsible for biomethane production and distribution from small and medium plants far from the grid. The vast majority of all 20,000 biogas plants in Europe still only produces electricity and heat without upgrading to biomethane, today, there are only 1,076 biomethane plants. In September the consolidated strategies will be published. We are proud to contribute to this important initiative, learning from experts from all over Europe.
