Press Release
  13 February 2018

GIE and EBA publish the 'European Biomethane Map 2018'
The map provides a comprehensive overview of biomethane installations in Europe.

 

Brussels, 13 February 2018 - Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE), in collaboration with the European Biogas Association (EBA), have just published the ‘European Biomethane Map 2018’. This comprehensive map locates and lists all known biomethane installations running in Europe, which amount to over 500 units. It is the first of its kind, produced thanks to up-to-date information gathered from national biogas associations, energy agencies and companies.

 

The map provides specific details about each biomethane plant, including their connection to the gas grid, feed-in capacity, main substrate used, upgrading process and date of start of operation. Cross-border interconnection points and pipelines are also indicated. Furthermore, the map brings additional data about the European biomethane market evolution, distribution of plants in European countries, and forecasts of natural gas and biomethane indigenous production in Europe until 2037.

 

Jan Stambasky, EBA president, said:“The number of biomethane plants in Europe has been considerably increasing in recent years, reaching over 500 units today. EBA and GIE have decided to illustrate this positive trend with this map, which provides a high-quality overview of the main technical features, current status and location of existing installations. With the huge development of the biomethane sector expected in the coming years, this pioneering map might be the first of a long series”.

 

Boyana Achovski, GIE Secretary General, said:“Together with EBA, GIE initiated the project ‘Biomethane Map’ and we are happy to present the first edition. GIE is convinced that the European Gas Grids are ready to ensure that biomethane is transported and injected locally and used globally. This map shows the positive development of the biomethane plants nowadays”.



The map is available for download on GIE and EBA websites.



Should you be interested in the print format, please feel free to order it on GIE website.
