Biomethane is a programmable renewable energy source that is obtained by subjecting the biogas to an upgrading process (pre-treatment, purification and separation of methane from carbon dioxide), bringing the concentration of methane (CH4) to exceed 97%.

The use of biomethane has a positive impact on the agri-food industry and the water treatment and organic solid urban waste sectors, in a circular energy perspective. Moreover, it is sustainable: being CO2 neutral, it can also help reduce emissions into the atmosphere.

Thanks to the upgrading process, it is possible to convert biogas from anaerobic digestion derived from the treatment of biological by-products, agricultural waste, animal waste, organic solid urban waste, WWT and other biomass into biomethane. The generation of renewable fuel represents a profitable solution thanks to the possibility of feeding it to the grid or transporting it by road.

In the UK approximately 120 biomethane filling stations will be needed by 2030
