EU, the role of biomethane in the transport decarbonization

The new EBA and NGVA report on the current situation and prospects for the sector

The contribution of biomethane to the decarbonization of transport in Europe. It is the topic at the heart of the report presented by the European associations of biogas (EBA) and gas and biogas vehicles (NGVA Europe).
First of all, the report highlights that “further spread of biomethane will significantly reduce transport emissions in the coming years.” According to the estimates of EBA and NGVA Europe, “117 TWh of renewable gas could be used as transport fuel (bio CNG and bio LNG) by 2030.”
However, the increasing use of “renewable fuels” must be accompanied by the development of refueling stations for these products. Currently, “almost 25% of the European road network is equipped with biomethane refueling points,” reads a message.
This “fast growing” filling station network now has 3,840 CNG and 280 LNG, “but even faster development is needed to stick to the current estimates by 2030,” the report explains.
