Prospects for biogas and biomethane

In this report

Biogas offers various benefits, including GHG emissions savings, improved waste management, enhanced security of supply, improved access to clean cooking facilities, local and rural job creation. Biomethane is a near-pure source of methane, largely indistinguishable from natural gas and so can be used without the need for any changes in transmission and distribution infrastructure or end-user equipment.
