EBA is the voice of renewable gas in Europe. Founded in February 2009, the association is committed to the active promotion of the deployment of sustainable biogas and biomethane production and use throughout the continent. EBA counts today on a well established network of over 100 national organisations, scientific institutes and companies from Europe and beyond.
Advocating for biogas and biomethane in the European Union
EBA works in close cooperation with EU institutions and actively contributes to the development of the legal framework of biogas and biomethane in Europe.
Anaerobic digestion is a mature technology. With the right support, biogas/biomethane can be competitive by 2030, and a vital tool to meet some of Europe’s key policy aims such as energy security, sector integration, sustainable employment and climate-friendly energy. In order to make the gas in the grid green, Europe must implement EU-wide policies to create an internal market for renewable gas and it must develop and commercialise also other technologies producing renewable methane: biomass gasification and power-to-methane.
The different policies having effect on biogas regulating renewable energy, waste management, agriculture, greenhouse gas emissions and gas supply must support each other and avoid any contradiction. Indeed, biogas is at the crossroads of several key sectors of the economy (agriculture, waste, mobility and energy) and requires an integrated policy approach to realise all its benefits and synergies.

Committed to research and innovation
EBA participates in different EU-funded projects contributing to the development of the biogas and biomethane sectors and the removal of existing barriers for the implementation of a circular bio-economy in Europe. The association provides technical, policy and communication expertise in different collaborative projects across Europe. More info: INSERT PROJECTS PAGE
Regular interaction with our members
EBA serves as a platform for information exchange and knowledge transfer. We have an extended network of experts across Europe working at the forefront of
biogas and biomethane development. EBA members can actively contribute to the work of the Company Advisory Council (CAC) and the Scientific Advisory Council (SAC), which give an opportunity to industry and academic members to reflect their views towards the European Union Institutions while strengthening the voice of EBA in policy-making.
