The 1st Forum of the Polish Biomethane Organization organized as part of the European Biomethane Week, which will take place on October 23 in Warsaw, is held at a time when the national policy to support renewable energy sources is being defined for the next term of the Polish Sejm. After the first stage of rulemaking for our industry, there will be time for stage II, perhaps even more important one.

As part of the 1st Forum of the Polish Biomethane Organization, we would like to focus the attention of the participants on threads that, in our opinion, should play a priority role on the agenda of government actions for the parliamentary term 2023-2027 in order to define the further main needs of the biomethane sector.

The forum is aimed at:

  • representatives of the biomethane industry,
  • government representatives,
  • suppliers of biogas and biomethane technology,
  • representatives of municipal companies and local authorities,
  • organisations and the environmental community,
  • energy and fuel sector,
  • scientific and academic staff,
  • representatives of business, agriculture, transport and industry.

During the forum, the most relevant topics will be addressed, including:

  • discussion of key amendments to acts,
  • demands of the Polish Biomethane Organization to the newly elected government of the Republic of Poland,
  • shaping the domestic market -biomethane as a fuel for the energy transition in Poland.
  • bioLNG, bioCNG and bioLPG,
  • challenges for the transport and heating industry,
  • biohydrogen and green hydrogen on the decarbonised gas map,
  • from plan to full-scale production – how to plan and implement a successful biomethane project?
  • results of the work of the Biomethane Industrial Partnership working groups,
  • changes in European law affecting the development of the biomethane business in Poland,
  • biogas industry in the perspective of 2030 and 2050.
  • examples of good practice and social responsibility initiatives,
  • the role of education and cooperation with local authorities,
  • specifics of investment in large-scale biomethane plants and substrate supply routes.

Green hydrogen production is considered as an essential pillar towards decarbonization of energy-intensive industrial processes to reach the carbon-neutrality targets set for 2050. A potential breakthrough technology is the development of processes allowing the use of available fossil and renewable methane to economically generate hydrogen without any release of CO2 or other GHGs. This requires the development of innovative methodologies to deliver high performance hydrogen production from methane by directly splitting the molecule in its components (hydrogen and solid carbon).

Three European-funded innovation projects, STORMINGTITAN, and COLDSPARK, will present on 27 September 2023, 10:00 – 12:00 CET, some of their solutions for methane cracking to usable hydrogen and carbon materials during an online workshop, followed by a panel discussion on synergies, replication potential, and technology uptake in the sector.

Closing nutrient cycles is essential to develop a more efficient and sustainable food and feed production systems and protect the environment. However more action need to be undertaken to develop a holistic approach to nutrient management.

Being one of the major events on nutrient recycling, the ESNI Conference will provide a comprehensive framework of the policies promoting the nutrient recycling and recovery (NRR) at European level as well as a focus on the role of EU-funded R&I projects in contributing to raise awareness on the benefits of nutrient recycling and reuse.  

The conference will offer a platform for fruitful discussion and exchange of knowledge where policy-makers, researchers, industry representatives and many other stakeholders will discuss how to raise awareness on the benefits of nutrient recycling and reuse.

Do not miss the opportunity to attend the ESNI Conference and contribute to put nutrient recycling high on the EU circular economy agenda!

The EBA will launch in December the 2022 edition of the Statistical Report, one of the landmark publications on the biogas and biomethane sectors in Europe.

We are pleased to invite you to a dedicated webinar on 7 December, 10:00-11:00 CET, where we will explore together the latest developments and future trends of the sector based on the data included in the Report.
In the agenda: 

  • Giulia Cancian, Secretary General of the EBA will give a general introduction and provide an overview of the latest regulatory changes for biogas and biomethane production and use in Europe.
  • Marina Pasteris, EBA Technical and Project Officer, will dive into recent market developments and prospects, including transport sector, digestate production and use – and more.
  • Q&A session led by Harmen Dekker, EBA CEO.

2021 saw the biggest year-on-year increase in biomethane production ever. With many projects in the pipeline and the EU goal of 35 bcm of biomethane production by 2030, the growth prospects for the sector are equally promising. Would you like to know more? Join our webinar!
