There will be enough sustainable feedstock to produce biogas and biomethane in Europe thanks to:
- Increased supply of food waste thanks to better separate waste collection.
- Unlocked potential from industrial wastewater.
- More efficient use of agriculture residues and animal manure.
- Additional feedstock potential originating from the roll-out of sequential cropping as a sustainable agriculture practice in Europe.
- Improvements in the gasification technology allowing additional types of feedstocks to be used to produce biomethane such as landscape care wood, secondary forestry residues and post-consumer waste wood.
The use of monocrops is not anticipated to reach the biomethane target of 35 bcm by 2030.
