Biogases towards 2040 and beyond: A realistic and resilient path to climate neutrality

We would like to invite you to join the European Biogas Association third Dig Deep! Webinar “Biogases towards 2040 and beyond: A realistic and resilient path to climate neutrality” on Tuesday 16 April 2024, from 10h to 11h30, to explore Biomethane potential by 2040 and beyond.

In February 2024, the European Commission unveiled its evaluation for an EU 2040 climate target aimed at cutting GHG emissions by 90%. This target reinforces EU’s commitment to combatting climate change and guides our trajectory beyond 2030, with the aim of attaining climate neutrality by 2050.

The webinar will be the occasion to unveil the 2040 Biomethane potential study, discover how biomethane stands out as a cost-effective solution for GHGs reduction in multiple sectors and engage in discussions on leveraging biogases to meet 2040 climate objectives, while navigating the path towards 2050.
