  • Advise on programme of EBA workshops and conferences
  • Support EBA Board in evaluation of project proposals
  • Exchange experiences and information on biogas and biomethane research

  • Exchanging information on market development and new business opportunities.
  • Assessing local/national/European policy instruments from an industrial perspective.
  • Staying informed on R&I developments which have a positive impact on biogas and biomethane industries.
  • Supporting the development of quality standards as a basis for the trade and use of biogas and biomethane across borders.
  • Contributing to improve existing data and statistics on biogas and biomethane.

Any legal or natural person active in biogas or biomethane can become a member of EBA and thus be involved in the CAC.
