Download the document

The biogas technology delivers renewable energy in form of biogas and contributes to the climate protection. However, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in form of methane can be emitted into the air, due to leakages or special events in operation. 

Within this information sheet, EBA states, besides various positive effects of using biogas, the importance of minimizing the methane emissions from biogas industry. For that, this information sheet summarizes potential emission sources and addresses how to minimize methane emissions from biogas plants.

Additionally, several ongoing initiatives for reducing methane emissions in European biogas sector are introduced.
