Demonstrating and Connecting Production Innovations in the BIOMETHAne uniVERSE

Project duration: 1 October 2022 – 31 March 2027

BIOMETHAVERSE aims to diversify the technology basis for biomethane production in Europe, to increase its cost-effectiveness, and to contribute to the uptake of biomethane technologies. To this aim five innovative biomethane production pathways will be demonstrated in five European countries: France, Greece, Italy, Sweden, and Ukraine.


  • Demonstrate increased cost-effectiveness and innovative biomethane production
  • Increase biomethane sustainability by reducing GHG emissions
  • Ensure replicability and upscaling of the demonstrated biomethane production pathways
  • Guarantee market access of the demonstrated technologies


  • Increase the biomethane production potential by 66% by 2030
  • Create 294,000 jobs by 2030
  • Enable 113 Mt CO2eq GHG savings by 2030
  • Reduce biomethane production costs by 13% – 44%
