Legislation to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions Continue to Drive Demand

DUBLIN, January 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The “Biogas Upgrading: Technologies and Global Markets” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com proposal



Biogas is generated through a microbial fermentation process known as anaerobic digestion (AD), by which various waste streams can be cost-effectively converted into sources of electricity and thermal energy. At the heart of the technology is the anaerobic digester, which in combination with a turbine or gas engine, can function as a complete power plant. Solid waste landfills also generate recoverable biological gas through natural AD. Large quantities of gaseous fuel methane can be produced by the process; a valuable by-product is also generated in the form of fertilizer.

While considerable noise and media attention has focused on a future “hydrogen economy” envisioned to replace the current one based on fossil fuel energy, a true biogas economy has quietly emerged in Europe and Asia. Increasingly, the process is entering the United States and other countries as a sustainable energy alternative.

Biogas is defined as a versatile source of renewable energy that has the ability to replace conventional fuels in the generation of power and heat. It can also be used as a gaseous fuel for vehicles. Enhanced biogas or biomethane is an ideal alternative to natural gas.

Due to rising global demand for carbon neutrality and renewable energy, a significant increase in demand for biomethane has been observed. Biomethane is also referred to as renewable natural gas or RNG. Favorable policies focused on phasing out imported natural gas, alternative fuel standards, diverting food waste from landfills, as well as tax credits played a key role in boosting demand for biomethane.

Legislation and the desire to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are the most important drivers for biogas plant construction. Requirements and specifications of the Kyoto Protocol of the EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED) are two examples of this type of legislation. Energy security, the desire to use domestic fuel sources, and elimination of the expense and price volatility of imported fossil fuel also encourage interest in biogas. Globally, most countries have targets for renewable energy production, GHG mitigation or laws related to minimizing harmful landfills.

Large-scale AD waste treatment can help reduce GHGs in a number of ways: directly replacing fossil fuels, minimizing energy use at waste treatment plants, lowering methane emissions from landfills, reducing transport costs related to waste transport, reducing electrical network losses and replacing chemical fertilizers with organic products. Unlike liquid biofuels, biogas, for the most part, eliminates the food versus fuel debate by using waste materials instead of energy crops.

With various levels of purification, also called upgrading, biogas can be used in the same end uses as natural gas, namely, heat and power generation, pipeline insertion and as vehicle fuel. With improved technologies and market support, biogas could also find application in ships or aircraft.
