Modern societies and economies produce increasing amounts of organic waste that can be used to produce clean sources of energy, with multiple potential benefits for sustainable development.
That according to a recent report from the International Energy Agencywhich says that biogas and biomethane are different products with different applications, but both originate from a range of organic feedstocks whose potential is underutilised.
Outlook for biogas and biomethane: Prospects for organic growth provides estimates of the sustainable potential for biogas and biomethane supply, based on an assessment of feedstock availability and production globally to form an outlook for biogas and biomethane supply and demand up to 2040.
The report suggests that the production and use of biogas and biomethane embodies the idea of a circular economy, bring benefits from reduced emissions, improved waste management and greater resource efficiency.
