Following last year’s virtual event, the World Biogas Association (WBA) is hosting its 2022 Summit, a multi-layered exhibition featuring expert discussion around the challenges and potential of all things biogas, biomethane, and anaerobic digestion (AD).

The two-day in-person event will take place at Birmingham’s NEC arena from June 15th – 16th

Discussion will focus on a range of biogas and AD-related topics, including the ability for biogas to de-methanise global industry. 

Using biogas, methane – the second most abundant man-made greenhouse gas (GHG) – could be converted into renewable fuel, avoiding 1,200 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent emissions, according to Chief Executive Charlotte Morton. 

Capable of displacing 32% of natural gas consumption, biogas could also play a key role in the energy transition by providing an immediate source of clean energy while giving alternative fuels such as hydrogen time to scale-up. 

Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine earlier this year, the levelling up of biogas could accelerate the adoption of the fuel to reduce Europe’s reliance on Russian natural gas, increasing both energy and food security.

An expert panel will consider what the changing economic outlook of rising energy prices could mean for the global agriculture industry’s transition to AD and biogas. 

Guest speakers include Rick Duke, the Senior Director White House Liaison for the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry and co-chairman of the Climate & Clean Air Coalition, Dolf Gielen, Director at the IRENA Innovation and Technology Centre, Dr. Peter Zenewski from the International Energy Agency (IEA), and many more.
