Biogases will play a pivotal role in delivering Europe’s long-term energy security and climate mitigation objectives, as part of a forward-looking and balanced renewable energy mix. Besides, their benefits go far beyond the reduction of greenhouse emissions. Biogases are the cheapest and most scalable form of renewable gas available today. They are a dispatchable energy carrier and as such can be deployed to balance intermittent renewable energy generation. Moreover, biomethane (upgraded biogas) can directly substitute natural gas and it can be stored and deployed across the whole energy system, using existing gas infrastructure and end-use technologies.
Aside from the well-established benefits of lowering emissions, biomethane help to strengthen European farmers’ independence and revenue, support a thriving circular bioeconomy, aid in securing a reliable supply of sustainable food and feed, and reduce Europe’s reliance on energy imports European biomethane market is expected to grow substantially in the coming years, while Greece, in the new National Plan for Energy and Climate, has set ambitious goals for biomethane until 2030.
In this context, in the framework of European Biomethane Week 2023, the Hellenic Association of Biogas Producers-HABIO, organise in Athens the conference
"Biogas-Beyond Energy: Reforming Agriculture and Energy in Greece"
Thursday, 26th October 2023, 13:00
Deloitte amphitheatre, 3a Fragkokklisias & Granikou str. Marousi
Athens 151 25
Participants will have the opportunity to visit Mega Eco biogas production unit, in Megara, which applies innovative technologies in the treatment and utilization of liquid digestate for the production of fertilizers. The conference will be held in Greek.
