According to the EBA, the EU biogas sector is committed to climate-neutrality, well developed and ready to scale-up production. According to EBA data, the combined production of biogas and upgraded biomethane could today cover 4.6 pct of the whole EU's gas demand. By 2050, about 30-40 pct of EU gas needs could be met by biogas/biomethane. As one of the global leaders in biogas production, European producers are now seeking new ways for cooperation with third countries to support the deployment of biogas outside EU borders, according to the report. The EBA, together with the German Biogas Association (FvB) and the Austrian Compost and Biogas Association, are already working on this direction in the framework of the DiBiCoo EU Project. One of the fruits of this cooperation is the Categorization of European Biogas and Gasification Technologies. The overview is divided in 2 different publications, one dedicated to anaerobic digestion (AD) and the other one focused on gasification.

The letter notes that by turning all of the country's organic wastes into bioresources, the AD industry could help: the UK achieve carbon neutrality, including delivering 30 pct of the 5th Carbon Budget shortfall; create 60,000 green jobs this decade; bring over £5 billion of private sector investment; boost the UK's exports to a $1 trillion global industry; and support the country's agriculture sector and food and drink industry.
The letter notes "There are over 140 million tonnes of readily available organic wastes still being left undigested in the UK every year. Left untreated, they release methane -- a potent greenhouse gas -- directly into the atmosphere, which contributes to climate change and causes human health issues. Recycling these through AD means that turned into valuable bioresources, such as flexible green gas (biogas), bio-fertiliser (digestate), bioCO2 and other valuable bio-products. With the right support, the UK AD sector would become highly competitive globally", the letter notes.
ADBA says the AD industry urgently needs a policy framework that brings together the multiple strands of work ongoing across government into a cohesive support strategy. The ADBA is presently working with key government departments in developing new strategies and in June, this year, launched the UK AD and Biogas Industry Climate Declaration committing the sector to "doing everything in its powers to deliver the greatest possible carbon reduction for the UK."

According to The White House, aviation represents 11 pct of U.S. transportation-related emissions. The goals set by the Administration are ambitious but achievable with the use of SAF. Landfill gas is an abundant source of waste biogenic carbon, typically comprising -- 50 pct bio-based methane (CH4), 40 pct CO2 , and 10 pct nitrogen (N2). Landfill Off-gas To Ultra-low carbon intensity SAF, or Project LOTUS, will be the first to incorporate nearly all the carbon in raw LFG carbon, including the CO2 found in the raw biogas, into drop-in SAF and renewable diesel. Success in this project will materially increase the supply of low carbon intensity, low-cost SAF in the U.S. and enable rapid build-out of new landfill gas to SAF production capacity across the U.S.
The project will leverage green hydrogen and LanzaTech's gas fermentation technology to convert LFG to ethanol at an operating landfill. The ethanol will be converted to SAF using the LanzaJet Alcohol-to-Jet (ATJ) technology developed by LanzaTech and PNNL. Once the SAF has been produced, SkyNRG Americas has numerous contractual partners including Boeing and Alaska Airlines who are committed to advancing use of the fuel in flight.
Project LOTUS will enable a new domestic, regional supply chain to produce SAF that meets international ASTM specifications while reducing methane emissions and improving air quality. The resultant aviation fuel is high quality, low soot forming, and sustainably derived, reducing up to 110 pct of greenhouse gas emissions over traditional jet fuels. The funding from DOE will accelerate the commercial rollout of this exciting SAF production path from LFG by reducing the technical and financial risks for future integrated commercial plants across the US.
Capturing gas from 35 landfills would produce over 500 million gpy of SAF requiring at least 25 commercial-scale biorefineries, creating good paying jobs and creating a secure domestic SAF market. Further, analysis of the overall biogas resource potential indicates that more than 6 billion gallons of SAF could be produced from 25 pct of the biogas produced at U.S. landfills and from anaerobic digestion of organic wastes and other biogas sources.

The pipeline is part of the Aemetis Biogas Central Dairy Digester Project which is developing a network of lagoon digesters connected via a biogas pipeline to produce renewable natural gas (RNG).
The pipeline will transport the renewable biogas from the dairies to the Aemetis biogas upgrading facility at the Aemetis ethanol production plant in Keyes, California, where the biogas will be transformed into commercial-grade RNG for use as a carbon-negative “drop in” transportation fuel.
The planned 52 dairies in the Aemetis biogas project are expected to capture more than 1.4 million MMBtu of dairy methane and reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to an estimated 5.2 million metric tonnes of CO2 each year. The captured methane will be transformed to carbon-negative transportation fuel to displace petroleum-based diesel throughout the State of California. The 5.2 million metric tonnes of annual CO2 emissions reduction from the Aemetis Biogas project is estimated to reduce CO2 emissions equivalent to removing 1.1 million cars from the road.
Aemetis Carbon Zero products include zero carbon fuels that can “drop in” to be used in airplane, truck, and ship fleets. Aemetis low-carbon fuels have substantially reduced carbon intensity compared to standard petroleum fossil-based fuels across their lifecycle.

According to the Council release, the US biogas industry presently has 2,200 operating projects in all 50 states. Biogas systems recycle organic material into renewable energy and soil products. Because each year the US generates millions of tons of manure, agricultural waste and food scraps, plus billions of gallons of wastewater every day, the potential to build new biogas systems to manage those large volumes of organic waste is enormous. At least 15,000 new systems could be built, catalyzing an estimated $45 billion in new capital deployment along with 374,000 short-term construction jobs to build the new systems and 25,000 permanent jobs to operate them. This number of systems could produce enough energy to power 7.5 million American homes and reduce emissions equivalent to removing up to 15.4 million passenger vehicles from the road, in addition to many other benefits.

A Net-Zero Project aims to convert renewable energy such as photosynthetic, wind, renewable natural gas (RNG), biogas, from various sources into energy dense liquid hydrocarbons that achieve net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the fuel's whole lifecycle -- from the way carbon is captured from the atmosphere, and processed to make liquid transportation fuel products.
Net-Zero 1 to be constructed at Lake Preston, South Dakota is expected to have a capacity of 45 MMgy of hydrocarbons (for gasoline and jet fuel, based on current take-or-pay contracts) and to produce more than 350 million ppy per year of high protein feed products as well as produce sufficient renewable natural gas (RNG) to meet production process needs.
Net-Zero 1 is projected to come in at roughly $700 million including the hydrocarbon production and related renewable energy infrastructure which includes anaerobic digestion to produce biogas to run the plant and generate electricity on-site. (Source; GEVO, PR, 11 Jan., 2021.

The new facility uses anaerobic digestion technology to convert cellulosic plant matterial, including corn stover, into renewable fuel. VERBIO notes the region is suited to provide up to 100,000 tpy of corn stover to produce 7 million gpy of ethanol once the first phase of the site development is complete.
VERBIO purchased the facility from Dow DuPont in late 2018, more than a year after it was abruptly shut down. Under Dow Dupont the plant never became fully operational. VERBIO currently manages four corn stover sites that it acquired from Dupont.
