Acknowledging the Full Potential of Biomethane as Transport Fuel (European Biogas Assoc. Report Attached)
European Biogas Association
Date: 2020-07-08
Over the past years different studies have been performed on CO2 emissions of fuels by EU institutions, car manufacturers, research institutes and universities. The EBA has made a comparative analysis of 11 studies. Although they show a great variety in methodology, they all concluded that biomethane has the best decarbonisation potential for the transport sector.

The European Green Deal -- In the Fast Lane with Biomethane in Transport (Int'l. Ind. Report Attached)
European Biogas Association ,Natural and Bio Gas Vehicle Association
Date: 2020-06-15
The attached document from the European Biogas Association (EBA) and the Natural and Bio Gas Vehicle Association (NGVA Europe) illustrates the current and potential uptake of biomethane in the transportation sector.

According to the document, 17 pct of biomethane is used today to fuel natural gas vehicles (NGVs) in 25 pct of Europe's refueling network, resulting in a 35 pct reduction of emissions when compared to conventional fuels -- the highest rate of emissions reduction compared to other fuels, with greater potential when coupled with renewable gas. The report notes 117 terawatt-hours of renewable gas could be distributed as transport fuel as bioCNG and bioLNG by 2030 -- 40 pct of the overall fuel consumption of NGVs, estimated at more than 13 million vehicles in 2030.

A higher uptake of bioCNG and bioLNG in the sector will result in an overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction of 55 pct . Up to one million jobs will be created to ensure the scale-up of biomethane in the coming decades. New CNG and LNG stations and vehicles must also be created and must be compatible with their renewable counterparts, the document notes.
