ENGIE has teamed up with Heathrow Airport in the UK to replace natural gas with 100% green biomethane.
Under the agreement, ENGIE will supply Heathrow Airport with biomethane from anaerobic digestion (AD) to all meter points across all terminals until March 2022. The agreement builds on an existing partnership in which ENGIE supplies biomethane to Heathrow’s Energy Centre.
The biomethane supplied by ENGIE will be certified under the Renewable Gas Guarantees of Origin Scheme (RGGOs) and wholly derived from AD.
“The UK aviation industry has made a firm commitment to get to net zero by 2050, at the very latest,” said Heathrow’s director of sustainability, Matt Gorman. “On our journey to rapidly decarbonise every aspect of the industry, we are proud to be partnering with ENGIE to significantly remove carbon from our gas supply, a move that has also helped us to gain carbon neutral status. We urge other companies to join us in making the switch.”
Kevin Dibble, divisional CEO for energy supply at ENGIE UK & Ireland said: “ENGIE is a leader in the supply of green gas in the UK and we are delighted to be using our expertise in supporting Heathrow Airport’s ongoing drive to reduce environmental impact.
“This demonstrates our commitment to working with our customers to achieve their sustainability goals and help them transition to a lower-carbon future.”
