The Irish Government's National Biomethane Strategy, which aims to support the development of 150 to 200 anaerobic digester facilities and a farmer-centric circular bioeconomy, will be the focus for the 2024 Biomethane Conference, organised by the Renewable Gas Forum Ireland (RGFI).
The event will take place at Croke Park on 12 June, just weeks after the release of the National Biomethane Strategy.
The conference, held in partnership with KPMG Sustainable Futures, the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, and the Department for Environment, Climate and Communications, will be timely for stakeholders interested in AD biomethane and circular-bioeconomy opportunities.
"The strategy is expected to provide clarity for AD developers, farmers and investors regarding funding and a clear framework for regulation, planning, and approval," said PJ McCarthy, CEO of RGFI.
"To meet the Climate Action Plan and achieve the national target of 5.7 TWh biomethane production by 2030, Ireland needs to construct 150-200 large-scale AD biomethane plants. This sector will play a key role in Ireland’s decarbonisation, circular bioeconomy, and energy security and storage."
The conference will feature addresses by Ministers Charlie McConalogue and Eamon Ryan, representatives from Ireland and Northern Ireland’s Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, the European Biogas Association (EBA), farmers – both as feedstock suppliers and AD developers, Dr Paul Crossan and Dr Ciara Beausang of Teagasc, Tom Arnold, Chair of the Food Vision 2030 Strategy Committee, and industry innovators from Nephin Energy, BioCore, Future Biogas, and the Dairy Processing Technology Centre.
