TotalEnergies, Veolia partner to produce biomethane

TotalEnergies and Veolia have agreed to produce biomethane from Veolia’s waste and water treatment facilities in 15 countries.

The partners will develop and co-invest in a portfolio of international projects, with the aim of producing up to 1.5 TWh of biomethane annually by 2025.

This production of renewable gas made from organic waste will be equivalent to the average annual natural gas consumption of 500,000 residents and will avoid some 200,000 tons of CO2 per year. TotalEnergies will market the biomethane produced as a renewable fuel for mobility or as a substitute for natural gas in other uses.

“We are pleased to partner with Veolia to promote the recovery of waste through the production of biomethane and thereby the circular economy, one of the pillars of sustainable development,” said Stéphane Michel, president of gas renewables and power at TotalEnergies.

“The development of biomethane is part of TotalEnergies’s transformation into a broad energy company, and the deployment of its ambition to be a major player in renewables.”

Veolia’s chief operating officer Estelle Brachlianoff added: “Our partnership with TotalEnergies is in line with Veolia’s strategy to develop solutions for decarbonising the energy mix, notably with biogas, as part of an ecological transition.

“At the global level, the biogas resources at our sites offer more than 6 TWh of primary energy. With this biomethane production potential and our know-how in biogas management, Veolia intends to become a leading player in the value chain while developing more centralised and local green energy production capacity.”
