WBA joins Climate and Clean Air Coalition
The World Biogas Association has been accepted as a new Actor under the Agriculture and Waste Initiatives of the United Nations Environment Programme’s Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC).
CCAC cooperates with key emitters of short-lived climate pollutants and other stakeholders globally to ‘encourage, enable and catalyse action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions’.
"We are delighted to join the CCAC, which works to reduce short-life climate pollutants, of which methane is a major contributor,” said David Newman, president of the World Biogas Association (WBA).
“WBA will offer its technical expertise to cities and countries around the world looking to reduce their methane emissions by encouraging them to capture these emissions in biogas plants and use wastewater and food waste treatment as a renewable energy feedstock. Joining the CCAC provides WBA with an excellent opportunity for the biogas industry to engage with institutions globally to assist and develop the use of biogas technologies to fight climate change."
WBA recently launched a report exploring how cities around the world can reduce methane emissions through separately collecting food waste and recycling it using biogas technologies into green products. The UK launch of that report will take place at the UK AD & World Biogas Expo 2018, an AD and biogas tradeshow organised by WBA and the UK Anaerobic Digestions & Bioresources Association.
