WBA to release global market report on the potential of biogas

The World Biogas Association (WBA) has announced that it will launch a report on the global market potential of biogas during the inaugural World Biogas Summit 2019 in July. 

The potential for growth in biogas markets in different regions across the world as well as on a global scale will be outlined in the report. It will build on a series of pre-existing WBA reports. Some have focused on biogas markets from particular countries whilst others have reported on the contribution that biogas can make to meeting specific policy goals such as the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals, improving urban air quality, mitigating climate change and tackling food waste.

WBA President David Newman said, If rolled out on a large scale, biogas technologies can reduce global emissions by a staggering 20% - a huge contribution to tackling the urgent challenge of climate change. There is enormous growth potential for these technologies right around the world, particularly in countries with poor existing facilities for managing wastes such as inedible food, sewage, and manures.”

The inaugural World Biogas Summit 2019 is being co-organised by WBA and ADBA (the UK’s Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association). It will be taking place on the 3rd and 4th of July at the NEC in Birmingham, UK. 

Newman added that, “Together with ADBA, we’ve been investing both time and money into these flagship events to make them the largest and most international to date. This has included appointing a dedicated events management company to grow the events and creating the World Biogas Summit, a major new international thought-leadership forum that will run alongside the Expo and put anaerobic digestion and biogas at the very heart of global sustainable development, where it needs to be.”
