WEBINAR – Global Potential of Biogas

We invite you to join our free webinar on Tuesday, 8th October, at either:

9h30 BST (UTC +1)

– or –

20h30 BST (UTC +1)

The World Biogas Association (WBA) will present its new landmark report: Global Potential of Biogas.

Speakers and topics:

David Newman, President of the World Biogas Association, will chair the webinar

Dr Sarika Jain, lead author of the report, will present the report findings

This report aims to highlight the potential of AD as a technology to generate renewable energy, abate GHG emissions and recover organic nutrients and carbon for use on soil. The report also sets out the potential of AD to help meet the climate change targets under the Paris Agreement.

The key finding of this report is that AD has the potential to reduce global GHG emissions by 3,290 to 4,360 Mt CO2 eq., which is equivalent to 10-13% of the world’s current greenhouse gas emissions. This is achieved through the generation of renewable energy in the form of biogas from the anaerobic digestion of wastes and landfill gas, combined with emissions avoided through the management of organic wastes and avoided fossil fertiliser manufacture, crop burning and deforestation, using technology available and widely used today.

You will be e-mailed the report’s executive summary and full text once you register. You can send in questions before and during the webinar.
