The Methane Imperative: WBA at COP26

Anaerobic digestion is the key to delivering on the EU-US Global Methane Pledge across farming, food waste and wastewater treatment.

It is the cornerstone of commonsense action plans on methane from both the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and EU, and flagged as a readily available low-cost solution by the United Nations.
