The World Biogas Association and the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives (GAIA) will be co-hosting an official event at COP27 taking place in Sharm-el-Sheik, Egypt.
The panel discussion themed as “Methane from the Waste Sector: Opportunities and Challenges to Deliver the Global Methane Pledge” will take place on Thursday, 17 Nov 2022, 16:45—18:15 local time, in Thutmose in the Blue Zone of COP27.
The World Biogas Association is the global trade association for the biogas, landfill gas and anaerobic digestion (AD) sectors, dedicated to facilitating the adoption of biogas globally. We believe that the global adoption of biogas technologies is a multi-faceted opportunity to produce clean, renewable energy while resolving global issues related to development, public health and economic growth. We seek to represent all organisations working in the biogas industry at the international level across the world, including; national associations, biogas operators and developers, equipment providers, water companies, the agricultural sector, waste companies, and academic & research institutions.
GAIA is a worldwide alliance of more than 800 grassroots groups, non-governmental organizations, and individuals in over 90 countries. With our work we aim to catalyze a global shift towards environmental justice by strengthening grassroots social movements that advance solutions to waste and pollution. We envision a just, zero waste world built on respect for ecological limits and community rights, where people are free from the burden of toxic pollution, and resources are sustainably conserved, not burned or dumped.
