Biomethane as a transport fuel within a circular economy
an IEA Bioenergy: Task 37 report (Dec 2021)
Perspectives on biomethane as a transport fuel within a circular economy, energy, and environmental system
This report provides exemplars of very good biomethane based transport solutions, with a high technological readiness level for all elements of the chain from production to vehicles. Transport biomethane sits well in the broad circular economy, energy, and environmental system providing services across a range of sectors including reduction in fugitive methane emissions from slurries, treatment of residues, environmental protection, provision of biofertiliser, provision of food grade CO2 and a fuel readily available for long distance heavy haulage. What we do not have is time to postpone the sustainable implementation of such circular economy biomethane systems as the climate emergency will not wait for absolutely perfect zero emission solutions; should they exist.Click here to read the full document.
