Biomethane in Poland 2019 –  new perspectives for energy producers – National Congress of Biomethane 2019

December 9, 2019, Poznań

The 2019 National  Congress of Biomethane is a conference dedicated to the particularly promising direction of renewable energy industry development.  The largest conference of biomethane in Poland will take place in Poznań

Biomethane in Poland

  • one of the fastest growing renewable energy sectors in Europe. The potential of biomethane was noticed by France, Italy and the Scandinavian countries and others, that’s it fuel that will play a very important role in decarbonising transport.


New regulations, new direction of development: amendment of the act on biofuels to new opening offers for energy producers, Biomethane as a biofuel configuration for biofuel production has help in achieving the National Interface Goal (NWC) in 2020, which is key in the context of meeting the renewable energy target in the end of transport. During the Biomethane Congress, download discuss the topic: created and attracted by legal entities for partners interested in biomethane in transport, good examples from Germany, Italy and Scandinavia, use biomethane as transport fuel.
