European Biomethane Conference.
The online registration is closed. You are welcome to register on site.
On 12 October, dena will hold the first European Biomethane Conference in Berlin. Biomethane is becoming increasingly popular in Europe. In some European countries, significant biomethane markets are emerging, while other countries are in the process of developing promising framework conditions. New processing technologies and innovative processes are ready to be launched on the market and stand as proof of the innovative abilities and dynamics that are at work in this sector.
In Europe, the mass balance approach has become the established method for documenting the origin and properties of biomethane. The mass balance approach creates transparency and is thus a fundamental factor in the growing European biomethane trade. New products, certificates and labels have created space for trade.
dena's European Biomethane Conference is the first European platform dedicated to identifying biomethane trends and prospects in Europe. The subjects that will be discussed at the conference include the opportunities and limits of the mass balance approach as well as the aspects that have proved of value and the aspects necessary to further expand the European biomethane market. Come and
discover innovative technologies and processes. find out about promising markets.join the discussion on the opportunities and limits of the mass balance approach.and learn more about the European biomethane trade.The conference will be organised by dena, an organisation that has been implementing various projects such as the Biogas Partnership, the Biogas Register and GreenGasGrids, to promote the development of the German and European biomethane markets since 2008.
bmp greengas –Germany's leading biomethane trader
As a nationwide biomethane wholesaler and service provider, bmp greengas trades some 1.4 TWh of biomethane per year, accounting for about 15-20 percent of the German biomethane market. bmp greengas is your partner for the reliable transport, trouble-free balancing and secure supply of biomethane. The company develops an appropriate solution for every customer.bmp greengas is a founder member of the biogas register operated by the dena and carries out the verification of biomethane quantities and qualities required for transfer to the natural gas system on behalf of its customers.
