Webinar: Which biomasses are really usable for biomethane?

WEBINAR (SEMINARIO ON LINE), 28 April 2021, ORE 15:00-16:30

The DM on biomethane encloses a series of products that give the right to obtain the Certificates of Release for Consumption (CIC), taken verbatim in Annex IX of the Directive (EU) 2015/1513 on biofuels. This listing, born to regulate the use of agricultural biomass for biofuels, contains very few of the raw materials most frequently used in biogas plants and refers to some categories of by-products and waste, defined in a generic and equivocal way.

This causes many uncertainties about the actual suitability of raw materials for the purpose of recognizing incentives for biomethane. The GSE, based on the assessments of the Biofuels Committee, subsequently provided guidelines, but it has not resolved all the doubts about the different types of permitted by-products.

This seminar aims to clarify this matter, on the basis of the most recent jurisprudence, on some types of biomass, among the many by-products or agri-food waste of interest for feeding agricultural anaerobic digestion plants.

The webinar will be structured as follows:

  • Waste or by-products? The basic classification criteria
  • The eligible products based on annex. 3 (All. IX, Biofuels Directive )
  • How to build the power plan
  • Impacts on the economic result
  • The revision procedures of the’ All. IX
  • Questions and answers

The opportunities of the new European Fertilizer Regulation for the agricultural and waste sectors

The theme of the future of agricultural biogas plants is closely linked to the enhancement of by-products and waste of agri-food origin. The biogas plants built in the last 10 years and partly financed with public money, to encourage the progressive replacement of fossil sources, they are a technological asset and an important source of sustainability …
