The next decree on biomethane, of which the first drafts have already been circulated, it will be aimed in particular at the conversion of existing biogas plants. Most of these, while using livestock manure to some extent, it obtains the preponderant part of gas production with the use of corn and biomass from the first crop.

Since the conditions of the PNRR , to which the decree on biomethane is linked, prescribe very high values ​​of sustainability, that is, the reduction of CO2 emissions compared to the equivalent fossil source, the feasibility of the conversion of a biogas cogeneration plant to biomethane will depend on a series of interventions. The most important of these will be a radical modification of the feeding diet, with a massive use of livestock manure and / or agri-food waste and by-products.

Sustainability will also refer to the net energy production of methane, therefore, the most energy-efficient production technologies will be rewarded.

This webinar offers a reasoning on what the concrete application of these requirements will entail to existing biogas plants, examining a number of diets of typical diets, able to achieve 80% emission reduction targets, as required for insertion into the grid without specific destination and to access the incentive tariffs of the new decree.
