BIOGEST France a participé avec succès au salon Bio360
Exhibition Parc Beaujoire in Nantes
8,000 attendees, 400 exhibitors and 40 different countries
One common goal: accelerating the biotransition
Nantes / Change: BIOGEST exhibited at the Bio360 fair (formerly Biogaz Europe) in Nantes, the leading exhibition for the biogas sector in France, from 30 – 31 March 2022. Bio360 is the go-2-place for all stakeholders engaged in accelerating the biotransition and making a difference in the bioeconomy. The vast and innovative presentation of sustainable solutions and green technologies gives hope to speeding up toward climate neutrality and mitigating Europe’s dependency on imported fossil fuels.
The European Commission published its factsheet for achieving the EU Green Deal and more recently the REPowerEU plan to boost biomethane production in the EU by doubling its current ambitions. The European Biogas Association (EBA) is pushing these actions and highlighting the necessity for capital investments and cooperation. As a member of the EBA, BIOGEST is supporting these efforts with its sustainable and innovative solutions.
Biomethane is the only renewable energy source that can be carbon-negative, as it significantly reduces methane emissions from agricultural operations. BIOGEST’s biomethane plants produce not only pipeline quality green gas but also an organic fertilizer that helps to lower the use of chemical fertilizers in agriculture.
France is one of the most attractive European markets for biogas and biomethane and has regulated processes for green gas projects. To date, BIOGEST has completed 9 biomethane and 1 biogas plant project. The latter is the biggest biogas plant in France, where the BIOGEST PowerRing technology became the solution for solid manure, including stover. The energy generated supplies the public grid as well as about 8,500 households.
BIOGEST recognizes the need to convert organic waste into clean and renewable energy because of rising worldwide waste production and demand for energy. With its products, it can offer an important contribution through the use of renewable, raw materials to achieve climate goals. In contrast to fossil resources, biogas production releases only as much CO2 as the renewable resources drawn from the atmosphere during their growth.
BIOGEST has entered the US market in 2017 and has since then successfully grown the market with commissioned projects and a vast project pipeline for future Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) plants throughout the United States and Canada. The US market is driven by a RNG favorable regulatory framework, substantial methane and carbon reduction program (Low Carbon Fuel Standard / Renewable Fuel Standard), and the large availability of feedstock such as agricultural and food waste. According to recent forecasts of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), RNG is likely to show a steep increase in the next 5-10 years.
RNG is the only renewable energy source that can be carbon-negative, as it significantly reduces methane emissions from agricultural operations. BIOGEST’s RNG plants produce not only pipeline quality green gas but also an organic fertilizer that helps to lower the use of chemical fertilizers in agriculture.
Le salon Bio360 Expo S’inscrivant dans un contexte plus large, Bio360 Expo souhaite, en fournissant un point de rencontre incontournable pour tous les acteurs intéressés et engagés dans l’accélération de la biotransition, jouer son propre rôle dans la réalisation de l’ambition du Green Deal Européen.
