R2Gas Workshop: Biomethane – The most evident renewable fuel today
Vienna, 25th April 2023, 09:00 to 17:00

Due to the current limited availability of natural gas from Russia, biomethane has gained an increasing interest. With the proposition of the Fitfor55 followed by the REPowerEU programmes, the importance of biomethane jumped up high again in the agenda with the target to produce some 35bcm by 2030. However, there are still a few hurdles to overcome.

Experienced experts from production, market, policy and application will discuss the actual status, the potential and limits of biomethane production as well as the business opportunities.
