The #biomethane industry smashed all records in 2021, say @GIEBrussels and @European_Biogas, but only a few plants are present in the CEE region.

#Renewable #gas is a strong accelerator of carbon-neutral mobility and transport. 🚛🚢


All you need to know about gaseous solutions for transport, just one click away⤵️

The European Biogas Association (EBA) and Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE) estimate that Europe has currently around 20,000 operational biogas and biomethane plants.
