The new NZIA regulation proposal puts the supply of clean technologies at the center. Earlier last year theREPowerEU’s action planfeatured the objective of 35 billion m3(370 TWh) annual biomethane (aka renewable natural gas – RNG) production by 2030, a twelve-fold increase from 2020 production volumes.
According to EBA, the Commission’s NZIA proposal will facilitate the roll-out of the necessary industrial capacity to achieve the REPowerEU’s objective.
The whole biomethane value chain, including the manufacturing of anaerobic digestion (AD) and gasification systems, is solidly based in the EU.
EBA also supports the Commission’s plan to monitor workforce demand and supply and to facilitate the set-up of training programs.
The biogas and biomethane sector today provides more than 220 000 jobs and will provide 420 000 and 1 million jobs, by 2030 and 2050 respectively.
