The World Biogas Association (WBA) is organizing the World Biogas eFestival, which will take place 18-21 May.
The World Biogas eFestival is a series of online interactive presentations by an international line-up of eminent speakers sharing their expertise and facilitated networking to achieve the common goal of:
- highlighting the use of biogas worldwide,
- sharing best practice,
- discussing new innovations,
- understanding the barriers preventing growth and policy contexts,
- identifying potential solutions,
- addressing questions around technological challenges and opportunities.~
The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) will attend the following session:
Incorporating biogas into climate action plans
21 May, 14:15-16:15 BST/15:15-17:15 CEST
Signatories to the Paris Climate Agreement must publish action plans on how they intend to deliver their emissions targets. Biogas can contribute to net zero emissions. This session will explore the role of major international organisations in encouraging their members (including nations and cities) to develop their climate policies, for example treating food waste, farm wastes and sewage, to prevent methane emissions, displace fossil fuels, and produce renewable biofertilizer.
