Harmen Dekker CEO European Biogas Association tells @RenewGasRGFI 2022 Biomethane conference that Biomethane is a lot more than “just energy” digestate offers an alternate to commonly used synthetic fertilisers

RGFI welcomes the commitment to  AD biomethane in CAP 2023 and looks forward to working with DAFM and DECC on a national strategy early in 2023 https://www.gov.ie/en/press-release/c2114-government-launches-updated-climate-action-plan-accelerating-ambition-in-reaching-climate-goals/

Welcome KPIs to deliver abatement in agriculture, in the CAP23, for AD Biomethane production - 1TWh by 2025 through 20 AD Biomethane plants, and 5.7TWh by 2030 through 200 AD plants @agriculture_ie @Dept_ECC @European_Biogas @IFAmedia @DairyIndustryIE @ERGaR_GreenGas @Teagasc

The pathway to #NetZero requires more than renewable electricity. We need #renewable gases & #hydrogen molecules.
Proud of this @IEABioenergy paper expanding on the role of #biomethane within #CircularEconomy.

Been a busy few days but we were delighted to attend the @RenewGasRGFI biomethane conference this week, where the ambitions and challenges around this area for farmers and agriculture were outlined. There was consensus that biomethane can be a key diversification opp for farmers

The @EcoADIreland project aims to develop economic solutions for on-farm anaerobic digestion in Ireland. 📗

Dr @AnneMHenihan @DPTC was delighted to meet Minister @McConalogue and other speakers at the 2022 Biomethane Conference. Great to hear insights from experts in decarbonisation and renewable energy. @RenewGasRGFI

👏Big step for #biomethane production in Ireland 🇮🇪
Ambitions to develop 1⃣3⃣0⃣ biomethane plants in the country by 2030, representing 2.5TWh, have been unveiled at the Renewable Gas Forum Ireland #RGFI 2022. The plan could create 3,000 local jobs!

A huge thanks to @McConalogue. We look forward to collaborating with the team @agriculture_ie and across government, the farming community and industry to mobilise to build the c130 at scale AD plants needed by 2030 to meet decarbonisation targets and support sustainable agri

Thanks to @RenewGasRGFI for inviting me to address the Ireland biomethane conference today.

AD is an area of immense potential and we want to harness it.

By the end of the decade, we could be charging our phones using electricity generated on farms - that's hugely exciting.

Day two of the @RenewGasRGFI Biomethane Conference. We’re getting into the nuts and bolts of what it is going to take to mobilise an agri AD biomethane sector @farmersjournal

Dr Paul Crosson @teagasc who is currently taking part in a @RenewGasRGFI conference panel highlights that AD is a complimentary/ additional enterprise on livestock/beef farms.

Conor Mulvihill from Dairy Industry Ireland tells @RenewGasRGFI Biomethane Conference in Dublin that there is no clear biomethane strategy in Ireland and is urging government to set out a clear policy - he says dairy farmers will back AD if it makes sense

John Pakenham ⁦@VisionGreen4⁩ says planned return on investment and biomethane business case is improving and we hit the sweet spot earlier this year to encourage HGV consumers to invest. But they also need security of supply. With Darren Carty Sustainable Flight Solutions
