Gases produced from landfill waste could replace approximately 20% of today's global gas consumption, the International Energy Agency has calculated.

Ukrainian gas transportation system allowed to pump biomethane

On August 2, the Ukrainian energy market regulator NEURC adopted a resolution "On Amendments to the Code of the Gas Transportation System and the Code of Gas Distribution Systems", which regulates the supply of biomethane in the network.

Thus, the resolution provides for an increase in the molar fraction of the oxygen content in natural gas from 0.02 ml. %:

  • up to 0.2 ml. % for biomethane access to the gas transmission system;
  • up to 1.0 ml. % for biomethane access to gas distribution systems.

Also recently, on July 22, the Government of Ukraine approved the Procedure for the Functioning of the Biomethane Registry.

Thus, at the state level, the efforts of all - the parliament, the government, the Ministry of Energy, the State Energy Efficiency, the NEURC - have been accumulated to introduce the biomethane market in Ukraine.

Biogas is a fuel obtained by hydrogen or methane fermentation of biomass. Earlier, the head of the Czech Ministry of Labor Marian Jurechka called for the use of biomethane instead of Russian gas, and the British newspaper Independent stated that France could replace the share of imported Russian gas with biomethane by 2030.
