A new group dedicated to promoting bio-methane as a road transport fuel in the UK launched at the Naturally Gas conference on 1 May.
The group—National Forum on Bio-Methane as a Road Transport Fuel—developed from a study carried out on behalf of the NSCA (National Society for Clean Air and Environmental Protection) and a subsequent conference during 2006.
The study concluded that a significant proportion of the UK’s road transport fuel needs could be supplied by bio-methane produced by the anaerobic digestion of organic waste. As additional benefits the process could reduce waste sent to landfill and also produce potentially valuable by-products.
