2020 marks the first year of what has been dubbed the climate decade. We must make significant progress on our global pathway towards Net Zero emissions by 2030 if we are to limit global warming to 1.5oC. As we face this challenge, the AD sector has quantified it’s potential to reduce GHG emissions by at least 12% globally, by utilising all sustainable feedstocks, and has committed to delivering this by 2030. This Summit will explore how we must work towards this critical goal together. It will also mark the launch of our new WBA report, which sets out what needs to happen if we are to achieve the 12% by 2030. The inaugural Summit of this landmark decade will also consider the broader goals of climate action and the vital role of biogas and bioresources within these.

Set within the context of a global Covid-19 pandemic, our flagship industry event has adapted to these unforeseen circumstances with innovative, online solutions to bring industry, academia, and policy makers together from across the globe. This year’s events have led to the growing realisation from a coalition of public, private and not-for-profit organisations that public health must be safeguarded as part of any economic recovery strategy, as must the transition to an environmentally sustainable society. It is vital that this includes cutting emissions in the hardest to decarbonise sectors of heat, transport, waste management, and agriculture. All of these are delivered by investing in AD.

Organic wastes are valuable resources with roughly 35 billion tonnes produced worldwide each year. Both for health and climate change, it is vital that collection and treatment of these wastes are optimised to deliver environmental benefits. Having established that biogas holds the potential to deliver a 12% cut in global greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, the question this summit will answer is how we deliver on that potential.

The World Biogas Summit will address key aspects of the role of the biogas industry in the green recovery. Our exciting agenda includes the following panel sessions:

  • Financing a Sustainable Future with biogas at its heart
  • How to achieve the Net Zero Reality: AD in the city
  • Saving the world’s soils: digestate and soil health
  • North America and Canada: the huge potential of AD in the worlds’ second biggest energy market
  • Food Waste collections across the World: The untapped potential
  • Biogas in the Global South

The World Biogas Summit, building on the success of the WBA’s eFestival, is held in parallel with the World Biogas Expo 2020 in an interconnected, online programme, in which companies exhibit their technologies and services, while our program of sessions offer expert insight into policy, technical and operational issues.

The biogas industry is growing rapidly worldwide, which presents exciting new opportunities to grasp as well as challenges for us to explore and overcome together. Join us to hear from specialists and experts from across the globe, to share knowledge and best practice, learn from the experiences of others and agree on the key strategic approaches necessary for a healthy, sustainable future.
