Digital Global Biogas Cooperation

Project description

Marketing Europe’s biogas knowhow abroad

The EU is a world leader in biogas – gas produced from organic waste. Europe is also the world’s leading producer of biomethane – produced by the enrichment of the methane content of biogas, sewage gas and landfill gas. The EU-funded DiBiCoo project will support the rapid growth of the European biogas/biomethane industry by preparing markets for the export of related technologies from Europe to developing and emerging countries. It will develop support tools, both digital and non-digital, to enable knowledge transfer and capacity building. The project will assist the European biogas industry reach out to emerging markets across Africa, Latin America and South East Asia. The target countries selected for the DiBiCoo proposal are Argentina, Ethiopia, Ghana, Indonesia and South Africa.

Objective

The overall objective of the project is to support the European biogas/biomethane industry by preparing markets for the export of sustainable biogas/biomethane technologies from Europe to developing and emerging countries. This will be achieved by the development and application of innovative digital and non-digital support tools and actions, by knowledge transfer and capacity building as well as by the preparation of demo cases up to the investment stage. This will increase the share of renewable energies, both in Europe and in importing countries. More specifically, the DiBiCoo proposal aims to support the European biogas industry in diversifying its sales market and therefore increasing the deployment of biogas technologies in emerging markets across Latin America, Africa and south east Asia, helping mitigate GHG emissions and increasing the share of global renewable energy generation. The project aims to synthesise and develop country-specific technologies and solutions in the import markets. The target countries (importing countries) selected for the DiBiCoo proposal are Argentina, Ethiopia, Ghana, Indonesia, and South Africa. These countries have been selected because of the high market potential for biogas projects in the country, along with favourable regulatory environment and support schemes in each of these countries. The already existing cooperation between some of the consortium members in these countries is seen as an additional asset for the successful implementation of the DiBiCoo project. All target countries lack capacities for optimal deployment of biogas technologies from domestic sources. The potential for the common learning and the sharing of knowledge and experience between actors in these countries and in the EU is very high, which can be triggered and facilitated by the project partners based on their joint networks, knowhow and experience.
