One important aspect hampering biomethane market deployment is technical standards. A working group lead by the European Biogas Association (EBA), worked on the following objectives:

  • Contribute to solving open issues of technical standards for biomethane
  • Add to work of CEN group on technical standards for biomethane and other existing initiatives/material

To reach its goals, the working group focused on these topics:

  • Entry specification for gas grid (key issues such as Oxygen, Siloxanes and CV)
  • What gas quality parameters are monitored and how often (continuous or spot)
  • Standards for injection related plant
  • Differences in Member States
  • Grid capacity/compression, responsibilities
  • Efficiency of upgrading (methane losses, energy consumption)
