Join the Policy Learning Platform on 15 May from 11:00 to 12:30 CEST for a webinar on biogas from organic waste.

This webinar will show policymakers how anaerobic digestion of organic waste can help meeting both the renewable energy and the recycling targets with one measure.

Most EU regions and cities are striving to increase renewable energy production on their territories to meet EU targets and foster local employment and tax revenues. Cities and regions have a good reason to turn to biogas because biogas can help solve their waste management challenges.

In 2018, the revised Waste Framework Directive introduced stricter rules to guarantee the separate collection of waste streams including biowaste (from 2023). At the same time, it called for the diversion of biodegradable waste from landfill and incineration towards anaerobic digestion and composting as this benefits both the climate and the local communities. 

This webinar will showcase how organic waste management with biogas can help to meet the Renewable Energy targets, to become more energy-independent, and to create new local employment in a circular bio-economy.
