The German Biogas Association is participating in the BIOSURF project. BIOSURF (BIOmethane as SUstainable and Renewable Fuel) is a project supported by the EU in the context of the Horizon 2020 Programme for research, technology development and demonstration projects.

The goal of BIOSURF is to increase the generation and use of sustainably produced biomethane and to overcome non-technical hurdles in order to enable international trade in biomethane. The BIOSURF consortium consists of eleven partners from seven countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy and Great Britain).

The project’s goals include:
      • Analysis of the value chain from production to usage based on spatial, physical and economic aspects (specified for various areas, e.g. biofuel in the transport sector, electrical power generation, heating and cooling)
      • Analysis, comparison and promotion of biogas registries, labels, certificates and trade practices for biomethane in order to facilitate cooperation between various countries and international markets based on the participating partner countries
      • Environmental criteria and quality standards in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and indirect land-use change (ILUC), to protect biodiversity and to be able to calculate energy/CO2 balances
      • Identification of the most important sources of CO2 emissions along the value chain as input for future approaches to optimization as well as an exchange of information and examples of best practices across Europe, taking policies, regulations, supply systems and technical standards related to biomethane into consideration
