May 6 was a good day for biogas in Denmark. It was decided in the Danish Folketing that the existing system of guarantees of origin must be maintained. There has been a debate about whether biogas plants that receive aid should subsequently be able to sell guarantees of origin. If this system had been introduced, it would have been a negative outcome for the Danish biogas industry.
On March 23, Biogas Denmark wrote:
“A confiscation of the guarantees of origin for biogas, for which aid is paid, will lead to a chain reaction of negative consequences for both investors, the climate and the state’s economy.
The sale of guarantees of origin constitutes a significant part of the decision basis that has been decisive for investors and other financial sources to invest in the increased biogas production in recent years*”.
At Biogas Express, we have closely followed the situation and are happy about the fact that we can now look forward to a continued development of the biogas industry as well as the further work to ensure sustainably produced biomethane from our good collaboration facilities to our customers.
