Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo (PGNiG), a Polish state-controlled oil and gas company, has signed an agreement to develop the biogas and biomethane sector.
Several representatives of the PGNiG Group participated in the project, initiated by the Ministry of Climate and Environment and the Government Plenipotentiary for RES, Ireneusz Zyska.
The agreement outlines actions related to the launch and running of production, as well as the management of biogas and biomethane, and the creation of a regulatory environment and mechanisms supporting the development of the industry.
“When talking about solutions supporting the process of energy transformation that is safe for the Polish economy, it is impossible to ignore biomethane,” said Paweł Majewski, president of the management board of PGNiG ARE.
“The development of scattered installations near sources of raw materials and the processing of waste that is burdensome for the agricultural and municipal industries – all this in a very short time may contribute not only to the acquisition of a new energy source but also to solving several important environmental challenges.”
The agreement is the result of activities undertaken under the letter of intent on establishing a partnership for the development of biogas and biomethane sector, signed in October 2020.
