    This summit will highlight how biogas has great potential when it comes to exploiting the potential of managing organic waste in a sustainable way, reducing climate impact and CO2 emissions.

    The summit will include presentations from Danish government officials highlighting how policy can drive sustainable biogas production – and how lessons learned from Denmark can help advance the biogas sector globally.

    Additionally, presenters from the industry and academia will dive into biogas’ role in other sectors and power-to-x.

    Lastly, we will welcome speakers from the United States, Canada, the Netherlands and other European countries to share their insights on the future of biogas globally. By sharing insights across borders, our aim is to increase cooperation, and biogas production globally.
