TotalEnergies and Veolia reveal biomethane ambitions

TotalEnergies and Veolia have signed an agreement to produce biomethane from Veolia waste and water treatment facilities operating in more than 15 countries.

The partners will develop and co-invest in a portfolio of international projects, with the ambition to produce up to 1.5 terawatt-hours (TWh) of biomethane per year by 2025. This production of renewable gas made from organic waste will be equivalent to the average annual natural gas consumption of 500,000 residents and will avoid some 200,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. TotalEnergies will market the resulting biomethane as a renewable fuel for mobility or as a substitute for natural gas in other uses.

As part of this agreement, the partners will pool their industrial know-how in biomethane production. Veolia will provide its expertise in the production and processing of biogas from its facilities, and TotalEnergies will contribute its in-depth knowledge of the entire biomethane value chain.

TotalEnergies claims to be the segment leader in France, with close to 500 GWh of production capacity, and aims to become a major player in biomethane internationally by partnering with market leaders such as Clean Energy in the United States. The company is active across the entire biomethane value chain, from project development to marketing of biomethane and its by-products (biofertilisers, bioCO2).

California’s Biogas Potential

The American Biogas Council has rated California as No. 1 in terms of its biogas potential. With 301 biogas systems installed, the Council sees the potential for up to new 1,294 systems, capable of producing a total of 181.6 billion cubic feet of biogas per year. The capital investment potential is thought to be US$3.9 billion.

Farm-derived manure is expected to have the greatest potential, with capacity for over new 900 systems, compared to the 38 currently in use. These new manure-derived systems could account for over half of all biogas output in the state.

Nature Energy to invest US$5.3 billion in new biogas plants.

Nature Energy, based in Odense in Denmark, has announced a new strategy for growth, outlining plans to invest DKK 35 billion (US$5.3 billion) by 2030 in the construction of new biogas plants in international markets. By 2024, Nature Energy plans to be building between 10 and 15 new plants annually.

Nature Energy currently operates 12 biogas plants in the EU, and by 2022, the company will have further extended its portfolio with plants in new markets in Europe and North America.

At the same time, the company has a number of new technologies in the pipeline  says CEO Ove Hvelplund, which will help it to halve its production costs over time.

Largest ever biogas supply agreement to boost infrastructure plans.

The 1st July announcement that Nature Energy and Shell have entered into a major agreement whereby Nature Energy will sell biogas to Shell Energy Europe Limited is heralded as the largest, to-date, of its kind in the world. This new tie-up with Shell promises to catapult Nature Energy onto the global stage.

“The agreement is a blue stamp of biogas as an important part of the green transition that is taking place all over the world. We are proud that an energy mastodon like Shell is investing in biogas from us” said Ole Hvelplund, CEO of Nature Energy.

“The agreement is a commercial breakthrough for biogas and at the same time gives us more muscle to realize new biogas projects. We have ambitions to build several large-scale biogas plants in Denmark, North America and Europe, and here the agreement with Shell is an important step on the path for Nature Energy” continued Mr Hvelplund.

AcuComm’s WasteView project database contains details 13 of Nature Energy’s biogas projects, all located in Denmark – including a large (600,000 tonnes of waste per annum) anaerobic digestion plant near Sønderborg which is due to be operational in 2021.
