They want to support the development of bio-methane for gas and transportation needs

Bratislava, September 20 (TASR) – The Slovak Oil and Gas Association (SPNZ) and the Slovak Biogas Association (SBA) will work together to identify and remove technical and legislative barriers to biogas and biomethane use in practice. This comes after the signing of a memorandum of cooperation between the two organizations. The collaboration will also cover comments and development of relevant legislation.

I think we will soon start bio-methane production in Slovakia, thus contributing to the decarbonization of transportation. Biomethane-based gaseous fuels such as bioCNG (compressed gas) and bioLNG (liquefied petroleum gas) have a negative carbon footprint and could be a suitable alternative for electric mobility, ”commented on the signing of the document by the head of SPNZ Tomáš Malatinský. In the case of heavy cargo transportation, according to the head of the Gas Union, this is the only effective alternative to decarbonization at the moment. SPNZ has a similar document on mutual cooperation signed with the National Hydrogen Association of Slovakia .

Nearly 100 biogas plants are active in Slovakia. In the coming years, state support in the form of purchase prices will end and they will make decisions as much as possible. Their operations still face many legislative and bureaucratic obstacles.

SBA President Patrícia Gašparcová promises more support in solving these problems from her collaboration with SPNZ. “The collaboration between SBA and SPNZ is to illustrate the fact that in our country we know and want to produce green biogas, in addition to biomethane or bioCNG and bioLNG. I think that together we will have a higher discharge in removing the barriers that complicate the business of biogas plants in Slovakia. We also expect to gain more awareness of potential investors who may be interested in the topic of greening the gas industry in Slovakia.Gašparcová added.
