The World Biogas Association met with the UNFCCC in Bonn to discuss the implementation of the Biogas Industry and Climate Change Commitment Declaration that was presented at COP25 in Madrid last December. The Declaration sets a target of a 12% reduction in global GHG emissions by 2030, which equates to the total GHG emissions from the entire EU in 2017.
The city of Liverpool in the UK has launched that country’s largest RNG-powered fleet of refuse collection trucks. The 20 trucks, which will consume CNG sourced from biomethane, will help Liverpool continue to reduce its carbon footprint – since 2012, the city has achieved an 18% reduction in carbon emissions and is on track to achieve a 35% reduction by the end of this year.
Smithfield Foods makes the press again with an additional investment in its Monarch Bioenergy joint venture with RAE. The companies announced a further $45 million commitment to the joint venture that captures methane from hog manure and produces RNG. Including this new investment, 85% of Smithfield’s farms in the state of Missouri will be generating RNG. This latest investment bolsters Smithfield Foods’ commitment to a 25% reduction in GHGs by 2025.
Global oil supermajor BP is leaving three U.S. industry trade groups over disagreements on climate policies. British Petroleum will not renew its membership with the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers, the Western Energy Alliance, and the Western States Petroleum Association. The company said its decision to leave the groups was due to the groups’ opposition to federal regulation of methane and carbon pricing. BP has recently announced plans to hit net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, an ambitious goal for one of the world’s largest oil and gas producers.
