Results from 2 EU Horizon 2020 projects on waste to energy:

The final conference (28 November 2017) of BIOSURF and Bin2Grid, two EU-funded projects aimed at increasing the production and use of biomethane in Europe, took place on 24 November in Brussels. Speakers from both initiatives presented their main achievements from the last three years.

The projects have promoted the collection of waste materials and the development of grid injection of biomethane in order to create an “embryonic” European biomethane market and encourage its use as a transport fuel. Stefano Proietti from ISINNOVA, coordinator of the BIOSURF project, and Attila Kovacs from the European Biogas Association (EBA), presented the actions taken to kick-start a cross-border trade of biomethane within European countries. To achieve this goal, BIOSURF produced comprehensive guidelines to establish national biomethane registries, together with the establishment of the European Renewable Gas Registry (ERGaR) to foster cooperation among biomethane national registries.  ERGaR will continue its activities beyond the end of the project, aiming to become the Europe-wide recognised organisation for administering mass balancing volumes of biomethane virtually distributed along the European natural gas network.

BIOSURF: The objective of BIOSURF (BIOmethane as SUstainable and Renewable Fuel) is to increase the production and use of biomethane (from animal waste, other waste materials and sustainable biomass), for grid injection and as transport fuel. It consists of 11 partners from 7 countries. More information at


Bin2Grid: The goal of Bin2Grid is to promote segregated collection of food waste as energy source, conversion to biogas, and its upgrading to biomethane and utilisation in associated network of filling stations, addressing environmental protection and production of renewable energy at the same time. It involved sustainable management of food waste in four cities: Malaga, Paris, Skopje and Zagreb. More information at

Both are EU-funded projects under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
