Biogas and Biomethane
Biomethane is produced from organic resources and is therefore a 100% renewable energy source. ENGIE is working actively on the development and recovery of this energy, drawing on synergies with the natural gas industry. In France, the Group is the only player involved in every stage of the biomethane chain.
A natural process developed on an industrial scale
Biomethane is a combustible gas produced by the transformation of organic matter (wood, plants, organic waste from domestic, agricultural and industrial sources, sewage sludge, etc.). It has many uses such as heating, electricity and fuel.
Various processes make it possible to produce and use biomethane on an industrial scale and make it an innovative, high-performance complement to the energy mix.
ENGIE is actively involved in the development and recovery of this energy, capitalizing on its technical and industrial expertise as well as its ability to manage the entire gas chain.
ENGIE and biomethane
ENGIE sees biomethane as the energy source of the future. Non-polluting and locally produced, it supports the energy transition. ENGIE therefore offers biomethane to the market, and is involved at every stage in its production right through to its transportation and marketing.
