Plans are under way to develop up to 125 anaerobic digester plants in Ireland by 2030, based on a Government commitment to announce a Renewable Heat Obligation Scheme in the coming weeks.

Attendees at the launch of the Renewable Gas Forum of Ireland (RGFI)/REGATRACE Biomethane 2030 Roadmap heard that the Irish anaerobic digestion (AD) biomethane sector has the capability to replace roughly 11% of current gas consumption in Ireland.
