Biogas, when it is suitably processed and upgraded, can be used as a fuel for vehicles at an especially competitive price. In Sweden, many vehicles already are fuelled by methane, and there are biogas distribution stations.
At the same time, upgraded biogas can be transmitted to the natural gas grid, something which is already being done in the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland. It can be used for electrical and thermal energy. On an experimental basis, it is being used for the production of hydrogen to supply fuel cells.
The development and installation of biogas technologies is an alternative solution with significant benefits, as it can provide environmentally benign energy while simultaneously solving the continuously growing problem of waste disposal.
