The biogas industry is evolving worldwide, but it requires policy implementation and financial support for it to thrive and mature. City, regional and national governments are establishing their climate change and sustainable development strategies. We therefore have reached a crucial moment to ensure biogas technologies get recognised as a major solution, and I’m calling on you to support our efforts in doing so.
The anaerobic digestion (AD) and biogas sector has the potential to grow into a prominent global industry. Biogas technology generates clean energy, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, restores soils, improves air quality, fosters energy security and recycles organic wastes. All these global trends are important to consider at local levels, such as in the recovering economy of Greece. Let’s all learn from each other so biogas can achieve its full potential everywhere.
On 3rd-4th May, 2019 in Athens, the World Biogas Association is hosting its first-ever international congress. Whether you are a WBA member or not, whether you are from Greece, Europe or from around the world, please join us. We have a great story to tell and a game-changing sector to promote.

“Why do you feel it is important to participate in this conference?”
First of all, I would like thank the World Biogas Association for the opportunity to host the International Biogas Conference in Athens, Greece.
One of the greatest issues our world faces today is waste management and nature conservation. The sustainability goals set by the United Nations, pave the way for the implementation of policies that will enable states and local governments to create better and healthier living conditions for their citizens and visitors. Waste management spreads to every sector of our everyday lives and constitutes one of the main challenges we are called to face upon. Biogas, undoubtefully, constitutes one of the most prominent solutions for waste management and forms a substantial part of the global energy mix. The Biogas industry is booming in Greece, nowadays, and for this purpose we believe that the conference constitutes an excellent opportunity to communicate with leading experts on the valorization and production of biogas and it provides an effective way to network and create synergies with new business and existing partners.
