Produce 2TWh of biogas by 2025, mainly from waste, targeting 20TWh by 2030
Terms of the action or commitment
Biogas, produced from the degradation of organic waste, is a renewable gas, mainly composed of methane. Compatible with existing transport and storage infrastructures, it has a key role to play in decarbonizing gas products, reducing GreenHouse Gases (GHG) emissions by developing a circular economy. TotalEnergies aims to produce 2TWh of biogas by 2025, mainly from waste, targeting 20TWh by 2030 worldwide.
Expanding our presence in biogas
- In early 2021, TotalEnergies became a major player in biogas in France through the acquisition of Fonroche Biogaz with 500 GWh of installed capacity. In December 2022, TotalEnergies Biogaz France’s 8th biogas unit produced its first volumes of biomethane, which are injected into the Téréga gas network. Located in Mourenx, in the Atlantic Pyrenees, BioBéarn will be the largest biomethanizer in France. TotalEnergies’ total biomethane and biogas production capacity in France is over 500 GWh.
- At the end of 2021, TotalEnergies and Clean Energy launched the construction of their first biomethane production unit, in Friona, Texas. The biomethane produced will be used as an alternative fuel for mobility, thus contributing to the decarbonization of road transport. The installation will be supplied by livestock effluent from the dairy farm and will produce more than 40 GWh/year of biomethane, avoiding 45 kt CO2e/year.
- In early 2022, TotalEnergies and Veolia joined forces to recover biomethane from Veolia’s waste and wastewater treatment facilities in operation in more than 15 countries, with the aim of producing up to 1.5 TWh/ year of biomethane by 2025.
- In India, the “Adani Total Gas Limited” joint venture has launched its first biomethane plant project in Barsana, in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
