Biomethane in Australia fact sheet
Biomethane (also known as Renewable Natural Gas or RNG) is a gas produced by decomposing organic matter found in landfills, wastewater, agricultural and livestock waste. It produces clean energy, heat and low-carbon transport biofuels and is widely used in the United States and Europe.
Biomethane significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions and is fully interchangeable with conventional methane. It can be transported in existing natural gas pipelines, as compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquified natural gas (LNG). Biomethane can be produced today to help decarbonise industry and transport.
Australia is well-placed to establish a biomethane industry using our existing gas infrastructure. Find out more below.
