Transport is responsible for around a quarter of EU greenhouse gas emissions making it the second biggest greenhouse gas emitting sector after energy. Biogas is one of the cleanest and most versatile renewable fuels available today, answering on challenges of EU sustainable development strategies. Upgraded biogas–biomethane–has the same advantages as natural gas, but additionally is a sustainable fuel that can be manufactured from local waste streams thereby also solving local waste problems. During the last years, the production and use of biomethane has significantly increased in many European countries. Sweden is world leading both in terms of automotive use of biomethane and its non-grid based transportation.
