BEST ACE

The project BEST ACE helps develop natural gas grid infrastructure and use biomethane efficiently in long-haul transport and maritime industry.
Project summary
The current proposal from the EU-commission to measure emissions at the tailpipe, and not from the full production cycle, means that compressed biogas (CNG) will soon be phased out for light vehicles and replaced by electricity and hydrogen. There is also the directive on emission free city transports where public transports are shifting into electric buses. The commission has pointed out that biogas as liquified biomethane, which is a locally available resource, should be aimed for long-haul transports, maritime use and reformed into hydrogen. The current problem is that the light vehicle market will be ending in the upcoming years and the new proposed markets will not be action ready for many years. This time gap could be devastating for the millions of euros already invested in biogas production and infrastructure in the Baltic region. Therefore, it is of great importance to identify the conditions and elaborate a business roadmap for biomethane in the Baltic area for the use in long-haul transports, maritime use, reformation to hydrogen and for the natural gas grids. The aim of this is to speed up the market process, avoid the time gap for implementation and to secure a continuous development of biogas production.
