The potential for bioSNG production in the UK

This report reviews the potential for bioSNG production and use in the UK, in terms of suitable technologies, feedstocks and plant locations, potential for economic competitiveness when used in heat and CHP applications, and local emissions impacts. It also considers the policy climate for bioSNG production and use, barriers to production and use, and recommendations to overcome these barriers.

The study concludes that in the long term bioSNG could be an economically attractive option for providing low carbon heat in the domestic sector, in particular where direct use of biomass is not possible. BioSNG is primarily being developed outside of the UK, and we highlight the importance of encouraging and supporting the first bioSNG projects in the UK.
