Main EU initiatives covered the year before by activities falling under the scope of the Transparency Register:

Our main objective is promoting the advantage of NG (Natural Gas)/Biomethane as a vehicle fuel due to less tailpipe emissions (such as NOx, CO2 and particulates). The CO2 and air quality debate, as well as energy use of biomass and other feedstock material, such as landfill, sewage sludge, manure, etc. (biomethane production) in transport have the highest priority in our agenda.
