Its mission is to make the European Institutions aware of the positions taken by the Association’s members, as well as to provide reliable information on the market development.

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.
