Associations to “intensify collaboration” on key issues

The REA has agreed with the President of the European Biogas Association (EBA), Arthur Wellinger, to strengthen their working relationship on several key issues on a pan-European basis. The agreement was made following the EBA’s annual general meeting on 30th January, held at the Biogas Conference and Exhibition in Leipzig, Germany.

The REA and EBA will work together on:

– Indirect Land Use Criteria (ILUC)
– Biomethane Injection CENTC 408
– End of Waste Project for Biofertiliser and Compost
– Fertiliser Directive
– Energy Taxation Directive
– Green Gas Certification

With its core of experienced policy experts and technologists, including the new staff from the recent merger with the Association for Organics Recycling, the REA is perfectly placed to partner EBA at European level.

REA Head of Biogas David Collins said:

“Many of the issues which will impact on the UK biogas sector this year, such as ILUC and End of Waste, are developing at the European level, so this partnership is very timely and will be very valuable to our members.”

The EBA has built up an impressive membership from both trade organisations and companies throughout Europe and is now an authoritative voice in the biogas field.

EBA President Arthur Wellinger said:

“I look forward to intensifying the collaboration with the REA to create the right conditions for the future expansion of renewable energy and organics recycling projects.”

The Renewable Energy Association represents renewable energy producers and promotes the use of all forms of renewable energy in the UK across power, heat, transport and renewable gas. In 2012, the REA integrated the Association for Organics Recycling as the Organics Recycling Group of the REA, increasing our membership to over 1,000 and cementing our position as the largest renewables trade association in the UK.
