APBG - Asia Pacific Biogas Alliance

Renewables & Environment

The Asia Pacific Biogas Alliance is the REGIONAL VOICE for the Biogas Industry in the Asia Pacific. The Asia Pacific Biogas Alliance was founded in 2014 to promote the sustainable growth and development of the Biogas industry in the region. We believe that it is very important that the business and safety fundamentals are correct in order for the region’s business to grow. Providing a voice for the industry to governments, advisors and think-tanks is an important step in ensuring that the right policies, frameworks and rules are applied. For this to happen, we hope to focus on 3 main areas: Government Policies, End-User Education in Commerciality and End-User Education in Safety. For this to take effect, we have formed an association that is truly representative of the industry and have the technical know-how and expertise to make sure that the association remains relevant and useful to the industry. Each Country has a representative from Government and the Board is comprised of Industry representatives. By mixing policy and practice, the Alliance helps to create a safe and successful market.

Business Developer

FORNOVO GAS is a European leader in the compression of Biogas and Biomethane. The first project done in such application was ten years ago in Iceland and after that the quality of our systems and the performances of our compressors has been required in other countries like Germany, Denmark, Sweden and UK. For this reason we have attended at Biogas Asia Pacific forum in Kuala Lumpur on april 28th and 29th. The conference was very interesting because gave us an update picture of the situation in countries like Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand where our brand is not yet well known. Thanks to this conference we knew some key players of this new industry in South East Asia and we hope to close a first project within the end of 2015. We are also a member of the Asia Pacific Biogas Alliance because we believe is the best way to drive and follow up the development of this industry in South East Asia.
