China has issued a guideline for developing the biogas industry and expanding its energy supply. As per the guideline, the country plans to add over 10 billion cu. m of biogas capacity by 2025 and over 20 billion cu. m by 2030. The new guideline has been jointly issued by the National Energy Administration and nine other central departments. It calls for establishing an industrial system that enables the gathering of raw materials, and the processing and consumption of biogas within a close radius. Biogas will also be used for heating in cold areas of northern China, as well as included in the government’s development plans as a key component.
