The Europe anaerobic digestion market is estimated to grow at a steady pace over the coming years owing to shifting emphasis on increasing the region’s renewable energy share, and strict government rules towards the reduction of carbon footprint. Anaerobic digesters are used in commercial, industrial and residential spaces. The types of feedstock that are used in the process include sewage sludge, organic waste, energy crops and others. There are two kinds of processes in anaerobic digestion, namely, dry AD and wet AD.

Imposition of new government norms across the region could facilitate market expansion. As per the new EU waste legislation, separate collection of biowaste will be made compulsory from end-2023. Considerable growth is also anticipated from industrial applications owing to ongoing investments to obtain energy optimization.

Driven by growing application, companies operating in the Europe anaerobic digestion market are developing new plants and technologies. For instance, in 2020, German plant manufacturer, WELTEC BIOPOWER announced the construction of its new biogas plant in Greece, focused on efficient generation of bioenergy from animal waste. Based on such developments, Global Market Insights, Inc., estimates that the Europe anaerobic digestion market may surpass USD 75 billion by 2026.

Mentioned below are some of the key trends driving Europe anaerobic digestion market expansion:

  1. Increasing adoption of dry AD plants

Use of dry AD plants is on the rise credited to less water usage for the digestion process and flexibility with regards to feedstock. Dry AD technology requires less power and heat as well as few critical equipment. The availability of various substrates per digester along with low maintenance costs & complexity could fuel the usage of dry AD systems across Europe.

  1. Growing demand for organic waste

There is a strong demand for organic waste across Europe owing to a transition towards increasing biogas production from biodegradable waste sources. Organic waste usually consists of green waste, food waste, food-soiled paper, landscape & pruning waste, and non-hazardous wood waste. Strict waste disposal practices as well as rising emphasis on achieving circular economy is anticipated to propel product adoption.

Moreover, construction of new biogas plants in Europe could offer impetus to the market. In 2020, Titan LNG, a major supplier of LNG to the industrial and marine markets in Europe, was offered €11 million in funding from the EU’s CEF (Connecting Europe Facility) for its Bio2Bunker biogas project.; supporting the switch to cleaner fuels for transport.

  1. UK emerging as a promising business avenue

The UK anaerobic digestion market is likely to witness considerable growth owing to government support schemes aimed towards improving the region’s renewable energy share. The government, for example, gives feed-in-tariff for biogas producers up to a capacity of 5 MW. Focus of shifting towards cyclic economy coupled with ample availability of feedstock is expected to boost regional industry size.
