DMT Environmental Technology
The specialist in biogas upgrading
Growing demand for biogas upgraidng
Since the first commercial biogas upgrading system in 2012, supplied by DMT Environmental Technology. The development in the industry has not stood still and is characterized by strong growth, primarily driven by the rise in global demand for energy, and Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) in particular. This has also pushed the development for bio-LNG, produced from biogas from waste streams such as organic (household) waste, sludge, manure or agricultural waste.
- European number 1 biogas upgrading technology
- Over 30 years of experience
- Over 50 operational sites world wide
Upgrading biogas in Europe since 1987
Are you driven by biogas? Creating value from is waste and converting it to renewable energy, is what motivates us. DMT can offer several technologies each to best suit your business case. At the forefront of developments, DMT supports customers, waste to energy, agricultural entrepreneurs, oil and gas utilities and WWTP utilizing their waste by-products by turning it into a high-value efficient green gas.
Global biogas industry leaders call on governments around the world to unlock the full potential of biogas in addressing the climate emergency
- If all barriers were removed, the biogas industry could abate up to 4bn tonnes of CO2 equivalent annually, representing at least 12% of today’s global emissions, by 2030.
- Today only 2% of the feedstock available globally to produce biogas is captured and recycled.
- At the COP25 meeting, the World Biogas Association and its leading corporate members will present UNFCCC with a declaration in which they commit to delivering the full potential of biogas by 2030 and call upon world governments to support this ambition.
In a ground-breaking Biogas and Climate Change Commitment Declaration, major biogas industry corporations, led by the World Biogas Association (WBA), call on the world’s governments to act urgently to unlock the sector’s potential to cut global greenhouse gases emissions by at least 12% within the next 10 years – and therefore make a considerable contribution towards meeting their Paris Agreement targets. In return, these companies commit to putting their full human, financial and technological resources behind enabling the rapid expansion of biogas in all parts of the globe. It is the first time that so many powerful biogas organisations join forces to both demand – and deliver – solutions to address climate change.
In its recent report, the Global Potential of Biogas, WBA estimated that the number of industrial plants operating globally is currently 132,000. By 2030 there needs to be at least 1 million large scale installations (each handling over 100,000 t/pa of feedstock) plus millions of smaller-scale digesters, to achieve the emissions reductions targets. All of these units would enable the biogas industry to prevent 4bn tonnes of CO2 equivalent from being emitted annually – the equivalent of all the emissions of the EU28 in 2017. The sector will need to invest some $5 trillion to design, build and operate those plants, but all barriers to those investments existing today must be eliminated if the industry is to achieve its goal. If deployed to its full potential, WBA estimates that the industry would employ around 10 million people worldwide, from 350,000 currently
WBA President David Newman said: “With measures on the ground not yet aligned with countries’ Paris Agreement targets and UN Sustainable Development Goals commitments, the biogas industry calls on the world’s governments to urgently pass legislation to unleash the enormous potential of the biogas industry. We provide a ready to use technology to cut emissions in the hardest to decarbonise sectors, while creating a circular system that transforms the greenhouse gas-emitting organic wastes society produces into renewable energy, biofertilisers and other valuable bioproducts. The speed at which climate change is accelerating emphasises the urgent need for responses that go beyond business-as-usual to remove the barriers to large scale investment in biogas technologies. We need decisive actions now.”
David and WBA Chief Executive Charlotte Morton will deliver the Declaration in person to H.E. Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change at the COP25 meeting in Spain, which they will be attending as the WBA is an Observer Party to the Conference.

DMT Was found in 1987 with the purpose to be part of the huge environmental clean-up.The demand for groundwater purification began to grow and so did DMT. Over the years DMT has developed numerous technologies to handle all kind of environmental issues.
Today DMT has offices in Europe, Asia, Canada and the United States of America to achieve our challenge;
to create the clear and prosperous future.
