Resolution of the Council of Ministers No. 41/2024 approving the Action Plan for Biomethane 2024-2040.

Type of law

This Resolution of the Council of Ministers approves the Action Plan for Biomethane 2024-2040 (PAB). In line with this strategic vision, the following general objectives were defined: To enable strategic sectors to take advantage of the biogas potentiality in order to implement an internal biomethane market; Consolidate the development of the national biomethane market as a strategic vector for decarbonization and the bioeconomy; Build a sustainable sector from a social and environmental point of view. In this context, the PAB 2024-2040 establishes an integrated and sustained strategy for the development of the biomethane market in Portugal. This strategy foresees two phases, with different time horizons: a first phase that aims to create a biomethane market in Portugal, and a second phase that aims to reinforce and consolidate the biomethane market in Portugal. Additionally, a complementary axis is also presented, which will be transversal to the use of biomethane at national level, which aims to guarantee social and environmental sustainability.
