Guarantees of Origin (GOs)
Each MWh of 100% renewable gas will result in the issuance of a guarantee of origin with information on where, when and how the gas was produced. Consequently, the guarantees will give you an added value when it comes to marketing it that will encourage its consumption, with the consequent environmental benefit.

At Grupo GreenWay Bioprocesos we are committed to reducing the carbon footprint of companies.

Carbon Footprint

The carbon footprint is a measure of the impact that human activities have on climate change. It refers to the total amount of greenhouse gases (GHG), especially carbon dioxide (CO2), emitted directly or indirectly by a person, organization, event or product throughout its life cycle.

 

The carbon footprint is typically expressed in metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e). This means that other greenhouse gases besides CO2 are taken into account, such as methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), which are converted to their CO2 equivalent based on their global warming potential.

 

There are two types of carbon footprint: primary and secondary. The primary carbon footprint refers to the direct CO2 emissions that we have control over, such as those produced by the use of fuels in our homes or in the transportation we use.

 

On the other hand, the secondary carbon footprint takes into account the indirect emissions generated throughout the life cycle of the products we use, whether they are food or technology. This includes emissions related to the manufacture and disposal of those products.

 

The plants that GreenWay Bioprocesses develops will produce Bio-LNG from biomethane gas and Biofertilizers from BioCO2, generating the corresponding certificate of Guarantee of Origin, which will guarantee that biofuels and biofertilizers have been produced from a reduction of GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions.

The Government approves the system of guarantees of origin for renewable gases:

 

- A Royal Decree will make it possible to identify and certify gases of renewable origin, such as biogas or hydrogen, with a system similar to that applied to renewable electricity.

 

- The new regulation will create a Census of Gas Production Facilities from renewable sources and a Producers Committee.

 

- The Government incorporates the sustainability and greenhouse gas emission reduction criteria of EU regulations for biofuels, bioliquids and biomass fuels.

 

- The Royal Decree also sets new targets for biofuels in transport, which will reach 12% of consumption by 2026.

The creation of this system of guarantees of origin was foreseen in several indicative planning tools, such as the National Energy and Climate Plan 2021-2030 (PNIEC), the Hydrogen Roadmap and the Biogas Roadmap, as well as in the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan.

The idea behind the CO2 Guarantee of Origin is to provide transparency and ensure that energy generated from renewable sources is produced and consumed in a sustainable manner. It allows consumers and businesses to demonstrate that they are using clean energy and contributing to the reduction of GHG emissions.

 

In a CO2 Guarantee of Origin system, a certificate is issued for each megawatt hour (MWh) of renewable energy generated or each ton of CO2 equivalent that has been reduced.

 

These certificates contain information on the energy source used (such as solar, wind, hydro, biomass, etc.) and the associated emission reductions.

 

Each MWh of 100% renewable gas will result in the issuance of a guarantee of origin with information on where, when and how the gas was produced. Consequently, the guarantees will give you an added value when it comes to marketing it that will encourage its consumption, with the consequent environmental benefit.

 

Guarantees of origin will certify the volume of gas and its quality, as it will differentiate between hydrogen obtained from renewable energy, biomethane, biogas or other gases, and will cover any renewable gas produced and consumed, whether on-siteself-consumed, and whether or not injected into the pipeline network.

 

Guarantees of Origin GoOs

Guarantee of Origin certificates allow your company to:

Document renewable gas consumption and reliably claim GHG emission reductions.

Trace the origin of gas or liquid biofuels produced by liquefaction.

Obtain renewable gas or green LNG in more than 25 countries within the European single market.

Comply with corporate environmental standards.

Following EU renewable energy regulations and improving its sustainability rating

Be more attractive to investors, customers and potential employees.

Contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Guarantees of Origin are market tools that encourage the use of renewable energy. As energy demand continues to increase in Europe, these guarantees provide energy producers with an additional source of revenue, giving them an incentive to build more renewable energy facilities and contribute to a faster transition to clean sources.

 

When a company uses gas from renewable sources and documents this consumption through Guarantees of Origin, this also makes it more attractive to investors. In addition, it generates loyalty among a growing proportion of environmentally conscious customers.

Through the use of biofuels and biofertilizers, our customers can bring energy efficiency to their production processes, while reducing their fuel costs and carbon footprint. Want to know how? Here's how.
