About the speech:

In Italy the interest for biomethane is very high. Biomethane is considered an advanced biofuel and can contribute to the decarbonisation of the Italian transport sector. The Italian government, during the next Summer, will publish a new subsidy scheme for biomethane production that will surely allow the start of the business.
