, according to a report by Sedigas and PwC, has the potential to produce 163 terawatt-hours (TWh) of biomethane annually, nearly half of the country's consumption. Promoting the production and consumption of biomethane is seen as a key strategy in Spain's efforts to decarbonise its energy sector effectively.

The agreement between Lecta and Naturgy underscores Lecta's commitment to sustainability and enhances the competitiveness of its Spanish production units. This partnership reflects a broader trend towards decarbonisation among industrial players, positioning biomethane as a pivotal component in achieving environmental goals.
