agriportance is a Münster-based biomethane start-up that specialises in monitoring sustainability certification and buying and selling biomethane. Using greenhouse gas software, producers can create their carbon footprint on a monthly basis according to the strict requirements of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED). In addition, the software provides mass balances and enables secure and easy document storage and preparation. In a fair and efficient matchmaking process, agriportance brings producers and buyers of biomethane together, usually for a period of 7 years.
