- landfill gas, formed by the digestion of landfilled wastes,

- sewage sludge gas, produced from the anaerobic fermentation of sewage sludge,

- other biogases:

- agricultural biogas obtained from anaerobic digestion of biomass from energy crops, residues from crop production and animal manure;

- biogas obtained from anaerobic digestion of biomass from wastes of slaughterhouses, breweries and from other activities in agricultural and food manufacturing.
