Banner Image

Platts, part of S&P Global Commodity Insights, Feb. 20 launched daily assessments for crop feedstock biomethane guarantees of origin (GOs) in the UK, and for manure feedstock biomethane GOs in Denmark and the Netherlands.

The new daily assessments are for current-year and year-ahead vintages for both the UK crop and Denmark/Netherlands manure assessments, with a minimum trade volume for assessment of 1 GWh.

They include carbon intensity (CI) value definitions for crop and manure.

The CI value definition range for the UK crop biomethane GO assessments is for certificates with an associated CI value of higher than 25.00 g Co2e/MJ with no maximum.

Platts understands that biomethane of significantly higher carbon intensity do not receive GOs.

For manure biomethane GO assessments in Denmark and the Netherlands, the CI definition is for values lower than minus 85.00 g Co2e/MJ.

Existing assessments for European biomethane GOs, with CI from 25.00 to 0 g CO2e/MJ, are relabeled as waste.

The UK crop assessments are published in GBP/MWh and Eur/MWh, while the Denmark and Netherlands manure assessments are published in Eur/MWh.

The assessments are published at a 4:30 pm London timestamp.

Infographic: South American corn supply hits global grains outlook

South America's grain supply, particularly that of corn, remains one of the most volatile in the world. In 2022-23, Argentinian corn output fell nearly 29% following drought before jumping 26% over 2023-24, in light of the El Nino phenomenon. Similarly, favorable weather lifted Brazilian corn output by about 17% in 2022-23, before it retreated 16% in 2023-24 amid varying weather conditions. South American corn prospects play a major role in deciding the global grains outlook, so much so that the International Grains Council has linked all revisions to its output forecast to potential supplies from the region.
