DVGW German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water
The DVGW’s technical standards ensure a high-quality gas and water supply for Germany. The DVGW assists gas and water enterprises with the cost-effective implementation of technical measures necessary for maintaining Germany’s clean, secure gas and water supply. As a setter of technical standards, the DVGW with its more than 13,000 members is instrumental in defining collaborative processes designed to improve these enterprises, and to ensure effective, autonomous industrial management under rapidly changing conditions.
With respect to biogas, the DVGW takes a holistic approach to setting gas and water standards: the focus is on supply security, supply diversity, sustained access to native energy sources, and the gradual development of processes for producing biomass energy from the most commonly used plants.
