In the context of the Paris Agreement, several countries have set forth ambitious global goals aimed at stabilizing and reducing carbon emissions. One of the primary avenues to accomplish these goals is through the concept of energy transition. Within the scope of this study, energy transition is defined as the progression towards economically sustainable and renewable energy technologies, which play a crucial role in mitigating the impacts of climate change. Researchers have engaged in extensive discourse regarding the viability of biogas as a viable fuel source for hydrogen production. This discourse underscores the considerable potential of biogas in waste energy management and harnessing. This research undertakes a comprehensive literature review that delves into the multifaceted role of biogas in achieving cost-effective and ecologically sound hydrogen production. This investigation pays particular attention to nations undergoing development, such as Brazil, which possess significant, yet untapped, biogas potential, the process of biogas reformulation emerges as a highly promising approach not only for hydrogen gas generation but also for mitigating the demand for natural gas. This strategy holds the potential to significantly contribute to the global goals of the energy transition and the global reduction of carbon emissions.
