Sustainable Biogas – Climate and Environmental Effects of Biogas Production

March 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am UTC-4

This webinar will provide an overview of a report prepared under a contract between the Danish Energy Agency (DEA) and Aarhus University concerning the project ‘Sustainable biogas – climate and environmental effects of biogas production’. The project was initiated by the DEA’s bioenergy task force and was released in January 2020. The report presents an analysis of the effects of biogas production based on livestock manure and various relevant types of biomasses from waste management and agriculture. The effects are described for five model biogas production plants with different biomass compositions.

The extent of the greenhouse gas and environmental impacts of biogas depends on the production characteristics, including, in particular, the biomasses used. Moreover, factors such as transport, process energy consumption, and any methane loss from the plant are included in this analysis. The quantification of the greenhouse gas and environmental impacts of biogas production constitutes an important basis for designing and targeting future biogas funding in order to optimise the climate and environmental benefits of the production.
