Workshop on innovative solutions for small and medium biogas plants

The workshop took place on the 29th November 2017 during the Energy Expo Arena in Ostróda, Poland and gathered more than 30 stakeholders - biogas producers, investors seeking information on biogas use, suppliers of technologies and feedstock for biogas plants, as well as scientific units, local government, or potential investors wishing to build a biogas plant.

The innovative technologies presented during the workshop were related to substrate pre-treatment, fermentation processes and biogas upgrading. In addition, issues related to acquiring financial resources for biogas investments were presented.

The workshop event contribiuted to the integration of business entities and research units interested in cooperation and the development of promising technologies in the sector of small and medium biogas plants, as well as searching for new solutions in the field of biogas.

Technical workshop on biomethane production in small and medium scale units

Record Biomap Biomethane Network Technical Workshop on Biomethane Production in Small and Medium Scale Units on 28.03.2017 in Leipzig, Germany


The workshop took place on 28 March 2017 in Leipzig, Germany and gathered more than 30 stakeholders from the biogas / biomethane sector. 

The workshop presented innovative technology solutions for biogas pre-treatment, digestion and systems for upgrading the biogas to so-called biomethane, which has the potential to replace natural gas or can be used as "green" vehicle fuel.

So far biomethane production has only established in large scale applications, as there are still many challenges to be solved in order to make small to medium scale biomethane production economically feasible and widely accessible to European farmers. Therefore, this workshop presented and discussed some promising technology solutions and brought together technology developers with potential end users.
