Comparative investigations in large scale biogas plants – procedural, microbiological, ecological and economic evaluation and optimization
The project aims to optimize the energetic use of biomass and to enhance its sustainability. It focuses on
- further development of biogas technology in variety of substrates and process control
- ecological and economic evaluation of the enhanced technologies.
The framework for the use of biogenic residues needs to be improved. The profit of a biogas plant increases by the efficiency of the technology. In this context early warning systems in terms of process failures will be developed. They will allow the use of a variable substrate mix and provide a high performance operation.
The GFZ is the coordinator of the project. It consists of 6 scientific and 4 industrial partners.
