The purpose of this work is to promote the sustainable production of renewable energy from the biogas obtained from agrifood waste in small-scale concepts for pursuing energy self-sufficiency.
Stakeholders were interviewed and two different questionnaires were offered: the first for agrifood industries, the second for biogas plants and component providers. Information obtained was elaborated to have a view of wastage amounts in agrifood sector and get information of available small-scale biogas plants.
Obtained data were used in different project phases: for Smallbiogas calibration (a web application to facilitate small-scale biogas plant business plan setup), plant models calibration and to write Biogas3 Handbook.
The activities of this work were based on Biogas3 project, co-funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Union Contract N° IEE-13-477.
