New biogas-handbook for organic farmers

Cover "Sustainable biogas production - A handbook for organic farmers"

"Sustainable biogas production - A handbook for organic farmers" is available in English, German, French, Bulgarian, Polish, Danish and Spanish.

Organic farmers considering investing in biogas production to improve farm income and contribute to the environmental sustainability of their farms now have new tools at hand.

The SUSTAINGAS Handbook:

  • gives a compact overview of concepts, farmers' perspectives and best practice examples for sustainable biogas production on organic farms
  • explores the agronomic and economic dimensions of biogas in organic farming
  • explains what steps to take for the biogas plant to benefit the environment
  • provides a step-by-step decision support, taking into account different biomass sources, plant sizes and ownership models for example
  • guides the user through the different efficiency benchmarks.

"Sustainable biogas production - A handbook for organic farmers" is available in English, German, French, Bulgarian, Polish, Danish and Spanish. It has been written and published by SUSTAINGAS, a project in the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Union focussed on enhancing sustainable biogas production in organic agriculture.
 
The handbook was launched at BIOFACH, the largest international fair for the organic food industry. It complements a series of tools available on the SUSTAINGAS website:

  • an economic calculation tool for biogas installations on organic farms
  • an analysis of sustainability criteria for biogas plants on organic farms
  • available soon: guidelines for sustainable biogas production on organic farms
