Business opportunities for sustainable biogas production

Conventional biogas production processes are not only lacking in sustainability, they also involve high costs. The Biogas2Market approach, is innovative,  adds to sustainable development and offers great business opportunities at the same time.

Conventional biogas production chains, including the cultivation of raw materials, leakage conversion and storage systems; lead to the emission of strong greenhouse gases, such as methane and nitrogen oxide. They can therefore hardly be called sustainable, considering their environmental impacts.  They are not an attractive business offer, as the costs for investment and raw material are high and the biogas market price is relatively low. Significant financial governmental support is still required to make the traditional biogas production market competitive.
