Germany demonstrates the viability of rural biogas

Although IFAT 2010 in Munich (Germany), one of the most important environmental equipment and services trade fairs in the world, is still nine months away, the German biogas industry has started preparing for this event by clearly stating its strengths: 4,500 plants (95% industrial) and half the electricity production in the European Union.The organisers of IFAT 2010 (13-17 September 2010) present Germany as the leader of the European Union's biogas industry and therefore advise industry players to attend the biannual event in Munich to find out about the latest biogas systems and technologies. According to data published by Fachverband Biogas (Germany’s biogas trade association), 4,500 plants were in operation in Germany at the end of 2009; 95% of which use waste from crop and livestock farms such as slurry, manure and energy crops.In contrast to other countries where most biogas is produced using organic municipal waste, Germany relies mainly on farms for its raw material. This country has also proven the viability of producing biogas using organic waste from the food industry.
