Everything you need to know about biogas and its potential
For the European gas sector there is only one future and it is called decarbonisation. The most straightforward way to decarbonise natural gas streams is by replacing it with different types of “renewable” gas, such as biogas or biomethane. This Intensive Course is in cooperation with the European Biogas Association, Enterprise Europe Network, and takes place at Agromek; Northern Europe’s Largest Agricultural Fair in Denmark.
During this intensive course, in cooperation with the European Biogas Association, Enterprise Europe Network, the biogas value chain, its aspects, future and best practices from frontrunner Denmark and different European legislative opportunities will be discussed. A site visit to Agromek; the Northern Europe’s Largest Agricultural Fair in Denmark is included.
How you benefit
- Get an overview of the complete biogas value chain
- Identify new opportunities in biogas
- Network with experts and peers
- Free Access to Agromek 2022
- Site visit to the Nature Energy Månsson plant in Aarhus
This programme is in cooperation with:
About the programme
This Intensive Course shows the biogas to biomethane value chain and the different opportunities it offers. On the first day the different aspects of the value chain will be discussed: technical, economic, and societal possibilities and how to upscale. On the second day the European perspective and possibilities will be discussed by the European Biogas Association, combined with a visit to the Agromek Fair. On the third day you will get some real-life examples, through the Dutch and Danish case and a site visit to the Nature Energy Månsson plant.
