EU project treats agro waste for biogas

The large amount of agricultural waste generated in the EU each year is a headache for farmers who are obliged to get rid of it. The treatments they use tend to be cheap but inadequate. An alternative treatment is the use of biogas via anaerobic digestion (using microorganisms to break down the material in the absence of oxygen). The biogas treatment effectively fuels energy and nutrient recovery, with the added bonus of preventing pollution. The AGROBIOGAS project, backed by the EU with EUR 2.9 million in funding, set its sights on developing this technology, which offers an effective way to treat agricultural waste while being a realistic option for farmers.
