Issues and choices
The potential of biogas production in Poland is significant. Abundant potential sources of biomass exist, from dedicated crops and agricultural reside to organic industrial and urban waste. To date, this potential has been under-exploited, mainly due to low awareness of renewable energy in general, the absence of a legal framework for optimal biogas production and use, and also of pricing incentives.
Solutions and operational models developed within the Biogasmax project could be used to promote the use of biogas in transport.In Poland, waste water plants and landfills still burn off most of the biogas in flare stacks. If biogas is retrieved, it is usually used to produce electric and thermal energy.
