"Biogas2030" shows concepts for the biogas plant stock

As the EEG fixed remuneration will expire by 2030 for a large number of plants, new requirements will also arise for biogas plants. The aim of the "Biogas2030" project was to show ecologically and economically sensible plant concepts for the biogas plant stock. The final report is available at www.dbfz.de/biogas2030.
