Project: Energetic utilisation of agricultural residues in China and Germany (ChinaRes)

Within the scope of the Sino-German working group, the knowledge about energetic utilization of agricultural residues shall be merged. The project objectives are (a) to identify the barriers for the use of different agricultural residues from animal and plant production, (b) to develop conceptual proposals for a better design and a coordinated operation of barns and biogas plants, and (c) to edit the project results in a way that they can be provided to the wider public. Sino-German workshops for exchange of knowledge about the state of the art of technology and research are planned as well as technical tours to best-case-plants in both countries in order to cross-link the stakeholder.

Main objectives:

  • To tap unused potential of agricultural residues like straw & manure
  • Reduction of emissions which occur during the storage of manure
  • Cross-linking of Chinese and German stakeholder of the biogas sector
