Integrated biogas systems: local applications of anaerobic digestion towards integrated sustainable solutions

McCabe, Bernadette K. ORCID: and Schmidt, Thomas (2018) Integrated biogas systems: local applications of anaerobic digestion towards integrated sustainable solutions. Technical Report. IEA Bioenergy . [Report]


Biogas and anaerobic digestion can positively contribute to several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This report produced by IEA Bioenergy Task 37, addresses local applications of integrated biogas concepts. Through case studies, examples of technical solutions, concepts, and strategies, which pertain to sustainable biogas production, are provided. Data has been gathered on anaerobic digestion facilities from seven countries with a focus on developing countries or countries with an emerging biogas sector which are not dependent or have little reliance on financial support. The case stories demonstrate that there is no ‘ideal’ integrated solution, as each anaerobic digestion application has different feedstocks available, constraints and end products. What needs to be considered and encouraged is adaption of exemplar systems, which suit individual situations.
