Biogas plants, large common plants as well as the smaller plants for single farms, have many pos-itive environmental effects, including reduced nitrogen leaching and fewer odors. Moreover, it is often economically beneficial to set up a biogas plant.
The biogas is sold to Cogeneration plants, industrial companies, the natural gas grid (when upgraded), consumed locally in a CHP-plant in order to produce electricity and heat or converted to fuels in a Power to X process. Selling to transport systems or ferry services via the natural gas network is also an intriguing possibility, which is being developed. Biogas production from manure is socioeconomically the cheapest way to reduce CO2 emissions.
