Biogas Plants in Asia - Waste To Energy

Mezzanine Loan

Biogas is produced by decomposing plant or animal materials with the help of bacteria while excluding oxygen (anaerobic). From biogas, electricity and heat can be produced directly on site in a combined heat and power plant or the biogas can be upgraded to natural gas quality and fed into the natural gas grid. The fermentation residues resulting from the decomposition can usually be used as fertiliser in agriculture. The generation of electricity from biogas is subsidised by the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). In the interest of the German Government's climate policy objectives and to strengthen security of supply, the feed-in of biogas from domestically produced biomass is to be facilitated. The Gas Grid Access Ordinance (GasNZV) provides the legal framework for the instruments of support for biogas feed-in.
