Abstrakt

The organic production is based around principles regarding sustainability, however the production is still dependent on fossil fuels and import of manure from the conventional agriculture to fertilize the crops with nitrogen. Biogas production based on clover grass is a possible solution to these two dependencies. The project report names this organic biogas. So far only one biogas plant in Denmark with clover grass as the main feed has been constructed. This project report sets out to investigate which obstacles, which exist for a further implementation of organic biogas. This point of departure happens with the aim to produce a white paper, a document containing concrete recommendations on how to minimize and overcome these obstacles. Reports and literature about biogas, especially organic, are used to build up and present background knowledge about the problem field. Empiric data has been gathered through interviews with main stakeholders and professionals, which are connected to organic biogas. The data, gathered from the empirical research and the literature, is used to identify the obstacles for further implementation of organic biogas. Network theory is then used to analyze, how to minimize or overcome these obstacles. Through the research, that has been carried out, an array of concrete obstacles has been identified. In the white paper, that works as the conclusion of the project report, one or more recommendations to each obstacle are formulated and suggested. Among the recommendations the project report finds it important, that an effort is made to introduce cheaper biogas plants, that the income potential from biogas production is improved, and that development to improve the biogas technology regarding fermentation of clover grass is carried out.
