Utilization of Organic waste for Energy purposes - Phase 2

Project: Research

Project Details


The overall aim of the study was to develop a bioenergy concept
in a region with a relatively low amount of livestock, and thereby
manure, by including “alternative” biomass fractions such as
cast seaweed and organic waste from production of pectin
and carrageenan. Specific aims included:
• Determination of availability and suitability of organic
materials for biogas production
• Optimization of collection and pre-treatment of organic
• Development of technological and economical optimal
incorporation of energy production in the local energy
supply infrastructure
• Environmental assessment
• Evaluation of possibilities of utilization of de-gassed
