Special Issue in Energies: Production and Utilization of Biogas 2020
Biogas, although it is a mature renewable energy technology, still requires financial incentivization of commercial plants or end uses. Shortages of locally-available, very cheap digestible feedstocks restrain biogas productivity, so that biogas plants with a capacity greater than 1 MW are difficult to construct and operate in truly competitive markets. Research into innovations that could improve economic viability and resource flexibility of biogas technology is therefore needed. Potential improvements must be sought in the whole value chain of biogas: Cheaper feedstock production and collection including wastes, enhanced fermentation techniques, novel products that can be derived from feedstock processing or biogas, new end uses, integration with other technologies, market organization, etc. This Special Issue aims at encouraging researchers to address challenges associated with biogas production and utilization. It seeks research reports and innovative solutions that could contribute to the further development of biogas technology. In addition, the submission of review papers that systematically evaluate advances in biogass production and utilizaton with an emphasis on technological excellence and realistic commercial potential are also invited.Dr. Wojciech Budzianowski
