Biogas plants: what impact on my local community?

Download the document

Living in an area that hosts a biogas plant can raise concerns about: safety, noise, odour or local transport, but here is why these are not to be worried about. First and foremost, biogas plants are often large-scale plants that are obliged to comply with safety requirements and environmental risk aspects, and minimise the impact on the local community.

This flyer has been developed by the EBA in the framework of the Systemic project. Systemic addresses the challenge by identifying innovative approaches to recover and recycle valuable mineral components from organic waste streams into new products and integrate them optimally into a local or regional circular economy. The project utilizes and enhances actual business cases and logistics of biogas plants together with the most advanced proven nutrient recovery technologies in order to realize five innovative large scale demonstration plants, producing mineral nutrients and fertilizers for the regional market.
