The role of biogas production from industrial wastewaters in reaching climate neutrality by 2050
This paper has mapped the opportunities of producing biogas from industrial wastewaters and quantified the biogas production potential of different EU industry sectors. The results show that biogas has a high potential to mitigate methane emissions from wastewater whilst at the same time providing a huge potential source of renewable energy. This will reduce energy consumption at wastewater treatment installations, provide a solution for the management of sludge and create additional green jobs at local level.
The paper includes recommendations to untap the biogas potential from wastewaters.
