BIOGAS, A NEW PROJECT COMPLETED - RRV - LK-NRW

 

A project on the use of sugar beet in biogas plants, carried out from 2011 to 2013 by the Rhineland Beet Growers’ Association (RRV) and the Agrarian Chamber of North-Rhine Westphalia (LK-NRW), has been completed.

 

The project compared gas and dry matter yields of maize and sugar beet in different locations but also examined different beet storage systems and determined gas losses and process costs.
