Biogas is the circular economy's first great opportunity
- Published: Wednesday, 13 April 2016 08:36
No plant can grow without phosphorus, and the world's phosphorus mines will be emptied within the foreseeable future. It is thus nothing short of essential that we work on achieving a circular economy, where nutrients are maintained in the cycle. The EU commission has come up with an action plan that is aimed at making it easier for biogas plants to undertake this important task.

The exploitation of excess heat from electricity production is often what is needed to make the business case more attractive for many biogas projects. In addition to traditional space heating, the heat can be used for many other purposes, including the drying of biomass, industrial process heating – or the heat can be converted into chilled water in a cooling plant. Xergi has built biogas plants with all these methods of application.
