Biogas Poland

Biogas Poland was a new addition to the Green Power Biogas series which started in October 2006 in Vienna, and has continued with 11 other events in the series to date globally.

Biogas Poland explored the opportunities and challenges in the country focusing around the three main types of biogas production.  Currently the main sources of biogas production in Poland are landfills and wastewater treatment plants.  Agriculture biogas plants are in the minority but with over 300 agricultural plants are in the planning stage the sector is set for rapid growth.

Poland established a target of 14% of energy production from renewable energy sources by 2020.  This aggresive target combined with economic growth provides an encouraging investment atmosphere for renewable energy developers.  It is estimated that the potential for biogas plants and natural waste processing facilities in Poland is around 90% of the size of the German market which creates many opportunities.
