Planning local, sustainable systems

In Finland and Estonia, the production of biogas is still on a modest level. There are, however, possibilities to turn the waste management as well as transport fuel production towards sustainable regional systems. Far reaching decisions are now being made in these issues in both countries.

From Waste to Traffic Fuel project is working in six case areas. An optimal network for biogas production will be planned for each area, considering the sources of biodegradable material, logistics as well as distribution and use of biogas and the digested material.

The amount of biodegradable material from all sources, from the industry and service sectors as well as from households, will be assessed for the basis of the regional plans. The project will estimate the biogas potential, the availability and sustainability, of biowaste, manure, sludge as well as energy crops.

Finally, the project will carry out the environmental, economic and regional assessment of the plans.
