DescriptionThe general objective of this project is to promote GHG emissions reduction by generation and efficient use of biogas from livestock manure, agro-industrial residual biomass and mitigation of soil and water pollution. Several biogas uses will be explored such as electric power generation, combined heat applications and substitute for fuel for transportation. The specific objective is to promote i) power generation and sell power to connection to public electricity grid; (ii) CHP applications and other non electric uses of energy, and (iii) production of purified and compressed biogas as a substitute for natural gas for vehicles. All this applications will contribute to achieve a low-carbon agro-industrial sector and contribute to reduce GHG emissions from the agro processing sector in Argentina.
