ALFA is set on unlocking the potential of biogas production from livestock farming to enhance the wider uptake of RES and increase the share of bioenergy as a baseload energy source while ensuring reduced emissions from untreated manure and supporting the creation of new jobs and revenue for the livestock farming industry.
During its three years, the project will support at least 50 livestock farmers in 6 EU counties (Greece, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Belgium, and Slovakia) to overcome existing barriers and viably take up biogas solutions whilst providing a more informed basis for citizens, stakeholders, and policymakers by unveiling biogas market dynamics, facts, and perceptions.
Upscale the biogas production from livestock farming as an alternative renewable source of energy
The potential of biogas as an alternative renewable source of energy remains highly untapped. The target of more sustainable and clean energy solutions by 2030, along with the increasing need for a secure and competitive energy supply, made essential the utilization of different renewable sources of energy
Biogas production can offer both economic and environmental benefits. By utilizing manure for biogas production, livestock farmers can secure an additional source of income, while they can also use the biogas for covering the farm’s electricity, heat and transport needs. Overall, the widespread adoption of biogas as a source of energy will contribute to a more sustainable and self-sufficient energy sector in Europe, and its citizens will be able to utilize innovative methods for the management of their livestock farms..
ALFA sets to facilitate the integration of theory and practical implementation in the exploration of biogas production from livestock farming.
The project offers a cutting-edge and engaging framework to establish a biogas network, enhance and spread knowledge on biogas solutions, and provide biogas-related technical and business services to the market.
