As a result of the LFG Baltic project the experiences of landfill gas extraction and utilisation in Lithuania, Poland and Sweden have been compiled in a report. Furthermore two innovative landfill gas technologies developed in Denmark and Iceland have been added.
The information has been gathered by Dr. Andrius Tamosiunas, deputy director Lithuanian Energy Institute, Dr. Robert Aranowski, Gdansk University of Technology and Dr. Jörgen Held, CEO Baltic Energy Innovation Centre. International landfill gas experts, invited to the LFG Baltic seminar organised in collaboration with REGATEC 2019, have contributed with important input.
As a result of the European Landfill Directive less and less organic material is landfilled and by time the methane content in the landfill gas decreases. In order to take advantage of the energy content in the extracted landfill gas technologies able to use landfill gas with low methane content are of great interest. In the report several such technologies are presented, such as Micro turbines, Stirling engines, dual fuel engines and thermal oxidisers.
The 2nd COASTAL Biogas conference takes place 13 November at Roskilde University, Denmark. The next day (14 Nov) there is a study tour to Solrød biogas plant. Solrød is the only facility in the Baltic Sea region (perhaps in the world) where cast seaweed is co-digested in industrial scale.
The conference including the lunch and the coffee breaks and the study tour are free of charge but limited to 50 participants.

The Baltic Energy Innovation Centre Annual General Meeting takes place at Scandic Triangeln on the 19th of May.
The 1st COASTAL Biogas conference takes place 8 May at Radisson Blu, Malmö, Sweden. The next day (9 May) there is a study tour to Jordberga biogas facility. Jordberga is one of the biggest biogas plants in Sweden (110 GWh/year) and the only with injection into the high pressure natural gas grid.
The conference including the lunch and the coffee breaks are free of charge but limited to 50 participants.

On the 22nd of November 2018 the first COASTAL Biogas steering group meeting (SGM) took place at Gdansk University of Technology (GUT), Poland.
From left: Tyge Kjaer and Michelle Hansen (RUC), Sebastian Foth (UROS), Anne Roßmann (FNR), Jörgen Held, (BEIC), Frank Scholwin, (UROS), Andrius Tamosiunas and Nerijus Striugas (LEI) and Robert Aranowski, (GUT). Jan Hupka and Iwona Kopcynska (GUT) participated in the meeting but are not present in the picture.
The meeting was opened by the project coordinator Anne Roßmann (FNR), followed by presentations of the WP leaders. The interactions between the WPs were reviewed in detail and crosslinks were elucidated. The gathering was also used to lively discuss issues, such as requirements of seaweed collection methods on beaches and in marinas, technologies for pretreatment of seaweed prior to anaerobic digestion in biogas plants and options for developing a training kit for project stakeholders. The meeting was rounded off with a study tour in the GUT biogas laboratories.
On the 11th of October Gdansk University formally became a member of the Baltic Energy Innovation Centre.
We are happy to welcome such a distinguished partner as Gdansk University of Technology and to increase the geographical representation among the members to include Poland.
The members are a good starting point when building a project consortium to apply for public funding of transnational projects.
