A brief explanation of one aspect of the COASTAL Biogas project – Biogas from cast seaweed and algae. Excess seaweed and algae are a problem for the Baltic Sea. One solution is to collect it and use it for renewable energy. At the same time eutrophication is mitigated since nutrients are physically removed from the sea/beach. #interregsouthbaltic #eutrophication #biogas

Jörgen Held, BEIC and Jens Bo Holm-Nielsen, Aalborg University were appointed to the assessment committee in relation to the PhD defense by Cristina Landt at Roskilde University.
The thesis, “Forretningsmodeller for biogas – I et cirkulært økonomisk perspektiv”, deals with the development of the Danish biogas sector and five biogas facilities using manure as co-substrate are analysed in detail in terms of ownership, business model, input and output streams, process parameters and economy.
Jörgen Held was invited to present the COASTAL Biogas project at the GREATER Bio digital seminar on the 17th of September in Malmö. Sonia Denkiewicz, Skåne Energy Agency opened the seminar, Jens Almqvist, KRINOVA presented the CONTRA project and Tyge Kjaer, Roskilde University presented the Solröd Biogas plant.
