A new study published by Biogas Research Center illustrates the role of biogas solutions in the circular and bio-based economy. The report also includes an analysis of these benefits in relation to the UN’s 17 sustainability goals.
The study show substantial scientific support for the benefits with biogas solutions but also several gaps are revealed. Typically, nutrient circulation, circular economy, resource efficiency, organic farming are less well studied benefits. The reason for them being less studied may be their complexity and the “lack of ownership” among actors.
The analysis show that biogas solutions can contribute to all of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. This indicates that biogas solutions need to be studied and understood in a broad, cross-sectoral system perspective.
