Abstract [en]

There is a need for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the transporting sector. With apotential of 3-7 TWh per year, farm based production of biomethane can be a solution forthis problem. The small farm based biogas plants have a problem using the produced heatin an efficient way and today 29 % of the biogas is flared or not used. The projects aimwas to investigate the technical and economic conditions for small scale biogasplants (witha production smaller then 5-6 GWh/year). The actors connected to building the technicalsystem and selling the biomethane was identified. To analyze the economic conditionsfurther, four different business models was created and analyzed with the business modelcanvas tool and a SWOT-analysis. A technical system was designed for each businessmodel. The result showed that the technical solutions existed and that there is a market forthe equipment and the selling of biomethane. The economic conditions were also good, buttoday these business models depend on the economic support from the government. This isa problem when making investments, because there is no long term guarantee that theeconomic support will be the same during the depreciation period. The specific investmentcosts are lower for biogas plants with a production of 1 GWh/year, but with a smallerplant, 0,5 GWh/year, there are less demands in terms of permissions.
