Biogas is produced from various biomass sources through a biochemical process, such as anaerobic digestion, or through thermochemical means, such as gasification. With minor cleanup, biogas can be used to generate heat, cold, electricity and fertilizer. Dr. Thomas Trendelenberg will explain biogas production, its application in the US and Europe, and the role of biogas as a significant renewable, sustainable energy source.
