Conference: Biogas Poland
15. - 16. May 2012
Biogas Poland is a new addition to our Biogas series of conferences, which started in October 2006 in Vienna, and has continued with 11 other events in the series to date globally.
Biogas Poland 2012 will explore the opportunities and challenges in the country around the three main types of biogas production. Currently the main sources of biogas production in Poland are landfills and wastewater treatment plants. Agriculture biogas plants are in the minority but over 300 agricultural plants are in the planning stage and the sector is set for rapid growth.
Poland has established a target of 14% of energy production from renewable energy sources by 2020. This aggresive target combined with economic growth provides an encouraging investment atmosphere for renewable energy developers. It is estimated that the potential for biogas plants and natural waste processing facilities in Poland is around 90% of the size of the German market which creates many opportunities.
