By order of Saar Ferngas AG, a company of the STEAG-group, the Wuppertal Institute will assess the regional potentials of biogas production and injection into the existing gas grid.
The project is a regionalization of the current study "Analysis and Assessment of Utilization Pathways of Biomass" on behalf of the German gas industry. The reference area is the supply sector of Saar Ferngas AG and therefore includes the Saarland as well as wide parts of Rhineland-Palatinate.
The aim of this project is to locate priority areas that can provide sufficient biomass potential as well as suitable locations for biogas plants and injection points for biogas into the natural gas grid.
The following key questions will be assessed:
