Pump up the biogas!

Our climate can’t handle the current situation in the world anymore. We must come up with new resources and procedures to put in to use. One of the most concrete possibilities is to increase the usage of biogas as energy. Biogas is a local product that can be produced from agricultural by-products. It is climate friendly and it refreshes regional economies. When talking about energy, electricity often steals the spotlight from biogas.

The challenge here is how can the usage and production of biogas be boosted. How to create a market for biogas’ raw materials, the by-products of agriculture, for example through kiertoasuomesta.fi ? How can a possibility of local biogas become a success story?
