Delegation Visit to Germany: Bioenergy from biogenic residue and waste matter
This delegation visit is designed as a study tour to inform Indian companies and Decision Makers about the latest technologies and solutions and ‘Best Practices’ in the above field.
The Indo-German Chamber of Commerce (IGCC) is organizing a Fact-Finding Mission to Germany from 20th to 24th May 2019 on the topic of Bioenergy (esp. Biogas) from Biogenic Residue and Waste Material. This delegation visit is designed as a study tour to inform Indian companies and Decision Makers about the latest technologies and solutions and ‘Best Practices’ in the above field.
This project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative and planned in cooperation with Baden-Württemberg International
Who could participate in the trip?
The decision-makers related to the biogas sector such as Project Developers, EPC Companies, Consultants, Research Institutes, Policy-makers and Regulators. Industries for which it is relevant are waste management (solid and liquid), agriculture, dairy, food and beverage (including sugar) and others generating biogenic waste.
With over 9,400 biogas plants and an annual turnover of around 9.3 billion Euros, the biogas industry in Germany is an established sector in terms of renewable energies. The installed electric capacity of 4,843 MW supplies over 9.5 million households all across the country and accounts for a reduction of over 20 million tons of CO2 emissions annually. In 2016, electricity generated from biogas (including biomethane) reached around 32,370 GWh. This corresponds to 17.2% of gross electricity generation from renewable energies. Biogas and biomethane are furthermore responsible for over 10.4% of the total 168.1 billion kWh heat production from renewable energies for end-consumption. The major substrate inputs are agricultural residue, cattle manure and other biogenic waste (food & organic matter) and municipal waste.
Highlights of the program:
• Workshop with German Experts to gain knowledge about the German regulatory framework conditions and to gain insight into various processes and technological developments
• Visit to biogas plants with various substrates such as municipal (solid/liquid), agricultural and industrial waste
• Visit to biogas upgradation and/or co-generation plants
• Visit to a renowned Research Institute
• Interaction with policymakers, regulators and decision makers
• Networking event with industry representatives
