The overall goal of this project is reducing the impact on the environment by producing renewable energy production from biowaste products.
Main benefits of introducing biogas technologies into the structure of agro-industrial enterprises are are to transform biowaste material into a quality fertilaizer thus reducing waste, and providing valuable green energy.
The production of biogas plants in the Republic of Croatia is a very relevant and economically profitable investment, considering that currently there is a tendency for the development of the agricultural sector. The development of a national biogas sector contributes to increase the income in rural areas and creates new jobs
