Biofuels and Biorefineries

Last changed: 10 December 2018

The 1st international GCUA workshop "Biofuels and Biorefineries", took place at SLU in Uppsala, September 26-28, 2012.

The unique biogas system includes both generation of energy and waste treatment. The biogas, consisting of methane and carbon dioxide, can be used as fuel for vehicles, heating and to generate electricity.  The biogas system works both at large and small scales which makes it interesting for both industrialized and developing countries.
