Abstract

The main idea of the DiBiCoo project is to trigger market uptake of biogas and biomethane projects through the initialisation of demo cases for the application of biogas/biomethane technologies in developing and emerging countries providing high biogas potential. This will be supported by interconected digital and non-digital support tools and decided stakeholder involvement. In the DiBiCoo project, the main focus is on biogas and biomethane value chains which are based on anaerobic digestion (AD) technologies. The value chains include feedstock sourcing (waste/residues management and logistics), conversion processes, use of the biogas and the digestate. Solid wastes and residues that cannot be treated by AD as a potential feedstock source, are also considered in DiBiCoo through small- scale gasification technologies for syngas production followed by combined heat and power generation. In that case, instead of digestate in the AD value chains, the use of ashes and char is considered in the value chain. Providers and manufacturers of both technologies are addressed in DiBiCoo and in case that potential projects on small-scale gasification are identified in WP3, selected demo cases of WP6 may also include this technology. As the main focus is on AD, all descriptions throughout the proposal are referred to “biogas” whereas syngas is also included, but not specifically mentioned. The overall approach of the DiBiCoo project is based on the cooperation between stakeholders from expoering countries (Europe) to importing countries (Argentina, Ethiophia, Ghana, Indonesia, and South Africa and others. Thereby, the key challenges in Europe are the currently decreasing numbers of new installed biogas in Europe as well as the European commintments to support emerging and developing countries. Therefore, the DiBiCoo project functions to bridge the need of know-how, technologies, funding of importing countries and thus provides new markets for exporting countries in the long run.
