Tags:
BiG>East promotes biogas production and utilization as a secure, sustainable and competitive energy source in Eastern Europe. This is achieved by knowledge transfer from project partners with extensive, long-term expertise to six target countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Latvia, Romania, and Slovenia. The core of the proposed action is biogas training courses for farmers and mobilisation campaigns for decision makers. High quality training handbooks will be elaborated in order to support the training courses. Promising sites for biogas production will be identified and these Biogas Show Cases will be promoted to decision makers through mobilization campaigns. In each target country three training courses and two mobilization campaigns will be implemented. The objective is to provide the six target countries in Eastern Europe with newest information and expertise about innovative and cost-effective biogas production technologies in order to initiate the construction of new biogas plants in Eastern Europe.
