Final Report - CROPGEN (Renewable energy from crops and agrowastes)

Project ID: 502824
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This is the final report of the CROPGEN project. This research aimed to produce from biomass a sustainable fuel source that can be integrated into the existing energy infrastructure in the medium term, and in the longer term will also provide a safe and economical means of supplying the needs of a developing hydrogen fuel economy. The work was based on the use of anaerobic digestion (AD) as a means of producing methane from biomass, including energy crops and agricultural residues.

The document begins with a summary of the project's objectives and findings. It later analyses the experiments conducted and the results obtained. For each case the conclusions and recommendations are presented. The report concludes with an overall assessment of the methods tested for energy production and then a table with dissemination and use of the knowledge.
