The overall goal of the project is to reduce dependency on oil, reduce greenhouse gases and direct emissions through increased and more efficient production, distribution and use of biogas in the transport sector generated from a wide variety of feedstock available in urban areas and regions in Europe. The project adopts the well-to-wheel approach to identify the potential for efficiency gains and cost optimisation to ensure market expansion. BIOGASMAX anticipates making a strong response to the EC policy objective to replace 20% of petroleum-based fuels in the transport sector with 5 - 8% biofuels, 10% natural gas, and 2% hydrogen.
During the 4-year life of the project, BIOGASMAX aims to:
-prove the technical reliability, cost-effectiveness, environmental and societal benefits of biogas fuels;
-perform large-scale demonstrations to optimise industrial processes, experiment and benchmark new and near-to market techniques and expand biogas fleets;
