How many anaerobic digesters are there in Europe?
Not too many people know that anaerobic digestion is a carbon-neutral technology that produces biogas that can be used for heating, generating electricity, mechanical energy, or for supplementing the natural gas supply. In Europe, anaerobic digesters are used to convert agricultural, industrial, and municipal wastes into biogases that can be upgraded to 97 percent pure methane as a natural gas substitute or to generate electricity. There are 8960 anaerobic digesters in Europe. Keep in mind that Germany leads the European nations with 6,800 large-scale anaerobic digesters, followed by Austria with 551.
