Biogas for heating is sustainable (Germany)


Using biogas for heating helps reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, argues the German Energy Agency (Deutsche Energie-Agentur - dena) in response to media reports suggesting otherwise. According to the agency, it is true that the use of combined heat and power systems (CHP) is most efficient as they generate both heat and electricity. But even when bio-methane is only used for heating, it still offers advantages compared with fossil fuels, in particular when the biogas used is obtained from residual and waste materials.
