The choice of the best available techniques for the production of bioenergy on the basis of ecological and economic criteria

Sergienko O.I., Kashchenko Y.S., Elistratova A.P.

Today, technologies of the biological raw materials processing are widely used for the purpose of problem solving of the environmentally safe disposal of organic wastes, reducing environmental pollution as well as obtaining an alternative energy. One of the main trends in the development of agro-industrial regions is to search for the best available techniques (BAT) of organic waste processing using integrated technologies for the utilization of biomass due to methane fermentation to obtain biogas. Criteria for the selection of BAT in a particular industry are determined by its specificity and scale of environmental impacts, and to date are undefined. The article is concentrated on the use of ecological and economic criteria in the life cycle of a biogas plant: life cycle costs and carbon footprint. The applicability of these criteria to identify and select the best available techniques for organic waste processing to produce biogas are analyzed in the article.
