The Sustainable Biogas project partners organized a hybrid seminar on 27th September in connection with EUSBSR Annual Forum 2022 in Lappeenranta, Finland. The purpose of the event was to create discussion on improved nutrient management in biogas production and utilization of new biomass sources for sustainable bioenergy. The Sustainable Biogas team had invited Biomass4value, another EU funded project, and guest experts to present their perspectives on sustainable bioenergy.
The seminar started by the project presentations. First the findings from the Sustainable Biogas project was presented by Maija Salmiovirta from John Nurminen Foundation together with Pekka Paavilainen from the Centre for Economic Development, Transport and Environment. Then Virginija Kargyte from Bioeconomy Research Institute of Vytautas Magnus University (Lithuania) introduced the Biomass4value project. The objective of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region funded BalticBiomass4Value project was to enhance capacity of public and private actors within the BSR to produce bioenergy in more environmentally sustainable and economically viable way by utilizing new biomass sources (chiefly, biological waste) for energy production, as well as possibilities to use bioenergy side streams for higher value bio-products.
The seminar culminated to a panel discussion where the future and current situtation of biogas production as well as nutrient recycling were discussed by Veli-Pekka Reskola from the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Anna Virolainen-Hynnä from the Finnish Biocycle and Biogas Association and Rauni Karjala from Gasum Oy.
