Renewable Gas will enable Industry in
Ireland to achieve our decarbonisation targets, without the need to re-invest
in alternative infrastructure.
Making renewable gas available to large
energy users will play a vital role in helping Ireland meet its renewable heat
(RES-H) targets of 12% by 2020.
Anaerobic Digestion (AD) on the Farm
AD of cattle manure avoids methane and
nitrous oxide emissions from manure storage ~12% of agricultural GHG emissions
Additional carbon credits come from
improved manure management resulting in GHG savings (Total GHG savings up to
239% c.f. natural gas)
Multiple options to achieve 100% GHG
savings by co-digestion with manure e.g.
100% GHG savings from an AD feedstock
mixture of 50% biowaste and 50% manure
