ABSTRACT:
Agricultural biogas plants are an important source of energy, where the substrates from agricultural crops can be used. However, these plants need a daily input of biomass in the quantities up to several dozen tons. A few years ago, the most important substrate used for biogas production was maize silage. However, currently, there is a trend to limit the use of the afore-mentioned substrate. This is mainly due to the high cost of the substrate and the conflict over the rational use of valuable soils for biomass production for energy purposes. In the paper, the author undertook the attempts to discuss the possibility of limiting the use of raw vegetable materials for energy production, replacing them with agri-food production waste.
