Assessment of Biogas Supply Chains from a Social Acceptance Point of View

Schumacher, Kira; Panitz, Fabiola; Breun, Patrick; Schultmann, Frank



Abstract (englisch): Drawing from a variety of literature sources, the present paper explores the conditions for social acceptance of biogas supply chains from an interdisciplinary perspective by integrating technical and societal aspects. It aims at identifying acceptance relevant parameters of biogas plants which exert an impact on local communities and residents living in the immediate vicinity of biogas plants. Relevant parameters include substrate type, transport and logistics, storage of feedstocks, plant size and location, odor and noise emissions, and commercialization of end products. In conclusion, recommendations for project owners to promote social acceptance of biogas supply chains are developed.
