Role In The Project

): IUNG-PIB is involved in several work packages of the project. We will be conducting work in a number of directions. In this project we will be mainly responsible for replication in the implementation of the developed innovations among willing farmers. In cooperation with farmers and stakeholders, we will organise trainings to increase efficient biogas production in Poland and the EU (T5.2). Secondly, we will monitor the impact of agricultural systems related to biogas production and the obtained fertilisers on the environment, biodiversity and soil quality (T4.1.2). We will help to collect data on and the needs of farmers. We will participate in the identification of barriers as well as opportunities for the development of biogas plants in our country and gather a group of farmers interested in biogas and renewable energy production (T1.1). We will also actively disseminate the project results to a general audience (WP6).
