Ongoing projectsDigital Global Biogas Cooperation, DiBiCoo
Period: October 2019 - June 2022
DiBiCoo is a EU Horizon 2020 funded cooperation project between biogas technology exporting and importing countries, with the overall objective to support the European biogas/biomethane industry by preparing markets for the import of sustainable biogas/biomethane technologies from Europe to developing and emerging countries. This will be achieved by the development and application of innovative digital and non-digital support tools and actions, by knowledge transfer and capacity building as well as by the preparation of demo cases up to the investment stage. The project aims to increase the share of renewable energies, both in Europe and in importing countries. For further information we invite you to have a look at the project website: http://dibicoo.org
The German Biogas Association (GBA) and twelve other partners from nine countries are joining forces to implement the project. GBA supports DiBiCoo particularly in the capacity building activities like webinars and study tours. The DiBiCoo Web Seminar Series just kicked-off in June 2020.

Development of draft code of practice (standards) and training materials on biogas plants in Kenya
Period: May 2020 to March 2021
UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization) commissioned GBA and its project partner AKUT Umweltschutz to work out a draft “Code of Practice” which will be transferred into a biogas standard for Kenya. This new project started as a follow up in May 2020 and is set to March 2021.
Additionally, GBA and the project team supports the capacity building activities of Kenya’s Information and Best Practice Platform (IBPP) by providing training materials. The IBPP is based at KIRDI (Kenya Industrial Research and Development Institute). The training material covers the whole spectrum of biogas in about 10 presentations. It ranges from the basics of anaerobic digestion (AD), digester biology and technology, optimization of gas production, feedstock, planning, construction, operation and maintenance of biogas plants, the use of biogas, biogas safety, biogas digestate, biogas regulations up to financial aspects of biogas projects. This material will be complemented by a biogas guidebook which also comprises the important issue of sustainability of biogas.
