II. Goal of the Study and Conferences

The study provides a foundation to gain information about trends, opportunities and risks and to evaluate initial situation and further development as well as to identify and evaluate the growth and profit opportunities within the segments of technologies/markets, the industries and value chain. It will deal with the current state of biogas plant market and future developments .It is the new study in 2017 from Helmut Kaiser Consultancy since 1991 in the biogas business. There are also workshops and business conferences in New York, Hong Kong, Beijing and Singapore. “How to participate in the booming biogas markets worldwide” is the title of the biogas market book 2017 and basis of the conferences.

I. Initial Position

The world markets for biogas is booming, gets more professional,Trends in 2017: France and USA now booming,,Optimization,Uppgrating,Energy storage and small systems. 80 percent plant efficiency. today most plants are under 38 percent. “Smart biogas plants” will be  “best practice” soon. For this the process control, sensing, instrumentation and automation is a importend part with high growth and innovations.
A smart biogas plant today is a plant without CO2
emissions, with solar power, wind power, with various input materials, separat CO2 and methane,
get two gases in high purity and a energy storage at the plant. The cost's by sizes in the study also the explanation of the technology and processes, the very few companies who can do that worldwide.

From several companies in 1991 there are now over 6000 companies, plant builders and operators worldwide and still growing. But only some companies hold the knowledge for “smart biogas plants” today. The leading countries in Europe are loosing their position in this fast growing market to Asian soon. Other regions develop slow compared to China for example, where the market increases with over 12 percent per year. Also Germany slows down in there development. Some plant builder is on the way to be a world player, new operators enter the markets and the optimization of today’s and older plants is a fast growing business too.
Energy Battery Storage for Biogas Plants is on the way to boom in several countries. For this we have a extra study.. 100 of the best biogas plants worldwide is a study you can get separat too.
20 years is a short time in this business so one should plan and have a strategy to 2030.
This study provides data by year and technology developments to 2030 worldwide. Energy production from biogas worldwide increased last years and will grow faster the next years in Asian, USA and Brazil to name some. Especially plants for the fermentation of household waste, agricultural, industrial and waste water/sludge will demand more plants.

Most countries have or develop regulatory framework for biogas. The market worldwide will reach over 50 billion US $ by 2030 for plant builder, operator and supplier. Further more there is development for the cities and rural areas to have a new source of income, new jobs, new industries and profit. In the future local energy distribution concepts, for electricity, heat, cooling; and fuel biogas will play an important and efficient role.

Biogas can be produced from a wide variety of available organic materials and wastes, including sewage sludge, animal manure, municipal/industrial organic waste, parts from ethanol production, crop residues, and specially grown energy crops and more.
This study is the only research worldwide for biogas plants in 50 countries with the potentials and developments to 2030, with the markets, technologies and competition worldwide. (Second Edition)

There are business conferences and presentations about this study in New York, London, Hong Kong, Beijing, Singapore and Tokyo.
