EU countries seek gas suppliers to replace Russia
in the future aljazeera
I should like to remind that European straw can produce biomethane
, able to replace around 1/6th
of the natural gas we used to buy from Russia chemicalforums
and following oops
Worth 30G€/year, and the fermentation leftovers are still good fertilizer. This biomethane emits no net CO2
and might even avoid emitting CH4
when unprocessed straw ferments in the soil as a fertilizer. The idea is already known, ask the researchers.
The leftovers of palm oil production
in Asia exceed the straw amount in the EU. I suppose they could feed the same methanisers
and increase also their output of fertilizer chemicalforums
Worth transporting from the antipodes? They can be chopped before.
The EU has more time than last year to build methanisers. Institutional action can save time. Like: select the best design, buy its intellectual property, make it freely available to many manufacturers, let know the process, provide optionally guarantees to the farmers.
