At Terra Agrar AG, we want to play our part in the the energy transition and contribute to the energy mix.
As fossil fuel reserves dwindle, extracting them is becoming ever more expensive and harmful to the environment. For example, natural gas, oil and coal are extracted from underground reservoirs which are increasingly difficult to reach. The main problem, however, is that the use of fossil fuels leads to a very negative CO2 balance.
Production of electricity in cogeneration plants also releases CO2. The plants used for biogas need CO2 to grow, which means that CO2 from the atmosphere is naturally bound in them. In contrast to fossil fuels, there is no other waste that needs to be disposed of or pollutes the environment. Biogas is much better in terms of the environmental life cycle assessment, because the resulting CO2 is recycled.
