    pan SRUC seminar by Melf Ehlers, James Hutton Institute on 5th of June 2014. Germany is currently the country with the highest installed electrical capacity of on-farm anaerobic digestion plants. The growth of Germany’s on-farm anaerobic digestion sector is often attributed to favourable electricity feed-in tariffs. This is an insufficient explanation, among others because farmers invested in anaerobic digestion already before the introduction of such tariffs. The presentation examines the initiation and accomplishment of investments in anaerobic digestion from 1980 to 2008 in Germany, drawing on time series and case study research. For the accomplishment of investments institutionalisation of advice, engineering standards, finance, feedstock supply and planning regulation became increasingly important. In the early years, initiation depended on entrepreneurial aspirations to implement something novel in uncertain environments, whereas in later years largely institutionalised economic expectations relative to farm characteristics became more decisive

      The northern Great Plains holds some of the greatest potential for the production of cellulosic biomass, but the region is also critical for wildlife producing 50-80% of waterfowl populations and providing breeding habitat for more than half of the bird species that breed in North America. This webinar will focus on development of “Best Management Guidelines (BMGs) to Achieve Sustainability of Wildlife Resources” during perennial herbaceous biomass production and harvest by producers and industry in the Prairie Pothole Region of the Northern Great Plains. Sponsored by CenUSA, SunGrant, and National Wildlife Federation.

        This film explain the biogas technique. You will be shown the process of a biogas plant from the delivery of feedstock to the output of the digestate. This biogas film is useful for everyone, who would like to plan or operate a biogas plant, no matter if you are farmer, energy provider or disposer. Furthermore, the biogas film is excellent for operator training, for school lessons and university purposes.
