scope of valorgas project
Scope of Valorgas project
  • Food waste accounts for 20% of the domestic waste stream in the EU
  • Total food waste available in EU : 200 million t/yr, If food wastes from agro- and food industries are included

To explore the energy potential in foodwaste through effective collection, pre-processing and optimisation of the fuel conversion technology

  • How integration of these aspects with improvements to conversion efficiencies can maximise the net energy gains.
objectives of valorgas project
Objectives of Valorgas project
  • To evaluate the efficiency and yield of source segregated food waste collection schemes from domestic properties, restaurant and catering facilities, food markets and food manufacture.
  • To determine the energy and carbon footprint of the biowaste-to-energy process including collection, transport, treatment and final product use.
  • To optimisepre-treatment of the source segregated waste stream for biogas production and biosecurity of the residual product
  • To develop low-cost small-scale biogas upgrading technologies and storage systems for application in transportation and local low-pressure distribution systems.
  • To estimate the potential for small-scale biogas upgrading in local transportation in the EU and in India.
  • To evaluate the potential for food waste digestion as a second generation biofuel source across the EU in terms of energy yield, environmental benefit and end user requirements
