Biogas - Important Resource for Renewable Energy Development in Romania

Share this Post:
In Romania the biogas sector is in an early stage of development. With the development of biogas it is also necessary to change of legislation, the development of agriculture and the increase of general knowledge level, regarding the benefits of biogas, for this potential to be exploited. REECO international trade fair and conference organiser on renewable energy, brings together experts and key persons from biogas area in Romania and not only, to an international event: ENREG ENERGIA REGENERABILA, between 25-27th of April 2012.

Biogas is a mixture of gases produced from organic matter of different origins containing methane and carbon dioxide. This is the result of anaerobic fermentation (without air), and for his production can be used both vegetable row materials, animal waste and residues from food industry. Biogas process involves removing waste, a 100% ecologic process. Biogas can be converted into energy through a process much cleaner than burning fossil fuels.  


Romania is a country with many areas appropriate for biogas production. Bihor county is just an example, with 12 areas where people can get rid of harmful waste, and receive instead heat, electricity, bio fertilizer and a clean environment. The first bioethanol and biogas plant in Romania will be built and completed until 2013, in Remetea, Harghita. The plant will produce ethanol using agricultural products in the area, and the resulting pulp will produce biogas.


To contribute to the increase in this area, both in terms of quality of submitted information and the technique itself, REECO - international trade fair and conference organizer, comes back with the 4th edition of the conference Biogas. Production Technologies and their Importance for Sustainable Development, on  25th of April 2012.


The conference will debate topics such as: Potential Advantages of Biomethane Production in the Region of South-East Europe; Turning Food Waste Into Biogas Production; Biogas - Important renewable energy source; Sustainable Technology, Complex and Versatile: Food, Energy and Farm Fertilizer and others.


Among those who will speak at the conference are: Elena H. ANGELOVA - Deutsches BiomasseForschungsZentrum gemeinnützige GmbH, Germany; Prof. Ştefana JURCOANE, USAMV  Bucharest; Dr. Eng. Benone VELCESCU, Adviser at The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Prof. Kornel KOVACS, Hungarian Association of Biogas, Prof. Dr. Eng. Ioana IONEL, POLYTECHNIC University of Timisoara, Dr. Eng. Teodor VINTILA, University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Banat Timisoara and others.


The conference will take place in parallel with the fair ENREG ENERGIA REGENERABILA®, that will be organized between 25-27th of April 2012, at Expo Arad International. The trade fair and conference will bring together experts and key persons in this area, where they will present new projects, they will share experiences and exchange opinions.


The event is supported by the Ministry of Environment and Forests and Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development:


"It should be shown that the biomass energy potential of Romania (agricultural waste, forestry residues, food industry by-products etc.), are completed lately, by non-agricultural energy crop cultivation (energy willow, miscanthus, cynara, poplar energy etc.). All this biomass potential will be an important source for biofuels from the 2nd generation and other energies, obviously by observing the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions", said Stelian FUIA, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development.
