Utilization of bio gas - an environmental issue

Why is it important to the environment?

Environmental impact more important than obligations

​More important than obligations is the recognition that our living and activity gives an environmental footprint. We must keep this footprint as low as possible in all areas. We can achive this by ensuring the best possible utilization of our resources and cooperation across scetors for the benefit of society. 

The Paris Agreement

Through the Paris agreement, 193 parties has committed to make significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
 
The Agreement aims to respond to the global climate change threat by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius. This is based upon pre industrial levels. The ambition is to further pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Due to these obligations, there are a lot of discussion around "the green change" that is needed to reduce CO2, methane and NOx emissions, as well as exploit natural resources in the most environmentally friendly manner, creating a circular economy in which resources are used and reused with the least possible environmental impact​.
 
For this to become a reality, action is needed in the "green shift". We, Agri-e, take this seriously and work hard each day year around for this to become a reality.
 
Through our products, Agri-e will be a strong contributor to meet our goals in the Paris agreement and UN's Sustainable Develompnet Goals.

How big should your environmental impact be?

Known Resources - Great Opportunities

By good and efficient utilization of biogas we increase energy efficiency and the value of the products will benefit us all.

​This will result in:
  • Better utilization of resources in agriculture - circular economy
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
    • CO2 and methane from agriculture
    • CO2, NOX and particles/soot from the transport sector
  • Increased food production
    • A more environmentally friendly farming
    • Organic agricultural benefits and industrial agricultural crops
  • Production of environmentally friendly fuel
    • Hydrogen

We uses 1.5 times the earth's resource base a year. This need to change.

The example below illustrates how Agri-e will contribute through the utilization of resources that are currently considered a problem.

A greenhouse of approx. 3 acers with tomato plants in Norway will have a power requirement of approx. 600 kW electric power. By using bio gas through a system from Agri-e it will provide the following:
  • Annual CO2 capture of approx. 380 tons thats supplied to the greenhouse as nutrition to optimize plant growth/food production.
  • The system will consume 600 tons of methane (bio gas) annually, equivalent to a discharge of approx. 15,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalents.
  • The system will produce approximately 260 tons of hydrogen that will cover the need for approx. 1 300 private cars with an annual mileage of 20 000 km.
    • This will give a reduction of 3 380 tonnes of CO2.
    • In addition, reduction of NOX and particles/soot emission.
    • Green Hydrogen equals ZERO emission​​!!!

Converted to CO2 emissions, this system will reduce emmission by 19,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalents annually.

We in Agri-e means:
  • «Reduced greenhouse gas emissions must come as a result of better utilization of our resources and correct choice of energy source.»

Possibilities:
  • Achieve major reductions of greenhouse gas emissions
  • ​Optimize the use of bio- and natural gas
  • Increase food production
  • Clean, affordable, reliable and sustainable energy
  • Zero emission in transportation
  • Exploit the potential of livestock manure and other biomass


In a world that uses 1.5 times the world's resource base a year, will we continue to let this go to play?
​We need to pay more intention to UN's Sustainable Development Goals
