Project Leader: Professor Adisa Azapagic
Project Duration: November 2010 - October 2013.
This project looks into how biomass from rural areas, such as energy crops and agricultural waste, could provide sustainable energy to cities. Focusing on the UK, the aim is to identify most sustainable options for providing heat and electricity in urban homes. The technological options considered include biomass boilers, gasification of waste, anaerobic digestion and recovery of bio-gas from landfills. The results of this work will be useful for different stakeholders, including farmers, energy companies, city councils, waste contractors, policy makers as well as consumers.
