Status quo biogas plants and biomethane plants

The biogas market in Croatia is in its beginning stages.  Investors are mainly in feasibility and pre-feseability stages of a project development for the biogas. There is no biogas upgrading plants for biomethane production.

Existing biogas plants
At the moment (March 2013) there are 12 operating biogas plants i.e  1 landfill gas plant of 2 MWel, 2 waste water treatment plant (3 MWel) and 9 agricultural biogas plants of about 1 MWel each (8.1 MWel together). In addition to the listed plants, there are about 60 biogas plants pending for a permit for gaining the status of privileged producer. All these biogas projects primarily focus on electricity generation.

Existing biomethane plants
Currently in Croatia are not existing nor foreseen biogas upgrading plants for biomethane production.
