Projects & Practice
A dairy family farm in Sweden invested in a biogas powered generator and a storage facility for substrates in order to become self-sufficient through the use of green energy.
Support from the rural development programme was used to buy new machinery and expand the production capacity of a biogas plant.
In an area where cattle breeding is predominent, LEADER funding helped explore the potentials of producing biogas from manure produced in the farms.
