Romania is one of six target countries in the BiG>East project. The objective is to promote biogas as renewable energy source and as waste treatment technology. This is achieved by the implementation of training courses for farmers and mobilisation campaigns for decision makers. Dedicated studies on biogas opportunities, policies and barriers in Romania support this initiative.

Biogas Opportunities in Romania


The BiG>East Consortium is investigating the opportunities for biogas implementation in Romania. This includes an assessment of the biogas potential in Romania. The following studies were elaborated in the framework of the BiG>East project:


- Assessment of existing biogas installations in Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Latvia, Romania, and Romania


- Technical review of the utilisation of waste material for biogas production in Eastern Europe and Romania


- Technical Review of the Utilisation of Waste Material for Biogas Production in Romania


- Estimation of the potential feedstock availability for biogas production in Eastern Europe and Romania


- Assessment of the agricultural structure for biogas production in Eastern Europe and Romania


- Biogas purification and feed-in opportunities in Europe and Romania


- Technical opportunities for the utilisation of biogas in Eastern Europe and Romania


- Impact of biogas production in Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Latvia, Romania and Slovenia


- Biogas Potential in Romania: Summary Report


- Biogas Site Selection Guideline


- Assessment Studies for Specific Biogas Sites in the target region of Romania


- Biogas Show Case in the target Region of Romania


- Local Implementation Strategy for Biogas Projects in Romania



Policies and Barriers for Biogas in Romania


Policies are important in order to create a favourable framework for biogas production and use in Romania. On the other side, there are Barriers which hinder the application of biogas technologies. BiG>East investigated policies and barriers in Romania:


- Biogas Policies in Romania


- Biogas Barriers in Romania


- Biogas Roadmap for Romania




Biogas Training in Romania


In the framework of the BiG>East project three training courses for farmers are implemented in Romania. The training courses are currently under preparation and more information will be available soon.


Training material as well as a biogas handbook including an economic calculation tool was elaborated and can be downloaded here:


- Biogas Training Handbook


- Excel Calculation Tool for Economic Analysis of Biogas Plants


- Questionnaire for the Evaluation of Biogas Training


- Report of the first training course


- Summary of the Biogas Training Courses in Romania



Mobilisation Campaigns for Decision Makers


In the framework of the BiG>East project two mobilisation campaigns for decision makers were implemented in Romania.
