1 Biogas production from sugar beet silage Jin Mi Triolo University of Southern Denmark

2 Why sugar beet silage? Dedicate energy crop for biogas production: prohibited until 2011 New regulation since 2012: up to 25% of dedicate energy crop allowed as co- feedstock (at least 75% must be animal manure) Sugar beet : Highest dry matter yield per. ha : Easily degradable, high methane potential : Ensilaging produce alcohols and organic acids (quick biogas production)
