Location of Biogas Production - Slurry as a Retail Commodity

M. Bojesen, M. Birkin & G.C. Clarke
In this paper, the current and planned network of biogas production will be considered. It will be demonstrated that additional capacity will be required to achieve politically agreed targets for biogas. Through a two­step approach, combining a location­allocation model with a production constrained spatial interaction model, this paper will provide a solution to the dual problem of determining both the optimal location and production capacity of new plants. Biogas production has important similarities with other...
