Abstract

The population demand for energy is increasing day by day; fossil fuel supply, on the other hand, is on the verge of running out. Consequently, we could be facing a lack of energy. Partial solution to the problem is the exploitation of renewable energy sources (RES), including acquiring biogas from biomass. In Europe, we are confronted by food excess and abandonment of some cultivated land. In our research, we have analysed plants Sudan grass, Phacelia and Japanese knotweed as energy sources. On the basis of chemical analysis we have calculated teoretical production of biogas.
