Azerbaijan’s Biogas Potential

The use of methane, which is harnessed from biomass processing plants in landfills can partially meet the demand for electricity in Azerbaijan.

The source of biomass-based fuels is industry, agriculture, as well as household and other wastes. The country has a great biogas potential because of the large amount of urban waste.

There are over 200 waste utilization polygons, which cover an area of 900 hectares. Around 6-6.5 million cubic meters of solid household waste per year is produced in the country. This creates great opportunities for the use of methane, which is formed during waste processing.

It is possible to meet the electricity demand by constructing small Thermal Power Stations by using methane, collected in these polygons.
