In some European countries, locally generated biogas can contribute significantly to reach  renewable energy targets. Biogas is a type of biofuel naturally produced from the decomposition of organic matter, such as livestock manure, waste from agricultural production and food waste collected from households and businesses. In Denmark, biogas already makes up about 20% of the natural gas that goes into the grid, and other countries are also investing in green gas production.

PVC pipes are widely used for manure transfer and in biogas production facilities, for instance the world’s biggest plant in Switzerland.
