In current thesis, I discussed the eligibility of building a biogas plant on the farm. Findings
presented here are result of my own experience in the farm, literature review and broad
experience of providers of biogas plants in Slovenia.
Firstly, in the theoretical part of my thesis, I introduced biogas and its composition.
Additionally, the history of biogas and its current situation in Europe and the world was
briefly presented. I focused on the development and construction of biogas plants in Slovenia.
Advantages and disadvantages of biogas, which affect the nature and people, were presented.
Biogas is produced from a broad range of substrates. I presented the possible substrates and
their yields in biogas. Moreover, I presented components of the biogas plant. Certain permits
and consents essential for construction of a biogas plant were also presented.
At the end of the theoretical part, I was interested in financial support for biogas plants, or for
electricity generated from them. Various options of financial support of the electricity
produced were presented in the current thesis.
In the practical part of the thesis, I firstly introduced the family farm. On the basis of the
quantity of substrate produced on the farm I calculated the eligibility of installing biogas plant
on the farm.
I collected various offers for biogas plants on the market and finally I selected the one, for
which the highest quantity of information for construction and the data for the calculations
were provided. The problem with our farm is that production of substrate is not sufficient,
since the biogas plants are designed for higher amounts of substrate.
In conclusion part I presented findings based on the collected offers and also expressed my
