Abstract: Bio­gas is con­sid­ered to be an impor­tant source of renew­able ener­gy, the pro­duc­tion of which is on a con­tin­u­ous rise and which can be deci­sive for the elim­i­na­tion of fos­sil fuels by 2050. To reduce the neg­a­tive impact of human actions on the envi­ron­ment, we must take mea­sures urgent for stim­u­lat­ing the use of renew­able ener­gy but also for increas­ing aware­ness of the envi­ron­men­tal cri­sis. The major cause of green­house emis­sions, but also of cli­mate change, is also attrib­uted to throw­ing food waste into land­fills. This food waste, in addi­tion to oth­er plant and ani­mal mat­ter, con­sti­tutes an impor­tant raw mate­r­i­al for obtain­ing bio­gas. The bioen­er­gy thus obtained can con­sid­er­ably reduce green­house gas emis­sions. The pro­duc­tion of bio­gas offers a mul­ti­tude of advan­tages for the pop­u­la­tion of the whole world, for the envi­ron­ment and last but not least for the busi­ness envi­ron­ment.
Key­words: bio­gas, renew­able ener­gy sources, bio­fu­els, ener­gy pol­i­cy.
