Abstract

The case studies the use of anaerobic digestion process to generate biogas, an emerging energy sustainable source, in the Pacific Northwest, and what barriers are preventing its implementation in that region. In order to do that, a literature review was conducted and a visit to a local generation facility, where it is being used, was done. Based on that, a list of barriers preventing biogas adaptation in the Pacific Northwest was generated. Then a perspective analysis was conducted to come up with recommendation about how those barriers can be overcome.
