.Local energy ressources - Waste recovery / biogas
In the last years, the company Getliņi EKO jointly established by the Riga and Stopiņi Municipalities, received around 300.000 tonnes of waste per year and produced around 15.000 million m3 of biogas per year, allowing further production of 34 GWh of electricity. Taking into account that natural gas is used for electricity production in large combined heat-power plants, biogas use then provides approximately 16 thousand tonnes of CO2emissions savings per year.  Additionally, thanks to the heat generated, the greenhouse can produce around 50 kg/m3of tomatoes.
