Description/Abstract

In order to determine the effects of the introduction of AD within a farming environment it is necessary to take into account all of the potential factors affecting on-farm biogas production
in an integrated way. One of the problems faced by those trying to build integrated models is that the drivers for environmental, economic and energy production often conflict with one
another and may be incompatible. This paper considers some of these drivers and how the three approaches, for economic, environmental and energy assessment may be integrated in
order to address conflicts between them.
