"An important initiative that can have great impact through the power of being a good example"
UN´s vice secretary general Jan Eliasson on Dr Jan Rapp´s work promoting biogas 

                                          our story

When dr Jan Rapp, senior medical advisor at a Stockholm hospital, first heard of biogas two things struck him:

  1. the technique enables every city in the world to produce carbon neutral, smart energy from waste. The process also purifies water and contributes to stable supply of domestic fertiliser.
  2. it was the first time he heard of it.
If the best ways to reduce emissions of fossil carbon dioxide are to become world wide practice, knowledge of how you construct such systems need to increase. This means Sweden needs to improve the way we communicate how a smart city turns waste to energy. How to sort waste, what cars to drive, etc.  


With this in mind, Jan founded Biogasakademin, a non-profit network of proffessionals wanting to help out as best we can in preventing climate change. 
By telling all swedes about how smart it is to connect to the biogas grid we create two this::

 

  1. A more intelligently designed country with less waste, better city air, more green energy, better food, more secure energy supply, more jobs and better economic conditions for farmers and strengthened economy in rural regions.
  2. A country with ten millon biogas ambassadors being able to tell tourists and Nobel Prize winners about how litle effort it takes to live a little smarter. A conutry where landing at an airport, eating at a restaurant, having coffe in a café, taking a taxi or staying at a hotel means being reminded of the facts that in this country we do things a little...... smarter.
All this in order to speed up the spreading of biogas technology world wide, something we see starting in California but also in Finland, England, Holland and France.

our idea

Even big challenges can have simple solutions. Knowing you are making a difference makes people do amazing things.

our Vision

Sweden - a country of ten million biogas ambassadors. For a fast shift to more intelligent ways to produce energy and food, a decreased need for transportation of liquid fuels and less political tension in the world, decisionmakers need to see large scale, operational technical solutions. Sweden is the perfect place to learn about one such system: biogas.
We need to get better at telling how far we´ve come in biogas development!

Pressmaterial & rewards
