Main emphasis is on process and technology, supplemented with systems research and social science for analysing resource efficiency and social and business conditions as this knowledge is central for resource-efficient biogas solutions to be implemented.
BRC is planned as a ten-year initiative in three phases. After each phase the initiative is evaluated and decision is taken on continuation in a next phase. Phase 1 started in 2012 and ended in 2014. Phase 2 started in December 2014 and lasts until 2018.
