Consisting of more than 1500 affiliated researchers, the Utrecht Sustainability Institute (USI) is a leading network organization in the field of sustainability. Bringing private sector, research organisations and government bodies together to create sustainable changes is its core activity. USI avails of substantial in-house expertise in the fields of renewable energy, biobased production and sustainability. USI projects that are relevant to BiogasETC include ‘Green Gold Label’ on certification of sustainable biomass; ‘CATO2’ on Carbon Capture and Storage; USI participates in the EIT-financed project ‘Biogas2Market’, which aims to improve sustainability and economics of anaerobic digesters.
Within the BiogasETC project, USI is project lead and as such takes care of the project management; this will comprise warranting project coherence; taking care of internal and external communication where necessary; accelerating knowledge sharing through organising project workshops and meetings and monitoring project progress.
