A business case for the installation of a biogas unit at the island of Poros
The project is a business plan about the installation of a biogas unit at the island of Poros in northeastern Peloponnisos, at Greece. The aim is the collection and the elaboration of the organic municipality solid wastes of the island of Poros and the town of Galatas, which is located across the island of Poros in a distance of 400 m. From the elaboration of the wastes, the aim is the production of biogas and the production of electricity for the local community. Moreover, the unit is able to produce Compost, a fertilizer with the aim to be sold in the local farms at the county of Argolida. A research was developed for estimating all the costs, all the demanded permits, the possible ways of financing the project and the probable income. In addition, it was developed an analysis of the data and the calculation of the net present value. At last we developed a risk assessment for all the possible hazards, which consume an investment like this.
