Abstract written for an poster presentation at the EBA conference in Alkmaar. The flexibility of biogas makes it a very capable load balancer within decentralized smart energy systems. However, within this context the sustainability of biogas production is not fully understood. What is needed is a tool for analyzing the ustainability of biogas production pathways. The main goal, of this research is to design a transparent flexible planning tool capable determining the sustainability of decentralized biogas production chains. This insight will help in designing a tailor-made biogas production chain for a specific geographic location, increasing the effectiveness and sustainability of biogas as a renewable resource.
