Contenido principal del artículo

Jesus Alberto Mizger Ortega


Este trabajo describe la contribución de investigadores de todo el mundo en el campo de la producción de biogás en el periodo 2000-2021. Se aplicó un enfoque bibliométrico para analizar las publicaciones científicas en el área utilizando la base de datos Scopus de Elsevier. Se analizaron 1198 artículos desarrollados por 4212 autores de 2789 instituciones de investigación distribuidos en 96 países. Los artículos científicos provienen principalmente de China, Italia y Estados Unidos. La revista, el autor, la institución y el país más productivo son Bioresource Technology, Irini Angelidaki, Danmarks Tekniske Universitet y China, respectivamente. Toda esta investigación es de suma importancia para el desarrollo de esta línea de investigación en la Universidad del Atlántico donde en la actualidad se están desarrollando proyectos de investigación que contribuirán al fortalecimiento de la comunidad científica tanto nacional como internacional.
