The aim of the paper is to give an overview of financial efficiency of biogas plants in Poland. The research presents the analysis of selected biogas stations in Poland such as Biogazownia Drozdowo Sp. z o.o., Biogazownia Ostrzeszów Sp. z o.o., Biogazownia Prusinowice Sp. z o.o., Spółka Rolna Dretyń Biogazownia Sp. z o.o. The hypotheses of the research states that the biogas stations with higher profitability ratios are characterized by higher level of liquidity. In Poland the most popular is the usage of biomass among renewable energy sources. Biomass is used to produce biogas in large and small agricultural biogas stations. The production of biogas takes place under anaerobic conditions involving the usage of a number of microorganisms.
