Finding new locations for environmentally friendly infrastructural facilities (such as renewable energy sources or waste processing plants) is not an easy task. NIMBY (not in my backyard) effects usually accompany them: everybody wants to live in high quality place but nobody wants to bear costs. In this article trade-off proce-dures are described for the stipulation of protection zones around anaerobic digestion (biogas) plants. For facilities processing organic material odour nuisance has been identified as the biggest social acceptance prob-lem. Therefore, legally binding solutions in other countries are outlined to exemplify how to deal with NIMBYism. Both a simplified procedure and dispersion modelling have been applied for two case studies in Poland. The aim of this article is to outline guidelines for spatial planners, environmental experts in Poland and other actors of the investment process.
