Work Begins On 600,000 ton/year Biogas Facility

Wednesday 24 June 2015

Work has begun on a large-scale biogas facility in Southern Jutland Denmark, earlier this year.

The plant will supply the natural gas network with about 21 million cubic metres of biomethane a year when it begins operating in late 2016.

Utility company Eon is working with farm-owned co-operative Sønderjysk Biogas to develop the facility, which will be able to process up to 600,000 tonnes a year.

Around 450,000 tonnes of slurry will be the main feedstock with straw and other organic materials making up a further 150,000 tonnes annually.

The €33m (DKK250m) facility will be built on 160,000 square metre site, it will also create eight to ten direct jobs.

The project is Eon’s first major move into biogas production and is part of its long-term agreement with Sønderjysk Biogas, a co-operative of 86 mainly dairy and pig farmers.
