In the biogas plant, the waste products, also known as biomasses, are pumped into the oxygen-free reactors where they are heated. In the reactor a biological process takes place in which the bacteria produce biogas.
Biogas can be used to power a gas engine which powers an electric generator.
Biogas can be used to power a gas engine in a CHP plant, which transforms the biogas into energy in the form of heat.
The biogas is cleaned and can be distributed through the nationwide natural gas networks or used as fuel in the transport sector.
The degassed biomass is used as a fertilizer and soil improver in the fields. The degassed biomass contains all the original nutrients introduced alongside the organic waste.
