The household waste must be sorted before it is suitable for biogas production. The residual product in the form of packaging is disposed of in the incineration plant, while the organic material is sent to the biogas plant.
Organic waste from food production is supplied to the biogas plant. Industrial waste may also include residual material from sewage treatment plants.
Organic waste from agriculture, such as manure and residues from agricultural production are supplied to the biogas plant.
The Biogas Plant
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.
