Thanks to the presence of both technologies, the different incoming biomass is directed to the most suitable anaerobic digestion system. Good-quality wet waste, organic waste rich in impurities and dedicated crops feed the two different sections in the most efficient manner possible. The two biogas production lines remain separate, while the gas purification plant and the fermenter heating plant are common.
The plant produces approx. 3 million Nm³ of methane per year, which are then injected in the mains owned by E.ON Mitte. This quantity corresponds to approx. 30 million kWh, which can cover the electricity requirements of 8,500 families.
