Biogas plant

A biogas plant generates biogas from biomass (e. g. semi-liquid manure, plant silage). Organic matter is fermented at a constant temperature in the absence of oxygen. The resulting biogas can be used as engine fuel and the fermentation residue as fertiliser.

In many cases the biogas produced is used on site in a cogeneration unit for the generation of power and heat.
