AGRICULTURAL ON-FARM ANAEROBIC DIGESTION SOLUTION: MICROFERM+
HoSt designed the MICROFERM+ agricultural biogas plant in addition to its product line of biogas plants. Investing in this installation gives farmers the ultimate possibility to use their available manure and agricultural ‘waste’ as valuable feedstock to produce biomethane and to reduce their carbon foot print. It is the turnkey solution for an agricultural biogas plant combined with a biogas upgrading system, using membrane separation technology, and plant control system in a single compact and modular housing.
MICROFERM+ biogas installations are suitable for both liquid waste streams as solid waste streams, which are fed separately into the digester. Depending on the company size and the availability of feedstock, the MICROFERM+ plant is designed to annually anaerobic digest about 5,000 to 10,000 tonnes of agricultural feedstock, such as (cattle) manure, maize silage, grass cuttings and organic waste.
Producing annually a maximum of 550,000 Nm3 biomethane, it can be used by approximately 360 households for cooking and heating for a full year. Left over digestate, the remaining material after the anaerobic digestion process, can be separated or directly stored in an after-storage, to be used as organic fertilizer for crops.
