Small scale manure digestion
With the Microferm, HoSt focuses on small scale manure digestion. The efficiency of the small scale biogas plant for cattle farms is optimal for companies with a manure production between 400 m3 and 14,000 m3 annual (65-150 kWe). For amounts between 14.000 and 25.0000 m3 annual, HoSt provide the Macroferm (200-400 kWe). This type of plant is similar to the Microferm-concept, only four times larger.
It is possible to supply a tailor-made installation for larger quantities of manure, based on the same patented technology.
Highly efficient digester
With the unique and patented Microferm, it is possible to digest with both stability and high efficiency in case of short retention times (8-12 days). This makes it possible to use a compact and profitable digester, even for relatively large manure streams. The Microferm is combined with a gas tight after-storage, out of which gas can be extracted.
Combined heat and power connection / Biogas upgrading
The Microferm consist of a digester and a container in which the control is located, and a Combined Heat and Power connection (CHP) or a biogas upgrading system. The biogas upgrading or the gas engine supplies the heat for the digester.
HoSt has built several Microferm plants for different agricultural companies. Check out the reference page for more information.
