Tynaarlo, Netherlands

HoSt built a biogas plant on the dairy farm Cremershoeve.

Cattle manure and other co-materials are digested in this plant. Unique about this system is the focus on low cost co-materials. For example, the company uses natural grass from nature nearby as input material. The solid fraction that is generated by the digesting process is recirculated to achieve a higher yield.

In total, the system generates 1 MW of electricity and heat.
