HoSt built a co-digestion installation for the digestion of manure with low-grade residues, including residues from the sugar beet industry. Unique about installation is that the heat that is generated is used for drying the solid fraction of the digestate.

The electricity genereated by the co-digestion process is returned to the grid. The electricity production is 8 million kWh per year, which corresponds to a consumption of 2,600 households.
