This Microferm green gas installation at a dairy farmer in Deurningen in the Netherlands produces 40 Nm3 green gas per hour, sufficient for keeping warm around 400 Dutch families.

The produced biogas from the cow manure is being upgraded to green gas with natural gas quality, also known as biomethane. The high-quality green gas is directly injected into the national low pressure network (LD-net). In addition to this sustainable way of producing energy, the methane emission – a strong geenhouse gas – is considerably reduced. HoSt ensures the daily functioning of the installation with an all-in-maintenance contract of twelve years.
