MICROFERM MONO MANURE BIOGAS-TO-BIOMETHANE PLANT

This Microferm plant in Merselo, in the southern province Limburg of the Netherlands, anaerobic digests 100 percent manure and the biogas upgrading system has a capacity of 40 Nm3 per hour biomethane. This project is the first ‘cooperative Jumpstart’ project of HoSt. Jumpstart, an initiative of dairy cooperative FrieslandCampina, facilitates dairy farmers who want to realize mono-manure digesters plants on their own farm.
