This farm, owned by Kleizen, has 400 pink veal calfs, held for meat production. In 2010, this first Microferm was commissioned after a construction time of approximately 4 weeks.
In this Microferm, daily fresh manure is converted into biogas. In this process, 100% manure is used, without any co-products. Unique about this installation is the fact that the retention time in the Microferm is very short. Therefore, the required volume, and hence the own energy consumption, is very low.
The biogas is converted into sustainable electricity and heat in a CHP. The available heat is used for private houses and the calf stable. The digestate is stored in a gas-tight end-storage, which is also used as a gas buffer.
