Grolsch | Biogas take-off to produce biomethane

Grolsch beer with its distinguished green colour became even ‘greener’ now Royal Grolsch – in addition to using sustainable heat from Twence – also chose the biogas contracting service model from HoSt. HoSt offtakes the biogas from the Grolsch wastewater treatment plant and upgrades this biogas to biomethane which is injected into the natural gas grid. HoSt will annually produce and inject over 1 million Nm3 of biomethane using biogas from Grolsch. A regional cooperation for a greener beer brewing process and a greener regional gas network, resulting in a more sustainable industry while at the same time enabling the production of biomethane which will replace 1 million cubic meters of natural gas annually. This sustainable alternative for fossil natural gas supplies renewable gas equivalent to the yearly consumption of approximately 700 households.

Andijk & Bemmel | Purchasing renewable heat

In Bemmel and Andijk in the Netherlands, greenhouse horticulture companies collectively purchase renewable heat directly from HoSt. For this purpose, HoSt realized a 15 MWth biomass-fired heat and power plant in Andijk and one in Bemmel. The heat and power plant is fired with wood waste from the area and replaces the old gas boiler, allowing the greenhouses to become more sustainable and independent of fossil fuels.
