MICROFERM MONO MANURE PLANT IN KAMPEN SUCCESSFULLY DELIVERS BIOMETHANE-TO-GRID
The Microferm manure biomethane plant in Kampen in the Netherlands successfully delivered its first biomethane to the national gas grid. Construction began in January of this year and the installation became fully operational, with the injection of its first biomethane, in April.
This Microferm Green Gas Installation, both operated and maintained by HoSt, produces 252,000 Nm3 (cubic meters) of green gas from 15,000 tonnes of manure each year, of which a maximum of 5% is agricultural co-products. More than 160 Dutch households can use the produced green gas for cooking, heating and hot water.
The manure is anaerobically digested in the digester and converted into biogas. In the biogas upgrading system, the biogas produced is upgraded to biomethane (green gas). Subsequently, the product gas with natural gas quality is fed directly into the natural gas network.
