Second life for biogas plant in Jelsum (NL)

At a cattle farm in Jelsum (NL), a biogas plant producing electricity will be converted into a biogas plant with biogas upgrading to biomethane.

In 2005, HoSt built a biogas plant at the cattle farm generating electricity out of manure and co-products. Now that the tariffs in the Netherlands for producing biomethane are more interesting than for production electricity, the plant is converted and made suitable for biomethane with gas to grid injection.

Meanwhile, a start was made with the renovation. The plant will inject the first biomethane into the grid in early 2017. The plant will produce more than 1 million m3 of biomethane annually, equivalent to the natural gas consumption of 750 households.

This project is executed with Top Sector Energy subsidy from the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
