We are counting down to the AD and Biogas Industry Awards ceremony and gala dinner, organized by the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA). HoSt is shortlisted in two award categories. Winners of each award category will be announced on Wednesday 3rd of July.

Our Microferm biogas-to-biomethane plant in Merselo, Netherlands is nominated in the category ‘Best Biogas Plant equal to or below 1MWe-equivalent’. In the category ‘Best Biogas Plant equal to or above 1MWe-equivalent’ our BECH anaerobic digestion plant in Harderwijk, Netherlands has been nominated.

Microferm project in Merselo

The Microferm 100% manure digestion plant at dairy farm Loonen in Merselo (NL) represents a project of the future. Jumpstart, an initiative of Dutch dairy cooperative FrieslandCampina made possible by government’s subsidy, facilitates dairy farmers who want to realize mono-manure digesters plants on their own farm. This collaboration is attractive for dairy farmers to exploit their own monomanure plant, produce renewable biomethane, reduce the emission of greenhouse gases and contribute to the reduction of the Dutch manure problem. This Microferm uses Bright Biomethane’s membrane biogas upgrading technology and operation system with patented method.

BECH project in Harderwijk

The BECH project in Harderwijk (NL) is a result of the unique public-private partnership between a Dutch Regional Water Authority, a Dutch manure transport company and HoSt. It’s an outstanding project with heat recovery and digestate treatment technology resulting in three end products: biomethane, clean dischargeable water and digestate/compost. High-quality fertilisers are processed for local sales in the agriculture sector. After hygienisation, the digestate is separated into a thick and a thin fraction by a filter press. This exportworthy thick fraction is exported. The thin fraction passes through a biological purification, which results in dischargeable water that is discharged into the sewer.
