Biogas plant Wabico in the Dutch Waalwijk, one of the most advanced biogas to biomethane plants in the world, received the highly coveted International Sustainability and Carbon Certificate (ISCC EU) certification.
“This certification confirms that Wabico meets high ecological and sustainability requirements in the whole process of producing bioenergy from biomass”, says Marcel te Braak, technical director of HoSt, the turn-key supplier and operator of the Wabico plant.
The ISCC EU, which is recognized by the European Commission under the European Renewable Energy Directive (RED), is moreover proof of Wabico’s compliance with stringent EU requirements on traceability of origin of the entire supply chain, sustainable biomass production and the greenhouse gas savings in comparison to fossil fuels.
The Wabico (Waalwijkse Biomass Combination) plant, built and operated by HoSt in the Netherlands, is one of the most advanced biogas installations in the world, due largely to the wide range of innovative technologies used on site. The plant is located at the ‘Ecopark’ in Waalwijk, Netherlands. The Ecopark is a unique initiative for sustainable energy in the Netherlands and is one of the biggest ecoparks in the country. Three types of large scale renewable energy installations are operated within the park: solar energy, wind energy and bioenergy from biomass.
Although the plant is commercially operated, it is also used for research and development of new and more sustainable AD technologies and optimisation of existing ones. The project is constantly developing and thereby contributing to the development of the AD industry. Biogas is produced from waste feedstocks and biogas is upgraded to biomethane. Also, digestate is treated for sewer discharge and solid compost is also produced.
