Sustainable energy for households in the Netherlands
The Holwerd waste-to-value plant is our first biogas plant in the Netherlands, founded in 2018. It’s designed to create sustainable biomethane, which is being introduced into the national grid for households’ energy consumption in the Netherlands.
The biogas used to create biomethane, is made from a mixture of livestock manures and other co-products. Via an anaerobic digestion process, we upgrade the biogas to biomethane. The degistate is separated into thin liquid and solid digestate fractions by means of a decanter. Both fractions are further processed and re-utilized as fertilizer.
- We have produced 3,200,000 m3 of biogas of which 13.500 MWh were injected into the Dutch gas grid providing gas to 1650 households.
- Since the upgrade, the installed capacity is 2.5MW.
- We have processed 32,000 tonnes of feedstock (mix of co-products and manure).
- Liquids are stored on-site and used for fertilizer on local farming lands.
- Solids undergo further treatment offsite where it is dried and reused as fertiliser.
Our green solutions
We produce biogas that we upgrade into many useful energy forms, such as biomethane, bio LNG and renewable energy. During the process of making biogas, we convert the surplus into by-products such as organic fertilisers.
The biofuel biomethane is a unique renewable alternative to natural gas. To create this biofuel, we use mainly manure and some organic waste streams.
Bio LNG is liquified biomethane and has a far lower impact on the environment. This biofuel is completely made from organic streams.
We have the innovative capability to turn biomethane into electricity and heat. We create renewable electricity and heat in large Combine Heat and Power (CHP).
After producing the biomethane, we strip the ammonia that is released during the biomethane process from the system and transform it into ammonium sulphate.
After producing methane, there is still a product left high in nutrients. We dry this product and press it into pellets or granules thus producing organic fertiliser.
