Biomethane – natural gas made from manure!

NORD/LB has been supporting the financing of a biomethane plant with installed electrical capacity of 800 kW and a biomethane feed-in capacity of 700 Nm³ per hour.

NORD/LB has been supporting the financing of a biomethane plant with installed electrical capacity of 800 kW and a biomethane feed-in capacity of 700 Nm³ per hour. The system enables a wide range of sustainable raw materials – primarily the cattle manure from a neighbouring dairy farm – to be refined, generating CO2-neutral green electricity and natural-gas-grade biomethane. A special feature of this project is the 1.7km-long manure pipeline that transports 70,000 m³ of manure from 1,000 dairy cows, calves and dry cattle directly from the cowshed to the biomethane plant. This saves the costs and emissions that transporting this valuable substrate would have incurred. It’s an impressive and unparalleled concept.
