Visit at a biogas producent

 |  Category: SPCleantech News

On 01.10.2019 SPCleantech visited the largest biogas producer in Europe, the Danish company Nature Energy from Odense in Denmark. The meeting was attended by technical director, Hans Henrik Dahl Andersen, production chef, Jonas C. Svendsen and Martin, representative of SPCleantech in Denmark. The purpose of the meeting was to establish cooperation in the field of biogas production, which is becoming increasingly relevant in Poland, especially after the adoption of the new RES Act. Nature Energy is interested in biogas production in Poland by investing in large biogas plants throughout the country. After the meeting, we visited a modern biogas plant near Odense. Nature Energy is one of the pioneers of biogas.

The company treats biogas production as an obligation to participate in the ecological conversion of Denmark and considers biogas as the third element of transformation on a par with solar and wind energy. Nature Energy is a leading biogas producer in the country with 15 plants that convert over 1,000,000 tonnes of waste etc. into biogas every year – or enough to heat over 30,000 households with CO2-neutral energy.

Company also supplies biogas to cars from many gas stations and will continue to develop biogas production in cooperation with partners in the sustainable management of domestic, agricultural and industrial waste. Along with the green transformation, Denmark is on track to transition from a “black” economy based on fossil fuels (coal, gas and oil) for a “green” economy with renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, water and recycling. As an important contribution to the green transformation,

Nature Energy is a leading Danish producer of biogas produced from organic materials from agriculture and waste from enterprises and households, and therefore neutral in terms of CO2 emissions. Nature Energy produces green gas, biogas, using manure, food waste and other municipal products. This reduces the emission of gases harmful to the climate from agriculture. At the same time, green gas displaces fossil natural gas, because the increasing amount of green gas means that less fossil natural gas needs to be extracted in the North Sea.
