Heat from biogas production enables reduction of thermal energy costs
Biogas offers a number of outstanding interactions especially with regard to the methods of livestock farming. Pig and poultry farmers, in particular, need considerable amounts of heat. Most of the CHP’s thermal energy can be used for local heat concepts to replace costly fossil fuels or granting the operator additional income by selling it to e.g. public buildings like hospitals, swimming pools or retirement houses. Another way is the addition of a dryer to the biogas plant set up. There are several containerized PlanET plug-and-play solutions for easy integration into existing or newly designed concepts.
A very successful reference of a bioenergy village in Germany is located in Schlöben, Thuringia. A cooperation between local farmers, the local authority and trade companies enables the entire supply with biogas heat of the whole village. Each party benefits in a long-term WIN-WIN cooperation.
