Biogas Leeuwarden, Update 2

Biogas Leeuwarden BV is increasing the gas production at the Diary Campus in Leeuwarden from 2 miljoen Nm3 biogas to 7 miljoen Nm3 biogas a year. The biogas is currently being converted into electricity via a combined heat and power unit (CHP).

The use of excess residual heat, after the combustion of biogas to generate electricity in a CHP, is a difficult process. Furthermore, the conversion of biogas to green gas has a higher return on investment than the conversion of biogas to electricity. With the help of a gas upgrade installation the production is being upscaled. This installation from Biogas Leeuwarden BV will be commissioned mid-2018.

Biolease Nederland BV is a collaboration between DMT Environmental Technology BV, the NOM (investment and development company for northern Netherlands), Fûns Skjinne Fryske Enerzjy and Brouwer Holding BV. Biogas Leeuwarden BV leases the installation from Biolease Nederland BV with a twelve-year warranty.
