At the plant’s core is a unique piece of Norwegian technology: 10 Antec Bioconverters, which are a game-changer in the field of anaerobic digestion.
The new plant is the largest commercial biogas plant in Western Norway, producing liquefied biogas, liquid CO2 and high-quality bio-fertilisers from raw organic materials from local fisheries (fish silage) and the local aquacultural and agricultural sectors.
The solution for upgrading and liquefaction of biogas and CO2 is delivered by a French partner of RENEVO — CryoPur. A second project with RENEVO is already in the pipeline and will be double the size of the first plant, featuring twice as many Antec Bio-converters.
“The technology we use produces more gas and is up to five times faster than conventional biogas technology. It is the first time this...
