Bright Biomethane will construct a biomethane plant for Dutch waste management company Twence.

At a former landfill site in the east of the Netherlands, 250,000 tons of pig manure will be converted into biogas and raw materials in a manure biogas plant. In the final step, the biogas will be upgraded to biomethane in Bright’s biogas upgrading system with a capacity of 1,000 Nm3 of biomethane per hour. This is equivalent to the annual gas consumption of around 3,000 households. The gas will be distributed to homes and businesses via Coteq Netbeheer’s natural gas network.

“We supply and build our systems worldwide,” said Maarten Holtkamp, sales director at Bright Biomethane. “Even for locations without gas infrastructure, Bright offers a (virtual pipeline) solution. It is a positive development that our technology is also being used more and more regionally.

“We are excited that Twence, as a forerunner in promoting the circular economy, is working with Bright to contribute to the regional and national energy transition.”

Harry Hegeman, project leader at Twence, said: “Closer regional cooperation is essential for Twence in making the region more sustainable and promoting regional employment. We are very pleased with the collaboration with Bright, a company that offers a proven, well-developed technology for producing RNG from residual streams.”
