Dutch biogas plant Wabico receives ISCC certification
Dutch biomethane specialist Wabico (Waalwijkse Biomass Combination) has received an International Sustainability and Carbon Certificate (ISCC EU) certification.
“This certification confirms that Wabico meets high ecological and sustainability requirements in the whole process of producing bioenergy from biomass,” said Marcel te Braak, technical director of HoSt, the turn-key supplier and operator of the Wabico plant.
The ISCC EU is recognised by the European Commission under the European Renewable Energy Directive (RED).
The Wabico plant, built and operated by HoSt in the Netherlands, is one of the most advanced biogas installations in the world, due largely to the wide range of innovative technologies used on site.
The plant is located at the ‘Ecopark’ in Waalwijk, the Netherlands. The Ecopark is an initiative for sustainable energy in the Netherlands and is one of the biggest ecoparks in the country. Three types of large-scale renewable energy installation are operated within the park: solar energy, wind energy and biogas.
Although the plant is commercially operated, it is also used for research and development of new and more sustainable AD technologies and optimisation of existing ones.
The project is constantly developing and thereby contributing to the development of the AD industry. Biogas is produced from waste feedstocks and biogas is upgraded to biomethane. Also, digestate is treated for sewer discharge and solid compost is also produced.
