AUGA group, AB and its subsidiaries (the Group), which develop sustainable agricultural technologies and solutions, has commenced the supply of biomethane gas through the natural gas system operated by the gas transmission system operator Amber Grid, AB.
Produced in Lithuania, the gas will be sold on the German market, which the company said has the most developed biomethane infrastructure in Europe.
The project capacities of three biogas power plants will allow for the generation of 61 thousand megawatt hours of gas per year.
The group of companies sells biomethane gas to the company Tube Green, UAB.
The gas is transmitted into the natural gas system using the company's gas intake point.
This opportunity to supply biomethane gas to the natural gas system via a remote intake point not directly connected to the gas production facility only emerged at the end of last year, said the company.
"Although we have been able to start producing biomethane gas for some time, laws of the Republic of Lithuania did not envisage the supply of such gas through an intake point separate from the production facility," said Kęstutis Juščius, the chair of the Board of AUGA group, AB.
"We are pleased that, as the result of long and steady work, we and other biomethane gas producers in the country now have the opportunity to produce green gas in regions where sufficient raw material demand can be ensured, and the gas that is produced can later be successfully sold on the local or international market.”
According to Kęstutis Juščius, sustainable technologies and products, like the production of biomethane from agricultural secondary raw materials, while requiring investments, can be successfully commercialised today and will ensure a new stable source of income for the group of companies.
Additionally, biomethane is one of the most advanced types of renewable energy and is an integral part of the circular economy business model that Group is developing. In the future, this gas will be used in the AUGA M1 tractors developed by the group of companies.
