Major Danish biogas producer Nature Energy has started construction on a large-scale biogas plant near Aabenraa, southern Denmark.
The biogas plant, Nature Energy Kværs, is expected to be ready to produce large quantities of climate-friendly biogas by April 2022. The project will take place in collaboration with the local supplier association, BioenergiSyd, which will supply a large part of the biomass to the plant.
Ole Hvelplund, Nature Energy’s CEO, said: “Biogas production will be in close collaboration with the supplier association, BioenergiSyd, with whom we have a good collaboration.
“Together, we will significantly strengthen biogas production when the plant in Kværs is expected to send the first biogas to the gas grid as early as April 2022.
“Nature Energy Kværs will be a state-of-the-art large-scale biogas plant with a huge potential for producing large amounts of green energy. The construction of the new plant has already started, and we are very much looking forward to starting biogas production.”
The plant will handle as much as 800,000 tonnes of biomass annually with full expansion. Initially, the facility will process 400,000 tons per year, which will produce approximately 24 million m3 of green gas per year.
Nature Energy recently connected its new plant, Glansager, to the gas network, and together with this plant, the Kvaers facility will make a significant contribution to the production of carbon-neutral energy in the area.
