New biogas plant in France moves forward
Germany-based biogas plant manufacturer Weltec Power has been chosen to help bring a new project online in France.
The company will work with engineering and development business Methaneo to establish a 500kW plant in Saint Varent, western France. Weltec has worked on five previous biogas projects in the country to date.
‘We decided to work with Weltec because it is capable of integrating our concepts into its biogas plants,’ Methaneo director Yann Mercier was quoted as saying.
It is believed construction work is set to begin next month, with the plant feeding power into the national grid as soon as July 2013. Feedstock mentioned for use included various animal manure and grain residue.
