Weltec Biopower completes biogas plant in Czech Republic
Weltec Biopower, a German biogas plant manufacturer, has completed the construction of its fifth plant in the Czech Republic.
Located in Příložany, the plant converts pig manure, grass silage, maize silage, crop silage and grain waste into 366kW of renewable energy, which is fed into the grid.
Completed by Weltec in four months, the plant comprises a 2,500m3 stainless steel fermenter, a CHP power generation plant and a 35m3 vertical dosing feeder.
Biomass is expected to become a primary source of renewable energy in the Czech Republic by 2015.
