Because we want to make our blue planet a greener place
Biogas can help close the gap in the green energy supply. Because when there is no wind, and when the sun doesn’t shine, we need a sustainable alternative to make the ends meet. This alternative is biogas, and that’s exactly what we are working for.
The biogas process
Biogas production uses the methane contained in organic material. Methane can replace natural gas and is also the cheapest way to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gasses from agriculture. Actually, degassed livestock manure is more efficient and less damaging to the aquatic environment than unprocessed manure.
An efficient process
During the processing of biogas, organic waste is transformed into green energy by using the greenhouse gases methane and nitrous oxide, which are up to 35 times more hazardous than CO2. Methane can be transmitted directly into the gas network instead of natural gas, and the degassed organic material can be uses as manure in the fields.
Environmental benefits from biogas production
Biogas is a sustainable and CO2 neutral energy form. No fossil carbon is emitted when burning biogas as it is the case with coal, oil, and natural gas. The significant greenhouses gases methane and nitrous oxide are further collected and utilized. These gases are formed, when livestock manure is spread on fields without being processed in biogas plants. This makes the production of biogas the cheapest solution for reducing agricultural greenhouse gas emissions.
Another important factor is that degassed livestock manure has higher nitrogen energy efficiency on plants than unprocessed livestock manure, meaning that plants more easily absorb the nutrients in degassed livestock manure. The use of biogas therefore results in reduced nitrogen stripping into our groundwater.
Green transition through biogas
Here, you can take a closer look at some of Lundsby’s biogas plants that contribute to the green transition. Our plants are always designed and customised to accommodate your specific needs, regardless of the type and quantity of organic waste, which you with to transform into green energy.
Vinkel Bioenergi was built to process 430,000 tons of biomass annually and supply biomethane to about 25,000 households per year. This makes Vinkel Bioenergi one of the largest biogas plants in Denmark.Biogas plant upgraded for biomethaneHøjslev, Denmark52,000,000 Nm³...
Vesthimmerland Biogas processes about 275,000 tons of biomass a year and supplies biomethane corresponding to the consumption of about 18,000 households each year. In 2022, the company is expanding in order to be able to process about 500,000 tons of biomass a...
In July 2021, Lundsby commissioned Grauballegaard Biogas. The biogas plant is located in Lemming north of Silkeborg. In this area, there are several farmers that can supply biomass to the biogas plant. Owner of Grauballegaard and co-owner of Grauballegaard Biogas,...
