Organic material contains lots of good energy from nature’s eternal cycle, and it is highly efficiently used at Billund BioRefinery.
The patented Exelys™-technology, which is a key element of the Wastewater Treatment Plant of the Future, increases the biogas production by a total of 50 percent compared to conventional plants, and at the same time, the sludge amount is reduced by 30 percent.
The biogas consists of methane and carbon dioxide, and it is a product with many, highly flexible applications. Also, in a changeable future with potential for still more different products and by-products.
At the moment, the biogas is used for production of electricity and heat, but methane and hydrogen may also be used for operation of fuel cells in the future. The biogas can also be used as biofuel for cars, for production of biodegradable bioplastic, for protein production, for storage of CO2 in algae production and in a wide variety of other areas.
Billund BioRefinery makes sure to utilise the energy – in an efficient and flexible way.
