    Technology

    Biological waste is fermented in a closed digester. The process is a multi-stage dry fermentation whose final product is biogas. Natural microorganisms transform the stored energy in methane CH4 und carbon dioxide CO2. The energy density depends on the methane percentage.

    Biogas and landfill gas are mixed and subsequently burned in gas engines from the landfill gas power plant. The solid digested residue could be reused as organic fertiliser or as fuel for the biomass power plant.
