Vesthimmerland Biogas

Vesthimmerland Biogas
– A plant for treatment of slaughterhouse waste

Vesthimmerland Biogas processes approximately 275,000 tons of biomass a year and provides biomethane to approximately 18,000 households a year. In 2022, the company is extending its capacity to process approximately 500,000 tons of biomass a year.

Vesthimmerland Biogas was built to receive virtually all kinds of organic biomass such as liquid manure, deep litter, seed grass straw, energy crops and – as a special feature – also slaughterhouse waste, which is shredded and subsequently processed in a hygienisation plant for heat treatment of biomass before it is transferred to the actual biogas process.
