Biogas plant in Saxony-Anhalt

Manure upgrading for the creation of a single-stage biogas plant for electricity and heat production



LOCATION: Sachsen-Anhalt (Germany) 
ACTIVITY: Planning, execution and construction

The fermentation substrate is kept at a temperature in the mesophilic range (approx. 40° C) in the fermenter in order to provide an optimal environment for the methane-forming bacteria. The temperature required to maintain the biogas process is provided by the waste heat from the combined heat and power plant and introduced by means of the fermenter heater.

The Bio-Gas Project in Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany, completed years ago, marks a significant milestone in the region’s sustainability journey.

Project Highlights:

  • Total Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Capacity: 165 kW.
  • Electrical Power Output: 75 kWel.
  • Thermal Power Output: 90 kW.
  • Electrical Efficiency: 37.80%.
  • Annual Operating Hours: 8,200 hrs.
  • Total Annual Power Production: 615,000 kWh.
  • Transformer Losses: 1.10%.
  • Net Annual Power Output: 608,235 kWh.
  • Average Power Output: 74.20 kW.
  • Self-consumed Power: Approximately 7.0% of total output.
  • Gas Source: 100% Biogas.

Under the exceptional leadership of Cimec and with the expertise of Dipl. Ing. A. Zörb, the meticulously planned and executed Bio-GasTreatment Plant prioritized key technical aspects:

In Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany, the Bio-Gas Project stands as a beacon of sustainable innovation. Completed several years ago, it represents the region’s dedication to a greener future and showcases the tremendous potential of renewable energy sources.

As the figures suggest, the Bio-Gas Project not only has substantial power capacity but also operates efficiently, minimizing losses and maximizing output. The use of biogas as the primary fuel source underscores the project’s commitment to environmentally friendly power generation.

This endeavor is more than just numbers and technical specifications – it’s a testament to the vision of Sachsen-Anhalt in pioneering a sustainable path for the future.
