VERBIO biogas plant feeds into German grid

VERBIO Vereinigte Bioenergie AG’s biogas plant in Zörbig, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, is now feeding into MITGAS Netz’ high pressure gas grid.

The €40 million biogas plant can deliver 2500 m3 of biogas per hour, and when fully completed, the biogas plant is expected to deliver 370 GWh of biogas into the natural gas grid.

The biogas is made from agricultural waste.

Dirk Benndorf, Managing Director at MITGAS Netz, says: “In Saxony-Anhalt, the Zörbig plant is the third that we’ve connected to our high pressure gas grid. Because the volume of renewable energies is increasing thanks to political support, there will be more plants to follow.”
