Right! And we would like to add that the positive effects are of an economical nature as well. The use of renewable energies leads to local added value.
The city of Lünen owns a district heat grid since quite some time that was earlier fired by ship generators amongst others. We included this existing heat grid in our planning and combined it with a micro gas distribution system of 6,5 km length. In this way we achieve a highly efficient utilization of the biogas from the plant.
The biogas plant Lünen with its two characteristic blue steel tanks is charged with 44.000 t of maize silage and 26.000 t of manure annually. A specialty is the separate filling and removal station securing the emission protection at the location within a commercial area.
