Biogas plant Vettweiß

Guido Bongard

Mein Name ist Guido Bongard und ich bin stolz darauf, den Betrieb der Biogasanlage Vettweiß zu leiten. Diese Gaseinspeiseanlage ist einfach nur High-Tech!

Soll ich jetzt sagen, dass BioConstruct die besten Biogasanlagen baut? Das glaubt mir doch keiner. Schließlich arbeite ich für BioConstruct.

Aber ich lade Sie gerne ein. Kommen Sie vorbei und ich zeige Ihnen, was den Betrieb dieser Anlage so einfach und so effizient macht. Sie ist intelligent geplant und äußerst robust. Das muss man einfach sehen, nicht lesen. Und außerdem bin ich eh kein Mann der großen Worte. So. Bis dann. Wir seh’n uns.

Thank you Guido. That’s how we know you. So we’ll do the talking.

The bio methane feed-in plant Vettweiß (North Rhine-Westphalia) went operational in December 2012. Following the one in Neukammer (Havelland), it is the second largest feed-in plant we’ve built so far – and it’s the first one we operate ourselves. By doing so, we gain valuable expert knowledge for the construction of further plants. Expertise that each of our clients profits from.

We process bio gas into domestic gas quality and feed this so-called bio methane into the public gas network. This enables the highest possible efficiency in terms of raw material use, because while the bio methane is converted into electricity 100% of the resulting heat is also put use. The domestic gas grid works as a giant transport and storage facility and the biogas also adds stability to the energy grid. That’s because it can be converted into sustainable power whenever the wind doesn’t blow or the sun doesn’t shine.

The raw materials for the plant in Vettweiß – namely sugar beets and corn – are supplied by over 40 farmers from the region. Speaking of which: We’d like to give them our warmest thanks for the good cooperation. We’d also like to thank the municipality of Vettweiß as well as the gas grid operator RWE for their great contributions to the realisation of the project.


Postscript regarding the technology: The plant’s treatment capacity is 550 Nm³ per hour. Technology supplier for the pressure washer is the Swedish company Malmberg Water AB.
