Repowering of a biogas plant in Jelsum, NL
From CHP to biomethane
The biogas plant at Groengas Jelsum, the Netherlands went through multiple repowerings. During the repowering, the plant integrated a Greenstep system for an optimal anaerobic digestion process and the CHP system was replaced with a biogas upgrading plant. The result is an annual production of 2.4 million Nm3 of biomethane. This impressive output underlines the significant impact of repowering and renewable energy technologies.
Providing biomethane for Dutch households
Efficient biogas production results in annual production of more than 1 million Nm3 of biomethane – equivalent to the annual gas consumption of 1,000 Dutch households. The biogas plant converts organic residues and manure into renewable energy while creating additional income.
Efficient biogas production since 2006
The biogas plant was constructed in 2006 by HoSt and has been producing biogas ever since. Initially, the biogas plant was designed to generate electricity from manure and by-products. However ,in 2016, the facility underwent a repowering. Adapting the plant to biomethane production with capabilities for gas-to-grid injection. Thereafter in 2022, HoSt replaced the biogas upgrading system with an even larger plant – fully optimizing efficiency of the biogas facility.
