It is not easy to give a simple answer to the question “What does biogas plant cost?”
As the total price depends on many factors.
Biogas plants for dry fermentation (stackable biomass, solid manure) stand for great growth potential in renewable energy worldwide and are increasingly attracting the attention of numerous farmers, waste management companies, and investors. But for whom and under which conditions are a biogas plant actually attractive? When does the construction and operation of a biogas plant pay off? What does a biogas plant cost?
With our biogas calculator, we would like to give you a first orientation for energy potentials and possible revenues.
In order to operate a dry digestion biogas plant as successfully as possible, an efficient and sustainable use of all available resources is necessary.
This includes the comprehensive use of the energy obtained (gas, electricity and heat), as well as the use of the high-quality digestate (organic fertiliser). Partnerships for the delivery of substrates and the sale of the produced main and by-products can result in win-win situations.
CHECKLIST – At best, as many of these statements apply to you as possible:
- You are a farmer, a livestock farmer (horses, cattle, poultry)
or a disposer of private or municipal biomass
- You have a constant incoming stream of solid manure, green material, green waste or biowaste
- You have an expandable area for the construction of a biogas plant with storage space
- You have good relations with neighbouring farmers or communities for the development of partnerships
(electricity, heat, gas, trade in substrates, fertilisers and compost)
- There are considerations or plans in the community for the expansion of the energy networks (electricity, heat, gas)
- So far there are few biogas plants for the disposal of organic residues in your region
- You own or operate a composting facility (compost yard/place) and want to use it for energy recovery of the available substrates (cascade use)
