Green Genius, a renewable energy company that is part of Modus Group, has successfully launched a new biogas power plant in the Brest Region, Belarus. A total of more than €5 million was invested in this project. The funding for this project was provided by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
The biogas plant has a total power of 1 MW and is located near one of the biggest pig complexes in the country. To produce green power, the biogas power plant will use approximately 250 000 tpy of organic waste from the pig complex. This will generate approximately 8 GWh of clean electricity annually.
Green Genius operates 7 biogas power plants in Belarus with a total capacity of 8 MW. Each year they supply more than 64 GWh of green energy to the country.
Green Genius is developing solar and biogas projects in six European markets: Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Spain, and Italy. The company is also actively looking for opportunities to expand in other Central European countries.
The total capacity of Green Genius projects currently exceeds 100 MW. According to the company's estimations, these projects allow saving around 170 000 tpy of CO2. By 2025, the total capacity of implemented renewable energy projects by Green Genius is expected to reach 1.5 GW.
