Biogest has received its first order to build an agricultural and food waste biogas plant in South Korea. The project has been developed in cooperation with HC Energy and is supported by the City Government and the Agricultural Technology Center in Changwon. It is hoped that the Biogest PowerCompact biogas plant will be an important reference plant to attract further local projects.
South Korea develops the international Biogest presence with plants in the United Kingdom, France, India, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Romania, Croatia, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Hungary, and Austria.
The plant is located close to a pig farm and the food waste will be delivered from an organic waste collection point. The Biogest PowerCompact biogas plant is able to produce electric and thermal energy. In addition, the air quality of the pig farm can be improved and the residues can be used as organic fertilizer.
Biogest won the UK AD & Biogas Industry Award for ‘Best international micro-scale plant’ with its PowerCompact technology.
