Biogest has received its first order to build an agricultural biogas plant near Ankara in Turkey. The project Akyurt is the first biogas plant in Turkey, which was developed in cooperation with Enerlinc Ltd.
After successfully entering the Asian market with an Indian and South Korean Biogest PowerCompact biogas plant, this Biogest PowerRing biogas plant is another milestone for further Asian projects. Followed by projects in the United Kingdom, France, India, South Korea, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Romania, Croatia, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland and Austria, this biogas plant in Turkey represents an essential reference plant for further local projects.
The plant has an electrical output of 3.12 MW and is operated with cattle slurry only, using 270 tpy. The slurry will be transformed during the production process into high quality organic fertilizer, which substitutes the use of chemical fertilizers. The biogas plant is carried out in the proven high efficiency Biogest PowerRing technology, which has advantages regarding the energy efficiency and operational safety as well as the space-saving modular design.
The biogas production from animal, agricultural and domestic waste is one of the most frequently studied and researched topics in Turkey. The Turkish Law forbids spreading the fresh slurry on fields, which creates another incentive to transform the slurry into energy. The published tariff by the Renewable Energy Resources Support Mechanism (YEKDEM) is attractive until September 2020.
