More documentation required for all biogas plants

With the new RE-directive which comes into effect from 1 July will a number of changes take place for all biogas plants. These changes depend on whether the biogas plant is upgraded and connected to the grid, or whether the biogas plant supplies the gas directly to a gas engine for electricity and heat production.  For biogas plants with an upgrade  Here, the new […]

Straw is an important player for future biogas production

The almost 10-year-old political ambition in Denmark that 50% of livestock manure should be handled in a biogas plant is still untapped. At the time of writing, the share of livestock manure degassed in the Danish biogas sector is estimated at just over 25%. This means that there is still great potential for more biogas production in Denmark.  According to Biogas Denmark’s biogas Outlook 2021, biogas will be able to fully cover the Danish gas needs in 2030, if there are worked on making 70% of the livestock manure being delivered to the biogas plants. The livestock manure must be supplemented with straw, and for this require the development of techniques that will enable a greater use of straw for biogas. Straw is of crucial importance for future biogas production1.  Biogas Express works on finding the solutions to existing problems and challenges and ensures that our partners are familiar with the latest knowledge in the field and are at the forefront of development. 

Minimal change of name in the Danish legislation – An enormous symbolic value for biogas

On 11 May, a perhaps inconspicuous change was passed in legislation concerning the Danish gas supply. A simple name change means that the legislation that was previously called the “Natural Gas Supply Act” will in future be called the “Gas Supply Act”, and everywhere “natural gas” will be replaced by “gas”.  Literally, the change may seem minimal. But, digging deeper, there is an enormous significance and recognition in this name change that stems from the transformation we as a society are going through and the fact that the gas supply is getting greener and greener year by year.  In 2020, 16.9% of the gas supply was covered by biomethane, and by 2023 this share is expected to increase to 30% 2.  The name change says it all. In the future, we will not be talking about natural gas supply, but rather gas supply of sustainable biomethane.  Biogas Express follows the developments throughout, and we look forward to continuing to contribute to future developments. 

There is still a big potential for Danish biomethane

On TV2 News, Saturday 24 April 2021, it was announced by the Minister of Climate and Environment, Dan Jørgensen, that they are aiming to increase the amount of biomethane from the current approx. 20% to 70% towards 2030. This ambition is in correlation with Biogas Denmark’s note from June 2020, in which it is estimated that only 20% of the manure from […]
