Biogas plants

The production of biogas has great advantages for us. We can afford to feed the animals with he best feed and worse quality of feed is used in biogas plants. We use organic matter to produce electricity, heat and organomineral fertilizer. In addition to organic carbon, most nutrients are returned to the field. We run two biogas plants, one in Lesonice and one in Krahulov.

How a biogas plant works

Input raw materials

  • Silage

    Silage is one of the basic bulk feed. We process corn and rye silage.

  • Dung and manure slurry

    Dung and manure slurry contain bacteria from the digestive tract of animals and plenty of minerals. Their processing at the biogas station greatly stabilizes the fermentation process in fermenters.

  • Residual side products

    The biogas plant also efficiently processes secondary, unusable food products such as residual raw materials from sugar or citric acid production.

Biogas plant

The feedstock is mixed and crushed until an organic "slurry" is formed. It is placed in a fermenter where it is stirred and heated to 42°C. At this temperature, anaerobic bacteria is helped to decompose the organic matter without the air and release the resulting gas. The gas is burnt in a generator and electricity is produced.

Output products

  • Digestate

    Digestate is a remaining material ofter the feed has been fermented. It is a good liquid organomineral fertilizer with an interesting ratio of essential nutrients.

  • Electricity

    Electricity is the main product of a biogas plant. It is produced by burning biogas in a cogeneration unit.

  • Steam / Heat

    The by-product in the production of electricity is heat in the form of hot water or steam. The steam is only produced in the biogas plant in Krahulov.
