At the AD & Biogas Industry Awards week, Xergi won the category for “Best international agricultural plant” with the biogas plant Nature Energy Holsted, Denmark, which was commissioned by Xergi in 2015. The prestigious award event was held at the AD & Biogas show in Birmingham on 6-7 July.
“We see this award is an acknowledgement of the technical solutions we have developed during the recent years. The new technology means that the biogas plant can extract gas from deep litter and straw – biomasses that were previously unfit for use in biogas production. The award also confirms Xergi’s technological leadership in the business and could open new doors for export of solutions and equipment, “ says CEO Jørgen Ballermann from Xergi.
The biogas plant in Holsted, Denmark, is developed by a group of farmers and Xergi in cooperation.
The investors behind the plant is the Danish energy company NGF Nature Energy and Xergi, in addition to the group of farmers which also delivers deep litter and animal slurry to the plant.
The plant is unique as it treats more than 50,000 tons of deep litter per year and approx. 400,000 tons of biomasses in total. Xergi’s pretreatment concept X-hopper® and X-chopper® is used to pretreat the biomasses – a robust technology which has obtained a European patent.
Furthermore, the biogas production creates additional value for agriculture as it converts the challenging biomasses into a liquid bio fertilizer.
