Our Klein Wanzleben biomethane plant

Electricity and heat from renewable raw materials

Since September 2012 we have been operating in Klein Wanzleben, 20 kilometers southwest of Magdeburg, a biomethane plant. It produces around 5.8 million cubic meters of biomethane from 60,000 tons of corn silage and sugar beet pulp per year. When electricity is generated in decentralised combined heat and power plants, this can be used to generate green electricity for 6,000 families; in addition, 1,200 households can cover their heating requirements.

Network with other biomethane plants

In our four biomethane plants in the Madgeburger Börde we recycle almost 250,000 tonnes of substrate per year - in addition to renewable raw materials such as maize silage, manure and chicken manure from animal husbandry are also used. After fermentation, the substrates used are completely reused on site in the plant as valuable natural fertilizer and thus replace artificial fertilizer. This closes the circle, because new energy crops for the production of biomethane grow with the help of these valuable nutrients. The result is a sustainable recycling economy that does not produce any waste products. The energy generated is CO2-neutral, so that our four plants save a total of around 80,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
