Biomethane from regenerative fuels

We are building a sustainable closed energy cycle

Biogas is one of the most versatile renewable fuels – it can be used both to supply electricity and heating energy and as a fuel for natural gas-powered vehicles. Since autumn 2012, our biomethane plant in Klein Wanzleben in Saxony-Anhalt has been feeding environmentally-friendly biomethane into the public grid. Operations at our second plant, located in nearby Kroppenstedt, began spring 2014. A third highly efficient plant is in Stassfurt, also in Saxony-Anhalt, another one is in Barby in Salzland district. Furthermore, MVV Enamic also operates four biogas plants nationwide.

Waste-free closed cycle

The fuels we use at our biomethane plants are grown on arable land within a maximum radius of 20 kilometres from the plants. Following fermentation at the plants, virtually all of the substrates deployed can be put to use as valuable natural manures, thus replacing more harmful artificial manures. This closes the cycle, as these valuable nutrients promote the growth of new energy plants which can in turn be used to generate biomethane. The result is a sustainable closed energy cycle that produces almost no waste.

Decentralised electricity and heating energy generation

Around 60,000 tonnes of regenerative fuels are fermented at each of our biomethane plants each year. The biogas thereby produced is refined on location into biomethane and then fed into the public natural gas grid.

Our Plants

Klein Wanzleben biomethane plant

The plant produces around 5.8 million cubic meters of biomethane per year from 60,000 tons of corn silage and sugar beet pulp.

Straßfurt biomethane plant

The gas produced in Staßfurt can be used to generate green electricity for an estimated 6,000 families in decentralised combined heat and power plants.
