Germany based WELTEC BioPower has announced it has received an order for one of its’ projects in France – and it has hinted more order may be on the way.
French agriculture has a wealth of raw and waste materials that are suitable for biogas plants. However, only half of the available materials are presently used for energy production. However, ambitious targets to raise biogas usage up to 50% by 2020 have been drawn up.
It’s no wonder that the number of RFPs for plant projects for the generation of energy from biomass is on the rise. This affects the order pipeline of established biogas plant manufacturers like the German WELTEC BioPower GmbH. Meanwhile, the project list includes about 30 French biogas plants. Some of these projects are rolled out in cooperation with Méthalac from Lyon, France.
This expertise was one of the reasons why WELTEC BioPower and Méthalac received an order for a biogas project with gas processing in summer 2014. The plant in the north of the Franche-Comté region on the Swiss border will be completed in spring 2015, after which it is expected to supply biomethane to the French natural gas grid at a rate of 70 standard m3/h.
